    I worked at Intertek full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Generous PTO 4 weeks start. Good benefits. Work/Life Balance excellent. Had some great Co workers.

    Cons

    Do you want to work for a company that helps you grow, advance, and where you can learn new skills. DO NOT work here. Hard to advance.
    Company has favorites and if you're not one than you are out of luck. Office politics are bad.
    Not really great raises.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate hard work and don't pick favorites.

    Pros

    People are tops! Good benefits.

    Cons

    Poor communication, employee turnover, poor change management. Poor alliances between departments.

    Advice to Management

    Sad to say that response time of this large corporation often hampers a competitive edge. Even contract reviews are slow before they are returned to clients. Employees find it easier to find work around than use the IT.

    Pros

    Few good engineers in the organization. Unsure why they stay.

    Cons

    Management is clueless and uneducated. HR is worst of any company been involved with.

    Advice to Management

    CALL BACK when people take time to come in for an interview. Know of multiple individuals who took the time to have on site interview to never hear back from either phone or email on status. Disgusting.
