    I have been working at Intertek full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    From the day your hired you have 4 weeks PTO. You don't have to clock in or out and your not micro managed

    Cons

    Management is horrible! Lack of support, no training. Treat employees with little to no respect. Everyone back stabs and looks out for themselves

    Advice to Management

    You need to restructure and rehire some of your key kogs. As some who have been with the company for many years feel as if they can talk to employees as they want. Support and train new hires

    I worked at Intertek full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent salary, decent benefits and not a terrible corporate culture.

    Cons

    The specific location I worked at was not the best - management would constantly bad mouth other Intertek offices and labs. Inadequate training (if at all). Management not receptive to any feedback.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to develop an actual training SOP and learn to understand that Intertek locations may not be as staffed as yours.

    I have been working at Intertek full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have been with Intertek/PSI for a year now and I love my job! My boss is great and all of my co-workers are wonderful! I definitely look forward to coming to work every day!

    Cons

    Forced shut down around the holidays. This forces employees to use what little vacation time they have. I understand this may change in the coming year.

    Advice to Management

    This really is a great company to work for! My only advise would be to make sure you let all of your employees know that they are appreciated. Perhaps an employee appreciation day?

    I have been working at Intertek full-time

    Pros

    I can't think think of any.

    Cons

    No communication, people are staying certified in things that they don't even do, employees are severely under paid, they say you will doing one thing but sneak their way into making you do other things. I found out what people are really making and some techs are making more than 3x the amount I am with less than a years experience. Just an overall shady operation. No family time, completely unorganized

    Advice to Management

    Understand that not all of your employees are oblivious to the situations going on around them.
