    I worked at Intertek full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It is difficult to think of any.

    Cons

    The organization is completely dysfunctional. The management does not have any vision and operates like a start-up despite being a well established organization. Too many deadlines, metrics, moving targets, too much turmoil and organizational changes. Constant hair on fire environment.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a vision for the future. Stop focusing on monthly revenue targets and look for ways to expand the business. Make employees feel appreciated instead of overworked.

    Pros

    The people (employees) are great and reason for most to stay even though pay is low and not market value.

    Cons

    HR and senior management sucks. Leadership reflects attitude... and leadership there are like do as I say but don't do as I do. Many of them are not there most of the time but expect employees to be present.

    Advice to Management

    People are your assets, take better care of them.
