    I have been working at Intertek full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    You can learn a lot, from time management to method testing. Great for someone with absolutely no experience. If you are going no where in life then you can go far with this company; knowledge and experience does not matter to this company.

    Cons

    Management are complete dimwits. To them 2 years of taking out the trash is considered more experience than a 4 year college degree. Very disorganized. Quality Control is never verified and lab techs are known to pencil in SQC numbers. Safety is considerable lacking and sometimes very dangerous. Bullying/harassment from upper management is a extreme issue at this particular location.

    Advice to Management

    Your company can only work well if your management is strong. I can see many failures in this particular locations future. You need a trainer who know what they are doing. None of the techs can go to the trainer for any help.

    I have been working at Intertek full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The attitude of sincere teamwork, support, and the people who work here are committed and dedicated and work overtime voluntarily for free because they want to contribute to our goals.

    Cons

    Absolutely none. The way the managers in the East Gulf Coast region run their business is perfect, and employee morale is exceptionally high.

    Advice to Management

    To the East Gulf Coast managers, don't change a thing. You guys are great!

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

    Pros

    I have been able to get good experience that should help me land a future position
    Most managers/supervisors are good when personal issues come up
    Pretty decent benefits

    Cons

    Utter lack of appreciation and respect by upper management
    They do not want to promote some people because they are good at their current positions so it is not easy for people to advance. Other people end up getting those jobs
    Workers often have to put their two weeks' notice in order to get a raise
    Getting a promotion and being promised a raise does not mean you will get that raise
    Upper management seems utterly clueless (or doesn't care) that morale is nosediving
    There is no accountability for workers who don't do their jobs
    More than half of the staff in the laboratory are actively looking for other jobs
    Morale is in the trash

    Advice to Management

    Why are you forcing so many talented people out of the company? You are hurting this company you claim to want to advance. Why do you see us as trash instead of utilizing the personnel resources that you already have?
