    Disorganized and unrealistic expectations

    Pros

    The company culture at Intertek is great. There is a lot of room to grow and you will learn a variety of skills quickly. Has a good benefits package. Great place to get your foot in the door.

    Cons

    The company is disorganized. Due to constant turn over and the general disorganization workloads are unrealistic greatly affecting work life balance. The pay is lackluster.

    Great for the experience

    Pros

    For new grads it's a great opportunity to gain lab experience and build your resume. There are a few good hard-working people here who really do care.

    Cons

    There's no real room for growth as career advancement is not encouraged. It's easy to get pigeonholed in a position and never excel. It's a frustrating place to work, those who deserve promotions (recognition, congratulations, thank you, etc.) never get it. Poor work/life balance; the demands of the job and non-competitive pay are just not worth the sacrifices.

    Pros

    Not one pro about this company.

    Cons

    Work load was far too much. Management not appreciative of the amount of overtime put in. Disrespectful employees. Favoritism based on race was very common. HR did nothing to remedy office problems. People come and go from this office for countless reasons. There is no work/life balance and you can forget having a social life.
