    I worked at Intertek full-time

    Pros

    The group is a very dynamic as the organisation and business structure keep changing every year. It is a good training ground and yet rewarding.

    Cons

    Too frequent changes may make one employee feel great pressure in adapting changes. Due to the cost cutting exercise, the employees' performance bonus are cut at the expense of employees' benefits.

    Top management does not seem to have clear directions that result in unnecessary changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Intertek is in a servicing industry- management should care about employees' welfare. Turning around the financial performance should not at the expense of the employees; especially those who has contributed to the financial performance positively.

    Former Employee - Team Leader - Toys and Customer Service in Leicester, England (UK)

    I worked at Intertek full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I was really lucky and had the oportunity from the very begining to create the role into what I wanted it to be. My role was so varied from really focussed customer delivery, visits to new, exisiting and potential clients all the through to supporting my thirst to learn more from a technical perspective.

    Cons

    With the greatest of respect, some really technical people aren't necessarily great people people (and this remains true even in my job with a different company). Many of the senior colleagues in the business were there (both internal promotions and externally bought in) for technical expertise rather than leadership which was sometimes a miss. The approach at that time to HR issues were a little more generous than other employers. The MD I had when I left was pretty awesome guy though - completely about people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look to how you can inspire the team through leadership and possibilities rather than a pure technicain viewpoint. I only left because succession opportunities were limited due to my need to be based in the Midlands - it was such a hard decision to leave and I do still miss it there.
