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

    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.

    Pros

    Intertek has a diverse environment and allows for learning by doing within your own position. There are opportunities for growth if you happen to have the right management.

    Cons

    Management oftentimes cannot perceive you in any role other than the one you currently hold so transferring to another team/division is not offered or an option. There is a lack of clear communication from management, realising that some topics should not be divulged in their entirety, but employees left to their own imaginations as to the reasons for organizational changes will always assume the worst.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers should be tasked with writing reviews for their employees - stop using irrelevant employee self review forms as the basis for annual review.
