Intuitive Learning Place
Engineer (Current Employee) –  Cortland, NYSeptember 18, 2018
You get the opportunities to get to know new products from the manufacturers and always get exposed to new technologies. Project span varies a lot and sometimes it can be a challenge because of the scheduling. Overall not a bad place if you are looking for a progressive learning place.
But on the downside, compensate, benefit and promotion are not competitive.
Pros
Pto, Traveling, Progressive Learning
Cons
Compensate, Traveling

Versitile work, but subpar management
LABORATORY TECHNICIAN (Current Employee) –  Saint Rose, LASeptember 13, 2018
You have the opportunity to learn more testing methods than other labs; however, shift work completely kills your job/work life balance especially since you are on call on your off days. You never really feel free to make plans and live your life.

ok place if you have no family
Petroleum Inspector (Former Employee) –  Bellingham, WASeptember 9, 2018
Ok place to work, can make a good living if you are single and do not mind being on call 24/7. Horrible hours, stressful work, no sleep. Some people seem to like the money when you are working a lot of hours though. They do provide company vehicles.

unorganized management
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Arlington Heights, ILSeptember 6, 2018
Intertek has the longest system to hire temp employees. Management is unorganized. No actual training is provided which causes many employees to have a hard time with work.

It’s a very political environment. If you aren’t popular with management it is very hard to advance.
Lab/octane technician (Current Employee) –  St. Rose, LAAugust 23, 2018
They always seem to be short staffed. They don’t pay as well as other labs. You are on call most of your off days which you don’t get compensated for unless they call you in. You can’t make plans on your off days because there is a good chance you will get called in.
Pros
Health care
Cons
Always busy, get called in a lot, hard to get promotions

Poor Management
Billing Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Deer Park, TXAugust 23, 2018
This company has been having serious problems since 2016. There is a feast or famine culture. I worked in AR for 3 years and when work slowed enough that we had a semblance of work/life balance they laid people off. They don't do yearly raises, 0.24/hour the last two years. But if you can make it at Intertek every other job will be a piece of cake.

Not a good company to progress with.
Inspector/Dispatcher/Coordinator/QHSE Manager (Former Employee) –  Essington, PAAugust 2, 2018
All I have to say for working with Intertek for 20 years. They do not follow their own policy's. Especially Safety. They frown apond any reporting of incidents. When audited by outside government or customers, they tell you to falsify information. Bonus are given to keep mouth shut.
Pros
none
Cons
To much to mention.

Foot in door
Project Analyst (Current Employee) –  San Diego, CAJuly 1, 2018
Great place to get your foot in the door to gain experience, however, there is very little employee appreciation. At the end of the day, it's data and revenue driven. If there are any priority shifts, its due to whether if it generates revenue for the company or not.
Pros
experience
