      Negative Outlook
      No Opinion of CEO

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

      Pros

      Do what ever you like. If you can make managers happy, you can do anything you like.

      Cons

      Hard work with bad outcome. If you believe you can survive by working hard, you are wrong. Intertek has lots of almost independent business units. Those units managers make themselves looking like KING. If they are unhappy, no matter what job you can do, you are nothing. They do not care because they can cheating customers. For example Sydney laboratory release fraud testing reports to customers, even its staffs do not...

      Negative Outlook
      No Opinion of CEO

      I worked at Intertek full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Good entry level job to get experience- don’t stay longer than 6 months

      Cons

      Huge staff turnover Management lies about salary ranges leaving large differences between people doing the same job Constant empty promises from management Extra hours not paid and expected to be on call 24/7 Management is only interested in their Bonuses and nobody else matters. Avoid the company to save yourself the stress

      Advice to Management

      Have a proper salary structure and ladder instead of just paying your favourite employees double what others are on, even though they are in the same role.

      I have been working at Intertek full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      None apart from a permanent job

      Cons

      Wages are terrible, admin support non-existent, Superintendents have no idea how to run a lab. Negative attitude of the Superintendent filters down, lays blame to staff and steals ideas from experienced members. Do not work here if you value the boss' integrity.

      Advice to Management

      You are the reason for poor attitudes and even worse conditions.

      I worked at Intertek full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      I was hired to create a new coal testing facility and was given reasonable flexibility to select and setup equipment that I felt was required.

      Cons

      The culture of my particular office was quite poor. There were no professional development opportunities or interest in the goals and hopes of employees from management. Management were very reactive to situations and rarely appeared proactive.

      Advice to Management

      Take more interest in the long term development of employees; good staff members left quickly when they realised that Intertek was not a place to progress their careers.

      Lack of career development opportunities. Too many layers of management. Lack of collaboration and innovation.

      Advice to Management

      Offer genuine career development opportunities.

      I worked at Intertek

      Pros

      Was a good career start. Some good people and colleagues around. Got to travel a bit.

      Cons

      Almost everything. There was on respect at all from management therefore no one respected them. The CEO would visit other offices maybe once every 5 years and never once even said hello to the employees. Management is absolutely atrocious - no care whatsoever for any employees and were extremely secretive about financials, state of the company etc. Socialising was frowned upon which made it difficult to enjoy your working...

      Advice to Management

      Honestly, there is absolutely nothing management can do unless they replace themselves.
