    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 do tests.

    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.

    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.
