    Current Employee - Engineer in Oakdale, MN (US)

    I have been working at Intertek full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Job is fairly flexible schedule wise (coming and going for the day). The pay is good, even for someone new to the industry/entry level. Also, 4 weeks of paid vacation a year when you start! It has been a good learning experience. Co-workers are great and always helpful with questions.

    Cons

    There is a general lack of training in this location. It is more of a 'through you in and see if you swim' philosophy. There is a decent amount of turnover. Complications regularly arise from inexperienced sales account managers misquoting projects, and having new/inexperienced engineers working on projects beyond their ability/knowledge.
    Managers are always very busy, so it is often hard to get needed answers to questions. Plus the expectations of the company with 'promised completion dates' on projects creates fairly frequent stress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More training is generally needed for engineers, sales account managers, etc. People should not be working on things/projects that they don't understand unless they are getting all the questions figured out from some sort of mentor. This would help projects go much more smoothly, to the advantage of the clients and the Intertek workers.
