Highest percent of unhappy people

Marketing (Former Employee)

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

ProsThe company has a strong customer focus. It is interesting in the range of services and the variety of markets they service.

ConsEmployees treated like dirt.
Very high turnover rate.
Management are, for the lack of a better word, mean.
Absolutely NO life work balance. They use the excuse of being global to expect you to answer calls and emails any time on the day or night.
People work long days and then are expected to do more work at home.

Advice to Senior ManagementHow can you be effective with such a high turnover rate? Start to treat people well and there wont be a line of people running to leave to UL

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
