      Pros

      Bonus, Pension, Opportunity to travel to other locations.

      Cons

      Lack of growth opportunity... As soon as Intertek aquired the business, the opportunity for progression ceased, especially since Intertek decided the business unit didnt fit with their model, even though I had brought in three of the largest single projects that the division had even had (and prestigious). There was too much fighting to invoice ahead of work being done, and then being told we are not making enough money the next month, when in fact forward invoicing was causing the problems.... Became bigger issues when forward invoicing for work being performed in the next financial year.

      Great stepping stone paired with a dreadful management team

      Pros

      Lots to learn, a great stepping stone into the world of regulatory testing Loved my co-workers Exposed to innovative products

      Cons

      Management was practically brain-dead during my employment. Bad decisions after bad decisions took everything personally and displayed a continued poor judgement. The knowledge and work ethic retained by employees was not leveraged into developing them for the next milestone towards their career growth within the business. HR consisted of one woman and she was detrimental in the way she dealt with internal affairs. Power hungry salesman clearly did not know how to operate/manage all aspects of an organization as the lab was repeatedly struggling.
