    I have been working at Maxxam Analytics full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The company has a friendly, easy going corporate culture that's easy to fit in to. Staff are generally nice and easygoing. Huge company that is very well known in Canada, good name to have on your resume.

    Cons

    Promotions are hard to come by. Seniority is valued above all other traits, meaning people are not promoted based on their value, but based on how convenient it is for the business. Speaking of promotions, once you reach the title of "analyst" you're pretty much done in terms of growth. After analyst is a management position, and realistically those positions won't be open for 5-10 years.

    Not a place I would like to work

    Former Employee - Lab Technician in Mississauga, ON (Canada)

    I worked at Maxxam Analytics as a contractor

    Pros

    Great "stepping stone" for fresh grads and new immigrants. Multicultural. Not too bad for the permanent employees.

    Cons

    Low salary, high employee turnover rate, nepotism. Individuals with great talent and qualifications will be underutilized and difficult to reach their potential.

    Pros

    Management is available and overall friendly and accommodating.

    Cons

    Poor pay for the amount of effort put in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quality workers need to be supported. The same flat raises will not keep quality workers motivated.
