    Great starting point

    Laboratory Technician (Former Employee) Burnaby, BC (Canada)

    ProsFriendly environment and very supportive staff. Superiors are not shy in training subordinate if great interest is visible.

    ConsPoor hours. Long hours: no work-life balance

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement have to let system break sometimes to remedy the real problem, instead of patch things up on the spot. e.g., adding significant hours of over time. There should be a better coordination between sales group and laboratory group.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    ProsIf you are looking for a company with lots of diverse opportunity for career growth, then this is the right company for you.

    ConsIt appears to me that promotion from within is based on if you have a close friendship with your supervisor.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you are a hard worker but not socially close with your supervisor, you may be over looked for promotion, which should not be the case. Promotion should be based on the quality of work delivered.

    Opportunity

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Edmonton, AB (Canada)

    ProsMaxxam offers a lot to it's employees, more and more as it grows at a rapid pace. Great benefit packages, employee events (breakfats, BBQ's, free ice cream), nice facilities, free coffee rewards program, employee assistance program. There are a lot of jobs opening as we expand and Maxxam likes to promote from within. Definitely gives you an opportunity to try different positions. In my experience here I have been given the freedom to try many different things which has been an amazing learning experience.

    ConsWhile Maxxam's salary structure reflects competitve wages within the analytical testing industry, they are fairly low, resulting in turnover. The cons would really depend on your specific role.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAs you grow continue to offer employees advancement and benefit opportunities to keep them growing with you.
