    I worked at MA Laboratories full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Cant really think of any. There are few nice coworkers. Working environment is ok. That's about it. Casual dress code is nice.

    Cons

    Not enough pto. Not flexible in working hours. Always get deducted pay because you are few minutes late and they won't let you make up that few minutes.
    Bad commission structures. You make no commission unless you are a million dollars sales. Spiffs get ripped off by employer and product managers. Manufactures pay $1 but company only gives you $0.25. Don't waste your time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees. Let them make money too. Working parents with young children at home need flexible working hours.

    If I have a zero star, I will give it out without a single thought

    Cons

    Managers are playing politics, it makes sales difficult to get business, especially credit manager CZ. There is no rules for credit policies

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire the human resources dept and all the 10+ years managers, so that it attracts new fresh blood to move Malabs to the next century.
