Positive Outlook

I have been working at Maxxam Analytics full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Diverse lines of business = longevity in the market place.
Multidiciplines allow for numerous opportunities for employees to gain experience in a number of areas of analytical testing.
Very supportive of continuing training and employee development
Big supporter of new residents with overseas credentials
Diverse benefit's packages - range of benefits/options and award programs are continuously improved and expanded.
Opportunities for contract summer work for new grads and co-op's to gain valuable experience. Many are hired permanently.
Compensation is fair and appropriate to experience and marketplace comparison.
Large and focused safety program. Saftey of staff, employee families, customers and visitors is strongly supported from the top down.
Empraces multiculturism.

Cons

There are no cons that are specific to Maxxam, that would be different to any other empolyer that provides laboratory services. Demands of customers can be high and as a service provider - in order to remain successful, those customer requirements need to be met.
Some days will require additional hours/extra effort to accomplish this - however those that continuously step up, have been rewarded in some fashion and typically advance in their career quicker than those that do not.

Advice to Management

It is surprising to see negative comments by some former employee's. My personal experience has been one where I have been supported from an entry level position, through a number of promotions and positions.

    Pros

    Management is available and overall friendly and accommodating.

    Cons

    Poor pay for the amount of effort put in.

    Advice to Management

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