    I have been working at MA Laboratories full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Most of the people working at Ma Labs are friendly, nice and trustworthy. There are a few employees who really stand out and the ones who excel in this company are the employees who try hard to make a difference. Work life balance is fantastic and management is understanding of individual situations.

    There are a lot of changing being made in Ma Labs. We are seeing more engagement activities being rolled out, we are looking at different avenues and partnership in the business side, and we are looking to expand in our market/business (which makes Ma Labs a continuously growing company).

    Cons

    Every company has their limitations and Ma Labs is not any different in that aspect. Some managers are more receptive than others but this happens in every company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and look into administering new training for managers/departments!

    I worked at MA Laboratories full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    People can be friendly and the managers are very lenient. Ideal for college students looking for a minimum wage job with flexible hours.

    Cons

    Very little room for growth. Most people are satisfied with minimum wage and never push themselves to become recognized. Most people are speaking mandarin and talking behind your back if you can't understand. Females in sales and HR gossip and give inappropriate nicknames. Sales is split in half due to constant conflict with the branch manager. Sales constantly complain about how they struggle to make sales and the low commission rate and vacation time. Warehouse workers are given 30 hours of paid vacation per year. Many elderly were

    Pros

    You are in charge of your own success - there is no micro managing or babysitting - management instills trust in the employees to succeed and take care of your business. That doesn't go to say there isn't a TON of support! From colleagues, managers, cross-departmental, up to the execs - everyone makes themselves readily available to help. My favorite thing - it's a flat hierarchy without the typical corporate politics.

    The transparency and flow of information from top management makes you feel involved and valued. There isn't any hidden agenda and that can be felt from the start of the first interview. Everyone is open, down to earth, and up front about what's going on. This really makes you feel like company decisions are being made for the welfare of the employees.

    The company values the employees - there's an employee appreciation event monthly, weekly trainings to enhance knowledge and catered breakfast/brunches almost on a weekly basis! There is definitely an investment in your success as an employee here.

    Cons

    Nothing really to be honest - it's pretty flexible here and department heads will work with you for any one-off accommodations or requests if need be.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    It's a lot of work, teams are usually strapped for resources and under pressure to deliver on strict timelines leading to high stress and long hours at certain times during the year.
