    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at MAXXAM full-time

    Pros

    High volume and fast paced environment forces you to learn fast. Excellent multi-taskers will thrive and get valuable experience doing a variety of tasks. Challenging workplace where there is no time to get bored.

    Cons

    Although a great place to learn and develop skills, overtime top performers burn out. Motivation drops as more and more duties are given with little compensation or recognition.

    Advice to Management

    Management should make it a goal to strike a better balance between satisfying client needs and maintaining happy employees. Employees particularly in departments that are heavy on manual labour rather than machines should develop work schedules that don't burn out staff, especially high performers. Recognize staff that go above and beyond both in words and in action.
