    I have been working at Maxxam Analytics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Strong company, good values. Good benefit plan with Day of Caring programs and RRSP and DPSP options. Employee recognition platforms and appreciation events.

    Cons

    Very poor management at supervisor level and lack of communication from senior management. Outdated SOP's and processes make daily tasks very tedious. No room to grow within the company, and preference is hiring outside temps on short term contracts instead of promoting from within.

    Advice to Management

    Closely review employee morale to identify issues with high turnover. Focus on lack of leadership at supervisory levels.

    Pros

    Provides opportunities to
    Learn particular skill sets, eligible for overtime, flexible work hours, good job to break into industry coming out of school

    Cons

    Limited room for advancement, average wage below industry standard, management is not proactive - mainly reactionary to staff needs, life balance can be an issue at times

    Advice to Management

    Need to find the time to hear and address staff needs. Treat them like your clients.

    Pros

    Coworkers are friendly and usually quite helpful. In addition there are decent opportunities to learn and gain experience in a laboratory environment.

    Cons

    Heavy workload, many hours of overtime ( expected not requested), lack of organisation in some departments, pay/ compensation should be higher for the type of work required.

    Pros

    Lots of learning in the few couple of years of working. Great learning environment. Free hot coffee in the lunch area. Lots of interaction with people. If you're lucky you might get a chance to get a full-time position with the company. Lots of positions available once you're in the company.

    Cons

    Low pay, lots of repetitive work. A lot of heavy lifting coolers. Hand cramps from repetitive signing Chain of Custodies. Benefits don't start until 12 months after contract. Managers will try anything to no give overtime. Long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize your employees more. Payroll is almost as bad a minimum wage.
