    Pros

    Many friendly people, and a good learning environment, if you are coming out of a chemistry program.

    Long commuting times, considering traffic, if coming from outside of Mississauga. Some labs can be loud, smelly, or hot, but overall not bad.

    Advice to Management

    Management has been good, very friendly, and personable, easy to talk to, and fair. Interviews are easy going and fair, in a friendly environment.

    I worked at Maxxam Analytics as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great working conditions - very busy meaning it's hard to get bored. Environment are less strict and more social than in the lab, which creates for more social interactions with your co-workers. Overall the company treats their employees with. Contract and part-timers don't get many benefits, while full-time employees do.

    Cons

    No real benefits for Contract and part-timers. It's harder to move up in the company -- most people will not receive more than a few dollars of raise throughout their time there. While being busy is great to pass time quicker, it can also be a negative as work can pile up requiring a ton of over time.

    Advice to Management

    Have a better system for increasing employee salary. Living conditions are only becoming more expensive, and that could affect employees quite a bit.
