    I worked at Maxxam Analytics (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Some departments have a good atmosphere by kind people.
    - BBQ during summer.

    Cons

    - Mismanagement of human resources and talent selection. They often fire people after 2 or 3 weeks. That is, they really have no idea what kind of personality or worker they are looking for and they prefer to rehearse each week rather than develop talent. DO NOT LEAVE ANY OTHER JOB FOR GOING TO THIS COMPANY.

    - High Staff Turnover
    - Poor Salary.
    - A stressful atmosphere in the pre-processing department.
    - Overtime every day.
    - There is no opportunity for growth. The company is controlled by a group of people from a specific origin. If you do not like them, nothing will change for you.

    Advice to Management

    - Try to apply more human policies inside the lab department and to develop talent.
    - The supervisors should take a lot of courses, how to treat people, how to manage the time, how to manage the talent, etc..
