Productive and helpful place
Lab Technician (Current Employee), Mississauga, ONOctober 1, 2013
Very helpful place to work on it, i learned a lot of new things from this company, the hardest part of my job was only the beginning which i past it after one month. The co-workers are very friendly and nice persons. The most enjoyable part of the job is when the supervisor or manager are coming to ask you what's going on and to talk about the job, to discuss with you a new method or to ask you about new thinks which you could suggest

A good workplace to start a new career
LabTech (Former Employee), Mississauga, ONSeptember 17, 2015
Pros: The worker community
Cons: Low pay
I started from an entry level position and was fortunate enough to move up the laboratory "ladder".

The working team members of my area meshed well and having work there for more than 10 years, great working relationships developed.

This was a very fast paced workplace and you were expected to keep up.

good IT team
Computer systems specialist (Current Employee), CalgaryJuly 7, 2015
I'm enjoying to work at Maxxam analytics. A typical day at work starts with a cup of coffee... and 10 telephone calls. First thing which I learned at Maxxam: "If it's working don't touch it " or "before you do change something make sure you don't break it". My manager is the best manager which I had during of my all career.

Avoid This Company
Laboratory Technician (Current Employee), Edmonton, ABOctober 16, 2015
Pros: Free coffee
Cons: Boring, Repetitive, No advancement
Supervisor was good however job was repetitive and boring. There is very little opportunity for advancement. Will make you do work above your pay grade and not pay you. The skills used for the job are something anyone can do, no need to go to university for them. I regret working here.
