Shipper Reciver

Analyst I (Current Employee)
Edmonton, AB (Canada)

I have been working at Maxxam Analytics as a contractor for more than 3 years

ProsIf you are looking for a company with lots of diverse opportunity for career growth, then this is the right company for you.

ConsIt appears to me that promotion from within is based on if you have a close friendship with your supervisor.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you are a hard worker but not socially close with your supervisor, you may be over looked for promotion, which should not be the case. Promotion should be based on the quality of work delivered.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Decent job with poor wage

Project Manager (Former Employee)
Edmonton, AB (Canada)

I worked at Maxxam Analytics full-time for more than 5 years

ProsA helpful and supportive work environment. Always being encouraged to learn more or have the opportunity to grow within the position. Free lunches and training seminars. Benefits and vacation pay.

ConsVery low pay in comparison with other companies and positions on the same level. High turn around of staff.

Advice to Senior ManagementI worked at Maxxam Analytics for over five years. My pay rate mostly remained the same and I left for that reason, as have most of my former co-workers. Maxxam needs to pay an adequate competitive wage to keep long term employees.
