    I worked at Maxxam Analytics full-time

    Pros

    Maxxam was a great place to work. There was a lot of opportunity, and the people are great. They do a lot of extras for the employees too - freezies on hot days, company swag, bagel days, training with snacks/lunch, and more.

    Cons

    I think in most places, people wished they were paid more. But these guys have great benefits that is actually worth quite a lot and is flexible. RRSP matching, and health care accounts are a great added value.
