    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to know what's wrong with your company talk to the people at the bottom of the chain. Quit laying off valuable employees in the place of incompetent managers. Try to treat your employees like they mean something instead of constantly berating us. We are not the problem.

    I have been working at Life Technologies as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    Located in Carlsbad, San Diego, Beautiful weather. Intelligent people to work for and with. Strong ideas and open minded. Very diverse and management is understanding.

    Cons

    Some of the help desk Support is out source and majority are contractors. The company average is size; many sites around the country but not the same as the head quarters. Funds are limited on projects and there is a delay.
