eSolutions Project Manager (Current Employee), Carlsbad, CAApril 8, 2014
Pros: teamwork
Cons: favoritism
On a day to day basis I support our field sales as the back end support for the East territory. I have to work on my toes to fix problems quickly, which I really enjoy but the remaining parts of the day involve tedious, mundane tasks. I would love to work more directly with customers instead of being glued to my phone/computer staring at excel spreadsheets.

Pros: diversity
Cons: culture of fear
You can climb all the way up the ladder at Life Tech, and fast but the whole company is built on sand and will wash away with so many other of its ilk.

Get a job that is established on the rock of truth. You might have to swallow your pride and forfiet so much of what you thought was important but it will stand when these paper mache bohemoths tatter and dissolve.
