    Pros

    There are some smart people and advanced technology. If you are so inclined, you can really learn a lot working here.

    Cons

    It seems like incompetance is rewarded here. There are a couple very incompetant and stupid people here in high positions that just hang around and make life difficult for everyone else. Contract employees are extremely underpaid and undertitled. Many contract employees have degrees from UCSD and other schools of equal quality, who are titled Electro-Mechanical Assembler 1 and are paid $16 per hour - ridiculous!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Moving your operations to Singapore is not going to save you any money when can you get college graduates in San Diego to work for $16 per hour.
