Whoa! What a gross generalization. I worked for an "Amalgamated
Conglomerate" (also in San Diego) for 10 years. The last five
were filled with constant downsizing and reorganizing. Those of
us who "survived" did so by doing high-quality work, being innovative,
and continually improving our skills. It was an invaluable experience,
and I think I'd be suited for any size of company because of it.
