    I worked at Overwatch Systems

    Pros

    Flexible hours, good pay and decent benefits. Reasonably current in Microsoft .NET and C# technologies, but lagging behind in other areas.

    Cons

    Complete lack of strategic vision, dwindling contract base, no credible business development plans to replace work being lost, over cronyism in the management ranks, and very poor and sanitized communications between executive and work force.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a strategic vision. Develop a realistic, long term business development plan that acknowledge the DoD acquisition cycles is 18-24 months; not 3-6 months. Bring in qualified, fully prepared executive team to lead company through current difficulties.
