    "Doing the right thing" is not as important as your Manager's ego

    Principal Software Engineer (Former Employee)
    Austin, TX

    I worked at Overwatch Systems


    Pros: Getting paid for hours over 40 and weekly until 2011 The majority of the people are good to work… Cons: Employees are not empowered to make decisions Managers only look out for themselves and will throw employees under the bus They have laid off some really… Advice to Senior Management: Start listening to the employees and not the filtered version of management, the ones that are still managers either have no history with the company… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
