Was a great place to work before the Textron buyout.

Principal Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Austin, TX

I have been working at Overwatch Systems full-time for more than 8 years

ProsMoney's good if you can get a security clearance. Austin is a nice place to live. Still a few seasoned pros around you can learn from.

ConsConstantly changing direction at the whim of Army program management. No job security at all (60 % of Austin employees have been laid off in the last couple of years). They want to be a software service company for the government rather than product developers.

Advice to Senior ManagementLook for other opportunities. You're a pretty good bunch of guys but if your bosses at Textron won't allow you to keep promises to your employees you will rapidly lose credibility.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
