    I have been working at Overwatch Systems full-time

    Pros

    Company has made it through a tough period in the DoD space and is making some positive strides toward steadying the business. Great location, environment, management has made a ton of improvements for the workforce (relaxed atmosphere, ping pong/foosball, activities, relaxed dress code).

    Cons

    Recovering from downturn has seen a lot of good engineers head for the door.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to engage the workforce in new developments in the business area, give them something to look forward to.

    Current Employee - Software Engineer in Austin, TX

    I have been working at Overwatch Systems full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The flexible time is really nice (Core hours are 10 to 3 Monday thru Thursday), Nice 2 person offices, Decent pay: (Close to the Average), Fun and challenging projects.

    Cons

    Generally, cannot work from home (sometimes with Managers permission).
    While pay is average, for most employees, it is low for the higher performers.
    Due to the nature of our work, there may be long stretches of "bug fixing" which can reduce the morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work harder to recognize and keep the higher performers.
