No reward for extra work

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Austin, TX

I have been working at Overwatch Systems

ProsTuition reimbursement is way above industry standard. I love not being in a cube. Most of the coworkers are great.

ConsDon't ever sign up for task lead/software lead/CAL positions. You'll take on a bunch more responsibility, more stress, and more overtime. Think you'll be rewarded come PMP time? Think again. And now that OT is uncompensated you'll feel like an even bigger sucker. I'm probably not the only SWE checking out dice at work these days. The matrix organization is awful.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt's time to let product line go. Every (or almost every) product is releasing off its own main now anyways.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
