    I worked at Oversee.net full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Free lunch Fridays, flexible office hours, there are a bunch of smart and fun people working there, downtown LA is pretty solid

    Cons

    There is a serious problem in this organization and it starts at the top. Management is too busy worrying about keeping the board at bay with near term, short-sided solutions and will dismantle pieces of the business (selling business units, mass layoffs, changes to health and 401k, etc) at the drop of a hat to hit budgets and keep their jobs.

    Multiple GMs have come and gone, many within months of starting and seeing what Oversee is all about. Additionally, lots of the GM positions have not been filled for over a year so there's no day-to-day leadership, accountability or organization within the business units.

    Since there is no real leadership top down and within each business vertical, they are constantly juggling priorities and goals and those priorities change dramatically on a dime.

    The turnover rate at this company is unbelievable. All ROI driven employees leave when they realize that no matter how good they are doing they are going to be lumped in with their vertical unit's performance, and since every single unit at Oversee has been free-falling the past several years, nobody gets their full bonus potential. Couple that with the fact that they never give people raises or title increases, and you get high turnover.

    They pride themselves on being a technology company but that's their biggest weakness. They have antiquated business models on antiquated technology and are the slowest moving company from a development standpoint I have ever worked with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My message is to Oversee's board: replace all Senior Executives within the organization to have a shot at innovating and evolving to become relevant once again. Otherwise, keep on spinning your wheels to save what you have which has quickly dwindled down to nothing.

    Pros

    The vast majority of co-workers were smart, kind and motivated. There was a nice mix of really experienced, long-serving colleagues, with less experienced, newer ones. Great downtown offices and location.

    Cons

    Disparate, un-related business units that distracted executive management, who enabled poor, dysfunctional and opaque decision-making, and seemed more motivated to preserve their jobs than collaborate with hands-on employees to evolve a successful business model.

    Pros

    free lunch fridays and a handful of smart, motivated people

    Cons

    These leaders are truly terrible; CEO is confused; GMs are in over their head and don't know how to run businesses; the company has no intellectual property and does not invest in marketing tools to run operations properly. The company is being ripped apart to be sold or fold - do not join.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management doesn't listen or tell the truth to employees. Trust is earned through vision and leadership. The management at this company has neither.

    Pros

    Working along side good people, in a cool work environment (360 views, recreational room)...free lunch on Fridays. Some training opportunities.

    Cons

    The company as a whole seems to be a sinking ship. Management does not have a glue on how to lead and they should learn how to put out products that generate revenue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to create clear career paths for employees

    I worked at Oversee.net full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I spent many years working in this company, and the company environment let employees to learn and grow in their own speed.

    You can quickly test new ideas and actually measure the business impact. Managers are very supportive and they will greatly appreciate your talent and work.

    People in the company are very professional at what they do, but also very nice and friendly. And there are small number of individuals who seems to know about everything.

    So, even if google fails you, you can get your answers from those individuals.

    Cons

    Oversee.net logo is outdated.
    There are many projects but not enough people for adequate support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Regularly communicate to employees about business.

    Pros

    I am amazed by the talent here. We have hardworking and talented people on the tech team. I am part of the tech team, and also have a good relationship with the business. I've read the other reviews, and there are challenges, but to me that is a good thing. There's no point in working somewhere without challenges. What value can you bring if there are no challenges?

    Cons

    Like most places, there are some with less than positive attitudes, but the leadership is doing their best to make it a good place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on long term goals, and explain how the goals will be achieved.
