No opinion of CEO

Pros

The staff and management are good and they keep everyone apprised. The software is good and the company has a good reputation.

Cons

Overwatch's main customer base is the military. Military spending is getting squeezed. It is not as stable as when I joined the company.

Advice to Management

Start looking towards new customer base and expand. They need more revenue streams and more contracts. They need to increase spending in research and development.

    Pros

    The salary and compensation were in line with other aviation companies. There is very little oversight at the company and much of the work can be done with flex time. The company events are tons of fun.

    Cons

    The offices at their Hunt Valley campus are sparsely populated and it is difficult to reach many people during normal hours.

    Advice to Management

    work on efficiency and eliminate the redundant positions at the company.
