Pros

One of the best things about Overwatch Systems is they are very flexible with work schedules. Taking time off is fairly easy and engineers do not always need to report when they will be out.

Cons

There is no way for engineers to work remotely. This makes life challenging when working loads of overtime. Projects tend to end at Christmas time, so that is when the engineers are working the most overtime.

Advice to Management

Allow developers to log in to the network more easily so that they can work from home sometimes. Pay and benefits need to be improved now that additional compensation is not an option.

    Pros

    Cool projects and well-run business- never any time to get bored

    Cons

    can be difficult to figure out who does what at first, but probably no more so than anywhere else

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work- good place to be, for the most part

    Pros

    Close to home. Great people working here and I have formed lots of great relationships. Salary and benefits are good. Good job security. Interesting work.

    Cons

    Development environment is lagging by several years - mostly because of the glacial pace of the DoD. Working in a closed development environment is very constraining. Excessive process.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time studying what the current state of technology is and provide more vision, direction and leadership. It would be nice to have a Steve Jobs calling the shots.
