    I have been working at Overstock.com full-time

    Pros

    It's a fast-paced, energized, open environment, filled with some of the smartest, most passionate people I've ever met. Considering the overall size of the company, the organization is relatively flat; if you have an innovative idea you want to pursue, this is the place to make it happen. I have never been in such a soul-filled, energized, exciting environment.

    Cons

    There are so many amazing ideas, but not enough hours and/or developers to pursue them all at the same time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create an overarching project priority list, and communicate this throughout the company (especially when priorities change).
