    Pros

    Good use of technology in IT department.

    Cons

    They hire people throughout year only to let go in Jan every year. I am not sure what management is planning for future. Few of the projects were scrapped and couple of major lay offs in 2011-2012.

    Pros

    I used to love my job and could not think of a better place to work. I feel Patrick Byrne is an awesome CEO and appreciate how he tackles even the most controversial issues (inside and outside Overstock.com)

    Cons

    I have worked at Overstock.com for almost 4 years now. Every year I keep hoping for a cost of living pay increase at least. But, I don't get one and, I am not the only one. I was recently told in my yearly appraisal review, once you hit a certain pay amount in customer service, there will be no more pay increases, no matter how long you work here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People need pay increases every year due to the cost of living going up. I know a lot of our awesome employees that have found other work, because they need to make more money. I just wish someone would have told me (4 years ago), that no one will ever make more than $13.00 an hour, as a customer service agent, no matter how long you work at Overstock.com. I feel I have wasted 4 years of my life now that I will never get back.
