Improving culture, but concerns about long-term prospects of the Brand

Director of Marketing (Former Employee) Salt Lake City, UT

Pros-Strong work/life balance
-Opportunity for growth - prove that you can own & grow the business and doors will open up for you (up to the director level).
-Great location, very attractive for locals and people who like the outdoors

Cons-No structured bonus program
-No perks - very cut and dry
-Hit-and-miss with talent and leadership at the company
-Brand is very ambiguous, with Amazon dominating online retail, where does Overstock fit? Company still trying to figure this out

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to discover the value prop of the company and stick to a strategy. Focus on the core business and less on distractions that someone thinks can be a home run.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
