    Former Employee - Director of Marketing in Salt Lake City, UT
    Former Employee - Director of Marketing in Salt Lake City, UT

    I worked at Overstock.com full-time (more than a year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Need 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.

    Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Salt Lake City, UT

    I have been working at Overstock.com full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    A lot of very smart people in development. Technology is fairly current and fun to work with.

    Cons

    Upper management make decisions based on whims. Started out with 10 good ideas for the year. Now we are trying to manage 20+. They do not stay on task when it comes to goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    QUIT!!! We need new management. We need to stick to our decisions and not try to throw the whole kitchen sink when we already failed last year.
