I worked at Overstock.com full-time

Pros

Good technical environment, smart folks around you. Processes do not get in the way of getting work done.

Cons

Development leads do not do much development, Title should really be Development Manager as an important responsibility is managing people. (think smart eccentric people).
Marketing and Product Management teams suck.

    I worked at Overstock.com full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Executive Visibility - in the hallways and in meetings. Great opportunity to get to know them and what they want.
    Collaboration - open seating and open doors, opened many opportunities to work together.
    Family fun - Lagoon day is an employee favorite and special treat.

    Cons

    Advancement opportunities are undefined, delayed and often dissolve into thin air without explanation.
    Positions descriptions were nebulous and subject to territorial executives' every whim and personal like/dislike.
    Leader promises (no - leader commitments) were more times than not a placebo to competitive weaknesses

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perform more skip level type meetings or front line meetings to get a better sense of morale and engagement.
