Pros

Excellent company culture. The company does not micromanage its employees. Creativity and career growth are enoucraged. Work environment is clean and very serious with maintaining employee safety.

Cons

Most people in the company spend way too much time sitting (and gaining weight). It would be nice to see those desks that can convert between standing and sitting positions become the standard desk.

Advice to Management

Although the customer services representatives are recieving wages that match the going market price an increase in salary would not hurt.

    Pros

    - One of the few companies in Salt lake that's in retail
    - Labor force is cheap.

    Cons

    - Discriminatory promotion policy. Career growth requires you to be mormon.
    - Management team is fairly incompetent, Although recent senior management hires have been impressive.

    Advice to Management

    Stop creating an artificial glass wall by promoting everyone to director. Have tangible metrics to measure performance. Management by hearsay is not a viable management strategy. Hire a few innovators and have faith in their abilities.

    Pros

    Great benefits and really good people. They love to promote from within which is a huge plus. They recognize hard workers and punish lazy workers which is ideal for people who come in and work hard everyday. Overstock works hard to make their culture a diverse and accepting one.

    Cons

    Being a retailer and replying heavily on Black Friday and Cyber Monday means you don’t get much of a thanksgiving break.
