I have been working at Overstock.com full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Working at Overstock.com has really increased my skillsets. I have loved working with the people in my area and it never ceases to amaze me when something seems to be wrong... teams come together and make sure it's fixed in a quick and efficient manner.

Cons

I wish recognition was give out a bit more often than it is currently. Its hard to feel appreciated if your work is overlooked sometimes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep us headed in this upward trend. The outlook is really looking nice. I like our direction and leadership right now.

    Former Employee - Software Engineer in Salt Lake City, UT

    I worked at Overstock.com full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Large company in e-commerce. Lots of smart people to work with. Options to work in different aspects of the technology stack. Strong focus on educating the work force

    Cons

    Some leaders are quite reactionary and short sited. There seems to be un-reasonable or dis-honest expectation on delivery. Most projects are expected to be done in two weeks no matter what the project.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stand up for your convictions.

    I have been working at Overstock.com full-time

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
