Opportunities for Professional Growth and Enrichment

I have been working at Overstock.com

Pros

I have always been impressed with Overstock.com's dedication to enrich their associates through training and learning opportunities. As a memeber of the HR team, I was given the chance to grow my knowledge of HR practices and policies by going through the PHR certification process. Overstock.com was behind me every step of the way! They gave monetary support by covering the test and training program fees, and they gave support by allowing our group to meet and study as often as we could.
I'm happy to report that all three associates who took the test achieved PHR certification. Overstock.com continues their support by sending us to conferences and training throughout the year that will allow us to keep our certification active.

    Pros

    There is a truly diverse array of people working there, and most of the people you interact with on a daily basis will be friendly. There is also a huge emphasis on expanding knowledge, not only of the company, but of general business practices/software. Classes for any course offered by the training department are open to every person within the company, and schedules are accommodated to the times the classes are offered tin an effort to ensure attendance.

    Cons

    There is a tendency for abrupt terminations due to department micromanagement and personal bias of senior management/executives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't make decisions regarding promotion/termination based on emotion. Promote Business Ethics.

    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.
