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

Pros

Interesting technology - the company is willing to invest in cutting edge stuff so you get to play with some really neat ecommerce solutions and tools. Smart coworkers - there are a lot of brilliant people at the company. You will have to weed through a few people just coasting along but most people there are working hard and know what they are doing. Resume builder - its an impressive company to have on your resume if you want to work in IT, ecommerce, software dev, etc.

Cons

Pay - pay was a bit of a joke. I started out at a very low wage, then with a reorg was given a VERY large pay increase (40% or so). It seemed random and wasnt quite enough to keep me but was appreciated. There were MBA grads coming in at <35k a year. Leadership focus - there are (were) some great leaders and they could motivate and bring the team together, however it seemed like there was an overall lack of vision and direction. What vision there was was not always clearly articulated.

    Pros

    Overstock.com treats you like an adult. They understand that people make mistakes and deal with that professionally and develop people to become better employees. Thus making the whole company better.

    Cons

    At Old Mill location, no cafeteria or few eating places for lunch. Parking is a joke and could be improved (first come first serve would be better than divvying out passes in no order)

    Advice to Management

    A few minor tweaks and this company could be SUPER-DOOPER Excellent!
