I have been working at Overstock.com full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Overstock combines the fun and excitement of a start up without the long hours and worry of 'will they be around next month'.
- Work/life balance is great
- Plenty of opportunities to grow your career
- Flex hours
- Plenty of educational opportunities
- Raises bases on performance
- Team based culture, big egos don't last long here

Cons

- E-retail is seasonal, things get a bit chaotic going in Q4
- A lot of projects aren't well defined and require IT to flush out the details to get it across the line.
- The CEO, you love him or hate him

    I worked at Overstock.com full-time for 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.
