    I worked at Overstock.com full-time (more than an 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

    Big company with small company feel, plenty of opportunity for people who can generate positive results, great people to work with, fun working environment, great work life balance

    Cons

    Company experiences some growing pains from time to time, PTO policy not very competitive, still figuring out a lot of processes and structure

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate a consistent, long-term strategic vision throughout the company.
