Pros

They do promote from within, and allow you to find your niche within the company. There is a great onboarding process for new employees, and an all around good group of people that work there. You get a lot of visibility into a lot of different processes around the company, and if you are in the right meeting, on the right day, your opinion is usually listened to. There are no limitations of the cross functionality of a position.

Cons

NEPOTISM. If you are not in the IN crowd, you will wonder every day if you have a job. Lots of emotionally run processes, with a lot of protection of the wrong people. They want to 'help' you grow, as long as you do exactly as they want you to do, they leave that up to you to guess though, lots of changing minds depending on the mood. A lot of fear based management, it comes from the highest of the high, so its no wonder that it trickles down.

    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
