I have been working at Overstock.com full-time (more than an year)

Pros

The CEO is great (just too bad it doesn't trickle down to the rest of management), there are some good people who work there, company values sound and look good on paper

Cons

The culture of Overstock is challenging - most of upper management is completely out of touch with reality and with the people they are supposed to be managing. The office location out by the airport is a joke, the higher ups try to make you drink the company kool-aid but deny it is what it is: a place for CS workers to sleep (both in break rooms and at their desks), and people with a high level of incompetence to excel. Developers and Merchandising groups are a constant revolving door.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The middle management is much better at their jobs than the people at the top. Motivating by fear is not a good way to conduct business. Instead of threatening people, try actually showing them you appreciate their hard work - rather than the current tactics of promoting morons just because they know someone already at the top (and who are, in reality, totally incapable of producing respectable results).
