    Former Employee - Software Architect in Salt Lake City, UT

    I worked at Overstock.com full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very interesting technical challenges.
    Good pay but the benefits are not on-par with other companies of the same size.

    Cons

    There had been a constant tech brain drain during 2013 and the new hires are not bumping up the IQ.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There were a lot cynicism and distrust floating around. It might be a good a good idea to work on team morale and hire more capable tech management.

    Current Employee - Team Lead in West Valley City, UT
    Current Employee - Team Lead in West Valley City, UT

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

    Pros

    There is no glass ceiling. Diversity is encouraged. Excellence is rewarded. While some areas of the company have obvious requirements for a specific role (you should have a law degree to be a lawyer) you can move very far simply by being a motivated, business-savvy person. General quality of life is very good.

    Cons

    Everyone is really friendly and teams intermingle. It can lead to or at least give the appearance of nepotism. If you know the right person and you've developed a relationship with them and they are able to help you move up, how is that any different than networking. I don't think unqualified people are moving up. But I do feel it impacts the decisions when you are deciding which of a couple people you're going to take a chance on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just keep doing what you're doing. I've found that people's attitudes are what make their experience at Overstock.com a positive one or a negative one.
