Former Employee - Information Technology in Salt Lake City, UT

I worked at Overstock.com full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Occasionally they will spring for a pizza party or similar lunch. To compensate for 60 hour weeks.

Cons

Where is the long term strategic planning to match up with day to day operations? This place is always changing, there is a real lack of fire prevention activities.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Lay off the 'social conscience' stuff as it creates a hostile work environment, regardless of the "it's for a good cause' aspect.

    Pros

    Table Tennis at SLC headquarters. A very large friendly team, fun games and prizes, excellent training, company ethics, great brand reputation, great customers, upper management was supportive, encouraging and available, CEO, Patrick Byrne is cool and inspiring. He threw a large party for us, good pay, and great work environment.

    Cons

    The location in Salt Lake City is quite bland, very strict and timely regarding clocking in and out for breaks and such. You spend a lot of time with your co workers so I remember clashing with one of supervisors and it led to me quitting the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management is doing great. Thanks for making it a safe, healthy and prosperous environment.
