    Current Employee - Poorly Managed Company in Salt Lake City, UT

    I have been working at Overstock.com

    Pros

    It can pay well, depends
    Good benefits
    Probably a good job at the warehouse or for customer service reps

    Cons

    Terrible management (some bright spots, but most leaders don't know anything about the departments they are trying to manage)
    Textbook bad business practices - reorganizations constantly. You might be in a different job in 6 months that you don't want. Always a new emphasis on what is "important" - every few months it changes
    They can't figure out how to make money. This is a problem eventually!!
    No communication from above, if you are a mind-reader that would help you.
    Promotions, lay offs, etc are all very political, not based on merit.
    Obsession with competing with Amazon instead of coming up with their own ideas and strategies.
    Some of the executives don't work nearly as hard as the people they manage, which is demoralizing.
    There is a lot of fear - nobody wants to make a decision.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have respect for experience, make sure people who are leading departments know something about the department they are leading. Unstability breeds fear, and fear isn't good in the workplace.
