    Pros

    Patrick Byrne! I have a great deal of respect and admiration for the man. Great management team Awesome people. Excellent Business model Fun, dynamic environment.

    Cons

    I have received some recruiting calls and it is a little disheartening to find out I am underpaid by 30-50% compared to other companies out there.

    Advice to Management

    Keep moving! I am convinced that my only "con" will be resolved if we keep growing the way we did this year! Besides, I LOVE being part of the group that is sticking it to the Wall Street idiots!

    Pros

    Great people, everybody is down to earth, great benefits, excellent opportunities for advancement, great atmosphere, good pay.

    Cons

    Processes change a lot and sometimes we will get a call about the issue before we are notified of the updated information from the company. Have to work weekends (not a big deal at all but would prefer for us to be closed every weekend :) )

    Advice to Management

    More thorough training for the new employees. Relay new updates to company before they take place. Put everybody through training again once a year to refresh our mind. Employees should be offered promotions based on the quality of the work they currently do. We should not be judged on who we know and how good of a recomendation a supervisor gives us. It seems as though there is a lot of favoring for people who are more popular. Which is very shocking considering how good all of the other aspects of this company are. I know people who moved up very quickly and only did a fair job in their previous position before the promotion (coincidentally they are very popular here). I always got praised on how excellent my work was, yet it was quite a fight to move up. Other leads do a not so good job and still hold their position somehow.


  3. OSTK is a great place to work.

    Pros

    The employees are hard working and good people. Management rewards employees based on merit. I like working with my colleagues.

    Cons

    The company should focus on growing the business as much as it can, while making sure that it is profitable.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to hold stand-ups to provide information to the company. Consider holding them in smaller groups to encourage more questions.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere to work in. Love the way Patrick is very personable and easy to approach. Most CEO are not like him.

    Cons

    I dont think that the pay is equal for the job descriptions.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the way the pay is done. It would be nice to have everyone on an equal pay scale for the job they are doing.

    Pros

    The Company tries very hard to insure that everyone feels like part of the OVerstock.com family. they try very hard to make idividual workers feel empowered to get there job done and insure that the best result for the company and the customer. They also have an award winning team in customer service that they show quite a bit of praise for on a regular basis.

    Cons

    there are some occasional situations where people may get favored over others because of who they know well or who they are related to. for as good at intercompany comunication it could be even better with the right systems in place.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing such a good job. any complaints I have will probably be fixed on there own with out me even filling this out or are to be expected in any company

    Pros

    Overstock is a very employee friendly company. Their benefits and salary are awesome. There is so muc opportunity for growth and career advancement. The benefits are very good as well.

    Cons

    There are only a couple downfalls. It's very hard to get your scheduled shift changed permanently. The flexibility of scheduling is a little sketchy at times.

    Advice to Management

    I would say make scheduling just a little more flexible.
