Approves of CEO

I have been working at Overstock.com full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Great people, great innovations, lots of opporunity to get involved in all kinds of inter-departmental projects, entrpreneurial spirit about the place, you get out of it what you put into the job,

Cons

Lack of communication bridges across departments. The general consensus is to keep departments so defined that the only way to really know what marketing does and how it affects finance is to have worked for both facets of the company. I think some bridge positions would be useful- people with interlaced responsibilites that can be go-tos when merchandising has a questions about marketing they have a go-to person for all their questions instead of tracking down 30 different channels.

Advice to Management

Work on communcation bridges and elimnate ambiguity between departmental roles.

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

    Pros

    Company spirit, team camaraderie, nice co-workers, great break room with fun activities to de-stress, employees are valued, lots of downtime, free to listen to music/watch internet TV/movies while working in this position, easy to advance, pay for this position is decent, management was pretty good when I was there

    Cons

    Lots of downtime (this can be good and bad in my opinion), location of warehouse offices, position is very monotonous and dull, advancements only seem to be reserved for the "boss's pets"

    I have been working at Overstock.com as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent company culture. The company does not micromanage its employees. Creativity and career growth are enoucraged. Work environment is clean and very serious with maintaining employee safety.

    Cons

    Most people in the company spend way too much time sitting (and gaining weight). It would be nice to see those desks that can convert between standing and sitting positions become the standard desk.

    Advice to Management

    Although the customer services representatives are recieving wages that match the going market price an increase in salary would not hurt.
