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

Pros

Overstock combines the fun and excitement of a start up without the long hours and worry of 'will they be around next month'.
- Work/life balance is great
- Plenty of opportunities to grow your career
- Flex hours
- Plenty of educational opportunities
- Raises bases on performance
- Team based culture, big egos don't last long here

Cons

- E-retail is seasonal, things get a bit chaotic going in Q4
- A lot of projects aren't well defined and require IT to flush out the details to get it across the line.
- The CEO, you love him or hate him

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Overstock.com full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of work to do.
    Nice building (corporate).

    Cons

    Pet projects seem to be given higher priority than mission critical projects. Management politics are a bit too much. Management is just fine with cutting corners to meet deadlines rather than producing something of quality. The IT department is large, and there is not much consistency across teams. Employees are shuffled around constantly.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees.

    I have been working at Overstock.com full-time

    Pros

    Flexible Schedule. Good Pay. Paid Vacation.

    Cons

    Benefits degrading. Bonus are a mirage. Political Mess. No Work/Life Balance.

    Advice to Management

    More people need to be hired to balance out workload. Hire or train managers so that there is some experience in those positions. The culture of promoting from within has resulted in the blind leading the blind.
