No opinion of CEO

I worked at Overstock.com full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

They do promote from within, and allow you to find your niche within the company. There is a great onboarding process for new employees, and an all around good group of people that work there. You get a lot of visibility into a lot of different processes around the company, and if you are in the right meeting, on the right day, your opinion is usually listened to. There are no limitations of the cross functionality of a position.

Cons

NEPOTISM. If you are not in the IN crowd, you will wonder every day if you have a job. Lots of emotionally run processes, with a lot of protection of the wrong people. They want to 'help' you grow, as long as you do exactly as they want you to do, they leave that up to you to guess though, lots of changing minds depending on the mood. A lot of fear based management, it comes from the highest of the high, so its no wonder that it trickles down.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Overstock.com full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lot's of opportunity for lateral movement

    Cons

    There is very little recognition for work done, this includes monetary compensation.

    The leadership is incredibly reactionary and dangerous.

    Advice to Management

    Respect work life balance of your employees.
