Pros

A positive enviroment, a great potential for career growth, fair compensation, a diversity of projects which keeps the job interesting.

Cons

There needs to be a better deal on overstock products for employees. There needs to be better communication about changes within the company.

Advice to Management

There needs to be better communication about significant changes within the company. Executives and upper management need to better respect others' time with respect to meetings. Cancelling, rescheduling, and not attending meetings on a regular basis is very frustrating when their input is needed to complete a task.

    Pros

    Very good about giving time off, even if there is no PTO available. The people who do regular functions for the company are fun to work with and very competent in their work.

    Cons

    Upper management wants it to be the best company to work for, but a lot of things will have to change before that happens. Extreme culture of nepotism and cronyism. Many cases of "failing up"; employees performing so poorly that they are moved up because no one wants to work with them, consequently, Overstock has very, very poor management. If you are educated, smart or hardworking, and want to advance in a career, avoid Overstock.com like cancer. Unless you are good friends with management, you'll never move up or get paid an appropriate wage. I could write a 1000 page book on what's wrong with this company. It goes without saying, this company will never even make the top 100 companies to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Management at Overstock has a reputation and culture of not taking advice from subordinates. When they say they will, it's all lip service.
