    I worked at Overstock.com full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very interesting technical challenges.
    Good pay but the benefits are not on-par with other companies of the same size.

    Cons

    There had been a constant tech brain drain during 2013 and the new hires are not bumping up the IQ.

    Advice to Management

    There were a lot cynicism and distrust floating around. It might be a good a good idea to work on team morale and hire more capable tech management.

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

    Pros

    Real and tangible opportunities for growth that are not just hot air. They pay well and the work environment is very diverse and accepting. I have worked at other call centers and nothing compares to it. I think what I like best is how management is continually working to improve job satisfaction and benefits. They just did a complete overhaul to our benefits and it was amazing.

    Cons

    Your schedule changes according to call volume and that can be incredibly annoying.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing! I love how customer and employee centric the company is.
