    Pros

    Work/life balance Opportunities to choose your schedule Opportunities to move up Good benefits Expectations are realistic re: background noise

    Cons

    Too much focus on having fun on the clock with coworkers really leaves customers hanging. You can make or exceed all your metrics, have perfect attendance, talk in the team chats when appropriate, and still be called out for not being social enough. Many leads are just too immature and don't communicate effectively. Too many "mean girls".

    Not sustainable

    Pros

    The company offers remote work.

    Cons

    The company offers a 9/80 schedule which equals every other Friday off. DON’T FALL FOR THIS! You will NEVER actually get to use this “benefit” because you will ALWAYS have so much work to do that it is IMPOSSIBLE to get it done which means that you will HAVE TO WORK ON YOUR DAYS OFF. AND YOU WILL BE FURTHER PENALIZED WHEN YOU TAKE PTO BECAUSE YOU WILL HAVE TO TAKE 9 (not 8) HOURS OF PTO FOR EACH DAY OFF EVEN THOUGH YOU WORK 12+ HOUR DAYS. Don’t even apply if you want WORK/LIFE BALANCE. And don’t let anyone sell you on the fact that it exists here.

    Pros

    They try to work hard on building a culture and knows that it is important

    Pros

    At least you are employed.

    Cons

    Co-workers used to be in the pros. so many people leaving and they cant hire fast enough. One reason people are leaving is Overstock is proving how little they care about their devs and QA by the minuscule pay raises they are given and a token bonus and maybe (if you are in the right pay grade) some RSUs. the pay raises they are giving dont even start to bring people up to where the industry is currently. They also will only let you work remote in 20 states. Not a huge deal, but petty if you ask me. So, they work you till you want to drop because so many are leaving, give the execs huge bonuses, and show the employees they don't care. Im currently looking for other companies to work for. Ones that care.
