      Pros

      Some solid benefits and a good work life balance. Overstock does great at mentoring developers and turning them into all stars.

      Cons

      Not so great at keeping the talent they fostered once the devs are ready for more senior roles. People struggle to get paid their worth once they qualify for more senior positions and find jobs elsewhere. ( I haven’t seen people leaving during the pandemic but I’m sure it will continue once this is over)

      Pros

      Good work/life balance, access to new technologies.

      Cons

      Nepotism runs rampant. After the departure of Dr. Byrne I would have assumed it had gotten better. Unfortunately it seemed to have traveled to new leaders.

      The Tech side of Overstock is a pretty solid company with a good future if they can only keep focused.

      Pros

      Good work/life balance. Opportunities for advancement and promotions, amenities, environment and culture. I really enjoyed my team and department I worked in. My pay was above average for the marketplace.

      Cons

      The CEO is trying to sell off the retail portion of the company while keeping the tech side and blockchain property management and development subsidiaries. So, it's often difficult to gauge your career path and your place in the company.
