    Pros

    A lot of great coworkers, excellent benefits. Good pay.

    Kontras

    Many positions are specific to Overstock. No one has any idea what is going on. A baindaid is put on issues without actually solving the core of the problem. Processes change way too often. Direct management became very micromanaging.
    After one round of over 100 lay offs, they tell those of us who were still there we are safe. A few weeks later, another 100+ get let go. I don't think Overstock is going to be around much longer.

    Pros

    Many of my peers became my good friends. Unfortunately, several of them have been laid off.

    Many of my managers were encouraging mentors that actually made a difference in my life.

    The building is pretty nice. Plenty of amenities and employee resources.

    When the company isn’t burning to the ground, there’s a pretty good culture. Lots of parties with good opportunities to network and make friends.

    Sometimes the executives learn from their mistakes. For example, the second round of 2019 layoffs was handled much better than the first.

    The bathrooms are always very clean.

    Kontras

    The CEO, Patrick Byrne, is an insufferable blowhard who treats the company-wide email distro like a personal platform for Ted Talks and hot takes. He misses no opportunity to send lengthy, onanistic emails wherein he mansplains Bitcoin, blockchain, stocks, the marketplace, the virtues of libertarianism, and the reason he dresses himself like a Shaolin monk.

    There’s a fundamental disconnect between the executive team and those working behind desks. This disconnect is the result of gaslighting and faux-transparency from the execs. While we did get shown the company’s numbers every once in a while, it seemed we never really got the full story. When things went south, those of us at the bottom paid the price for decisions we had nothing to do with.

    Every six months, it feels like you’re working for a different company, and your job (if you still have one six months after starting) might be completely different in terms of goals and workload. Whatever you were doing for the last six months quickly gets forgotten or struck down as a bad strategy. Execs try to sugarcoat the company's volatile and erratic nature by saying that Overstock is agile and adaptable, but it’s demoralizing and makes you feel like nothing you do matters.

    I know that a lot of this isn’t unique to Overstock. Plenty of companies struggle with similar issues, but Overstock tries to build an allure around being better than other companies. It isn’t.

    The recent layoffs made many of us feel that Byrne miscalculated and is desperately scrapping what’s left of the retail company to fund his other business interests. Byrne has publicly stated that he wants to sell the retail company, and it really shows. We feel like wood being burned to keep tZERO warm.

    The bathrooms are always crowded. Gotta go? Prepare to do a lap around the building to find a vacant stall.

    Pros

    Overstock is a great place to work. The facilities are amazing. Gym on site, with great classes. Onsite Health care clinic and daycare. We have dental cleaning and hair cut onsite every so often. You don't have to leave work to get things done. Flexible schedule. It's a fun place to work.

    Kontras

    The CEO is more focused on the Crypto part of the business, than on the retail part. So there's not much direction, and it's a bit messy. Still, I get work done and have opportunities to learn and grow.

    Rat an das Management

    Put someone in charge that cares about the retail part of the business. Patrick is never around. Or sell us already.

    Healthcare benefits, party through out the years

    Too many layoffs new hires never laid off older employees first out the door. They do it by email no dignity.

    No advice they wouldn't listen.

    Pros

    The people, the tech, and the vision.

    The people are some of the most talented in the industry. They are smart, hard working, and collaborative. This is true of the IC’s all the way up to Patrick.

    The tech stack is a dream come true for any Developer, Analyst, or Engineer. At most companies, the backend/pipeline is the limitation. At Overstock, any idea can be implemented because of the foundation that has been built over the last 20 years.

    Patrick’s vision is what has, and will soon again, make Overstock.com the most profitable pure play retailer on the internet.

    Kontras

    There have been bumps in the road and distractions from the vision over the years, but they don’t ever last long. The company recently went through one of the bigger distractions in its history, but has course corrected.

    Rat an das Management

    Be willing to listen to the people you have put in positions of trust.

    Pros

    great at hiring entry level positions and getting people the experience they need
    very flexible schedule, at least for salaried employees
    solid pay
    good benefits
    decent culture

    Kontras

    HR's cult-like mentality about the CEO
    Former president acted like she was still in high school.
    Obvious, in-your-face nepotism
    Only focused on blockchain.
    They continuously lie or at the very least stretch the truth to the rest of the company (i.e. only a few layoffs turns into hundreds in several rounds after they swear "this is the last one").
    There needs to be more transparency because no one can be effective if they are constantly stressed about whether the company or their position will survive until next week.
    Never had a clear direction of what we were doing, but from the top down, it was basically just "wing it, guys. you're smart enough to make this happen". then get mad at specific teams when things dont go as expected
    they lay off hundreds of people, yet give thousands in bonuses to a few specific ones.
    alcohol. i'm not talking "beer on your lunch break" drinks. I mean, any holiday was an excuse to drink company-provided hard liquor. many people got pretty drunk often. dont get me wrong, it was fun, but id rather have a bonus instead of a crazy high liquor budget.

    Rat an das Management

    CEOs/presidents/founders deserve to make a lot of money from starting a successful business and creating thousands of jobs, but at a certain point, after a certain amount of years and many huge mistakes, it's not just you keeping the business afloat anymore, it's all of your stressed-out employees working tirelessly to make you, themselves, and the company more money. you owe it to them to be transparent. if you want to sell, then sell and stop dragging everyone down with you until there's nothing left. if you want to focus on blockchain then focus on blockchain but stop attempting to convince everyone that you're still a retail company.
