    Pros

    I can think of zero pros

    Cons

    Despite attempts to adopt the positive culture of ebay, GSI continues to promote its own negative backstabbing agenda involving setting all up for failure while expecting otherwise.

    Pros

    Salary, place to sit down and work

    Cons

    Crappy office (looked liked a JUNK-YARD rather than a office )
    Talking to Recruiters make to feel like you are being obliged by them.
    They don't reply to your emails/questions
    Totally unprofessional.
    Can't imagine such kind of people work eBay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    FIRE such crappy recruiters and managers

    Current Employee - Manager in King of Prussia, PA
    Current Employee - Manager in King of Prussia, PA

    I have been working at eBay Enterprise full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Compensation and benefits are solid
    Facilities are well maintained

    Cons

    - Totally dysfunctional organization, from top to bottom (some departments are worse than others)
     - Absolutely no appreciation of work force, you are viewed as a "tool" to be used until broken.
     - NO work life balance – NONE, anyone who tells you different is lying to you.
     - Expectations are totally unrealistic, due to past miss-steps and terrible decisions, which the company is now paying for in a big way.
     - Could continue, but basically – this is a terrible place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Check the egos – stop living on past accomplishments - the place is a mess and you should know that - if you guys were so good, so smart, so advanced, your clients would say so, yes... Not sure that is happening, is it?

    Take a REAL look at the state of the company, be real, be honest, and identify WHO allowed it to happen (at all levels, not just executive level, but Directors / Senior management as well) – need to clean house.

    you need new blood/viewpoints, and listen to them if you can get anyone of substance to sign-up for the re-build!

    Build alignment, teamwork and change the culture, it starts at the top – not just talk, real change.

    Hope it is not too late!

    I worked at eBay Enterprise full-time

    Pros

    Free Bagels, Soda, Ability to work from home sometimes

    Cons

    Laughable pay raises, promotions are rare, growth (what's that?), working around the clock, beating their employees into the ground until they have nothing left to give, little-to-no recognition, revolving door, terrible culture, senior management non-existent. Only way to get a raise is by getting another offer and making them match it. This is a known fact.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of all of them and start over.

    I have been working at eBay Enterprise

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are decent

    Cons

    Everything else? I knew I made a mistake a week after I started. Everyone is miserable. Low morale. Constant finger pointing and passing the buck amongst teams and departments. High turnover and that's not even considering the layoffs that happen almost yearly. They're losing clients left and right because of missed goals and timelines. Run far and fast away from this company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care a little about your employees.

    Current Employee - Grunt in King of Prussia, PA
    Current Employee - Grunt in King of Prussia, PA

    I have been working at eBay Enterprise full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Few things I like about this place: paycheck, exposure to many different and current technologies, great co-workers--really smart, talented people.

    Cons

    We were GSI Commerce. That is being eroded and anything with GSI stamped on it is being erased. Our president told us a year ago, "If you don't subscribe to our [corporate] philosophy, you should leave." How awful is that? I don't have a mission to change the world for eBay. That is so wrong and offensive. I don't want to leave. I want to do the same good job I've done for many years. I'll change the world on my own time, thank you.

    It's often very difficult to find the right person to help. It's a complex engine and you can't figure it out yourself. Because turnover is so high the subject matter expert you thought you knew quit or was fired last week.

    Also, management is dysfunctional, delusional, and deficient. Constant reorgs. Exactly how many times can you restructure the middle managers in a year or two? Apparently there is no limit with this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop punishing the workers.

    Opportunity to go work for corp in San Jose, flexible schedules, nice people

    Cons

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat the people you have right, stop being so skimpy with head count if you want this to be a great place to work as you claim.

    Pros

    PTO is great. Nothing else is really that good.

    Cons

    No way to move up. They always hire outside for supervisor and manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire within. Give people credit that has done the job for years and not make them train someone who has no clue that is going to run your DEPT.

    Current Employee - Test Automation in King of Prussia, PA
    Current Employee - Test Automation in King of Prussia, PA

    I have been working at eBay Enterprise full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Ability to learn a lot of new things - because everything is done at a fast pace. You do get paid well but other benefits are just ok.

    Cons

    You are working for a sweat shop. You are just a number and nothing more. Grueling hours and management will only look to point out faults regardless of how much work you put in. Terrible work culture - everyone is pointing fingers at each other (teams in different product areas do not work well with each other). Clients are unhappy, the platform is based on a terrible product from Intershop.

    Oh yeah - and management decided that they didn't want to have test automation. So that they can hire cheaper manual QA just fresh from college or abuse the eBay internship program some more. I felt so sorry for those poor kids - not getting paid to work in this terrible place.

    Please do not in your right mind join this place if you care for your health or family. We were stuck in a room like a bunch of cattle and management was checking to see who comes in at what time and leave at what time. It was just terrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't think employees are just a number. Oh and the reviewer who said that they have sabbaticals - ha yes but three years down ok?
