    I worked at eBay Enterprise full-time

    Pros

    - eBay brand looks great on a resume
    - Great location off of Mill Ave
    - Good benefits package
    - Casual work environment, can wear t-shirts, shorts and flip flops to work
    - Happy hours with team members

    Cons

    Where to begin? One gets the sense that the Fetchback office was once a great place to work, but working in the office now it's impossible to ignore the oppressive atmosphere of negativity hanging over everyone's heads. Management constantly blames employees for being unable to meet the unrealistic goals set by the senior executives, rather than taking any real accountability for any poor decisions they have made. Sales often puts the cart before the horse, leaving operations to try and turn a crappy deal into a pot of gold. Technology is broken but there are never sufficient resources put behind fixing the issues, resulting in lots of broken promises and consistent delays on product delivery. The teams feel very siloed and it seems obvious that each team is operating oblivious to what the other teams actually do and are capable of doing.

    Most of this would probably be tolerable if not for the condescending (and at times blatantly rude and disrespectful) attitude of some managers toward the employees. Senior enterprise sales managers have been known to verbally abuse members of the ad ops team with no real consequences.

    Get some experience under your belt, meet a few great people, but get out while you can.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house with senior management. Leadership has remained in place despite three mass layoffs and no indication of being able to turn the ship around and start meeting company goals.

    unhealthy corporate environment

    Former Contractor - Software Contractor in Columbus, OH
    Former Contractor - Software Contractor in Columbus, OH

    I worked at eBay Enterprise as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    In the Marketing--Attribution space, they had many great opportunities to deliver interesting and creative technical products.
    They were fairly good about being flexible with hours and working from home.

    Cons

    They were led by an extremely negative, self-serving core of political employees.

    These senior leaders focused on protecting their day-to-day influence over everything else, making every day a challenge for those who preferred results to politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If they can't seriously change the culture of the senior staff, they maybe should be "promoted" to new responsibilities to give their current teams and projects a new chance.

    I worked at eBay Enterprise

    Pros

    the people who worked there were quality and driven individuals with a passion to innovate and excel forward.

    Cons

    most of these ideas were stuffed down due to upper management. New ideas were "said" to be encouraged, but no follow through would occur. Because of the takeover and muting of innovation within the office, the company morale declined significantly, especially with unattainable financial projections with little actualized numbers behind it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    walk your talk. be real, take responsibility for poor decisions.

    Pros

    There are many great, talented people. Good location in the South Bay. Some schedule flexibility (depending on your manager)

    Cons

    Senior management makes decisions without fully considering their employees. Compensation is not competitive. Competent employees are expected to pick up slack for the dead weight

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the dead weight staff go. Pay your employees fairly.

    I worked at eBay Enterprise full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great teams. Hard working people who care about eachother. Benefits were very competitive. Energy is big and there are social activities and laughs. A fun culture with plenty of happy hrs and bagel wednesdays. The job teaches a ton of skills and disciplines you.

    Cons

    Projects are left in the hands of anyone but the management. No guidance is given and there is nowhere to ask for help or backup.

    Work life balance in non-existent regardless of the vacation days given, you will always be logged on. Clients dont know the lack of attention on some accounts. Promotions are far and few and starting salary is low. Barely anyone stays for more than a few years and once someone leaves everyone gets screwed. They do not hire replacements, or they place the rare new hires on confusing assignments.

    Executives are constantly swapping out, the last just left for a trading offense. Theres no trust in most managers because they aren't effective. The vision for the company as a whole is not integrated well across KOP & other offices. There is a lot of confusion on who is responsible for what, especially if there is performance compensation involved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get clearer communication between the big guys and you. HIRE people to help the workload. Stop relying on the same people so they dont burn out. Help your own grow instead of a revolving door because clients feel it.

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

    Pros

    Pay is decent for the area.

    Lots of new and interesting projects to get involved with.

    Some great peers to collaborate with.

    Middle management tries their best to work with you.

    Cons

    Promotions are far and few between.

    Employee rating system is inconsistent.

    Work life balance issues.

    Discussing concerms with upper management is a big no no

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work to enhance your employees. Listen to pulse survey, and to understand the importance of employee moral.

    Saying things like "this was management's decision for the benefit of the company" is not helpful without further discussion if there are concerns.

    I worked at eBay Enterprise full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working for eBay was an inspiring experience, and there are some great people working here.I got to work on some great brands. eBay Enterprise does have a promising future, if they can capitalize on their many technological advantages

    Cons

    However, it also has a deplorable leadership team, who has no interest in leading, only sustaining the bureaucracy and keeping the West Coast off their necks. I have rarely seen less professional leaders who are near non-existent to the rank-and-file employees. The virtual HR system is terrible to deal with, and if a staff member has an issue, and I have never seen them side with anyone but management, even in the face of allegations against said leaders.

    The buildings housing the marketing teams are anything but inspiring, equipment is dated, and the despite the "Shared Values" mantra, the leaders do not impart a single one of those values to their teams. The culture is "make it work"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Close outlying campuses, restructure new biz goals, update work environment, and clean house on most leaders who have been there over two years. They don't believe in eBay's values, and long for a return to the True Action way of doing business. It was demoralizing watching us bring in

    Pros

    The pay was great, worked with great people. some ability to work remotely. great name to have on resume

    Cons

    Very disorganized with lack of communication between disciplines. The offices are bland and not inspiring. Employees want to work on the new technology, but everything is 5 years in the past. high turn over rate, promotions are rare and career path are hard define.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management needs an overhaul. Their egos get in the way and often unprofessional and cannot make up their mind on direction, communication between teams and the company needs to be more encouraged. Focus on the employee satisfaction and office culture.

    Pros

    Overall there has been vast improvements during my tenure but constant business process changes every 90 days mean everytime you start to get traction and see benefits from a process....it gets changed.

    Cons

    Gypsy management team brought it as 'world class leaders' with high turn over rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop from within, stop thinking your only choice is another low knowledge but highly polished from finishing school 'leader'.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Pay is very good for management. The facility is relatively new, clean and well-maintained. It's out in the middle of nowhere, so it is very quiet when you go outside at night.

    Cons

    Hourly employees are not treated well by operations management which they do not trust. Pay for hourly employees is well below the norm for the area. Too many process/policy changes continually and all at once. Senior management tends to hire friends to fill management positions and do not hold them accountable. Operation management tend to get whatever resources they desire, while support departments are neglected for proper staffing levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come up with a across the board plan and stick with it. Treat all departments fairly.
