Great shared purpouse and tech company

Business Development Manager (Current Employee)
London, England (UK)

I have been working at eBay Inc. full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThis company has great ideals, but sometime management fails to focus on their execution. People are very smart and fun to work with, and work life balance is great. Though there isn't that much challenge everyday and people are afraid often to go against the status quo and risk for new breakthrough ideas.

ConsThis company has great ideals, but sometime management fails to focus on. People are very smart and fun to work with, and work life balance is great. Though there isn't that much challenge everyday and people are afraid often to go against the status quo and risk for new breakthrough ideas.

Advice to Senior ManagementI think the management needs to devolve a small part of their time towards more operational activities, to truly understand our customers.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Used to be great...now just ok

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
London, England (UK)

I worked at eBay Inc.

ProsGreat opportunities to learn and interface with a global team. Generally, people are smart and work together to get results. Campus culture is good as is the riverside location in Richmond.

ConsHigh concentration of management consultants, so a lot of pointless Powerpoint presentations. Richmond is a bit far from central London, so may be a con for some.

Advice to Senior ManagementLess short-term focus on quarterly results and invest in the future like Amazon.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
