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

    Pros

    This 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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at eBay Inc.

    Pros

    Great 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.

    Cons

    High 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 ManagementAdvice

    Less short-term focus on quarterly results and invest in the future like Amazon.
