    eBay was wonderful. Very lucky to work with so many good people.

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

    ProsWonderful people, great colleagues who became friends as well
    Provides career opportunity in terms of relocation or moving across the other eBay owned business but one should still be proactive about own career
    Free fruits and breakfast provided in the office

    ConsThe company is getting too big in size so things are moving slower. More hoops to jump through to get things executed.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great place to work

    Senior Designer (Former Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsGreat on the cv when it's time to find your next job. I worked at eBay for nearly 5 years and it really helps when it comes to looking for your next job. eBay is still seen as one of the top Internet companies to work for and is known for only hiring top talent so having it on your cv makes you stand out.

    Also, it's a very interesting business to be in, right in the intersection between ecommerce and social media. Some would argue it was one of the first "web 2.0" companies and is still exploring that space.

    ConsBIG machine, loads of processes. As with all big companies there is a lot of processes at eBay to the extend that product development can take a very long time. If you the type that "just want to get things done" I'd argue that eBay is not for you.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue the good work.
