A great place to work

Marketing (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

ProsFantastic corporate culture: The mantra at StubHub is work hard, play hard. Although the daily grind can at times be vigorous, StubHub goes well out of their way to show employees that their work is valued. This is done through ticket raffles to various concerts and sporting events, free lunches, free bagels on Friday mornings, and tons of after work social opportunities. Also, there are countless ways to unwind during the work day, including ping pong tables and basketball games in break rooms, rock band, and ESPN on every TV in the office. Lastly, EVERYONE here is crazy about sports and/or music. It's great to work at a place that lets you talk about sports and music as part of your job.

Strong focus on values: StubHub's primary goal is to ensure buyers have the ultimate fan experience. This is reiterated over and over throughout the company. It also helps that everyone here is a sports/music fanatic. This helps put employees in the customer's shoes.

Excellent leadership: Chris Tsakalakis and his leadership team have done an excellent job propelling this company forward. They are extremely focused and driven towards accomplishing the company's BHAG. Furthermore, they clearly outline long and short term goals and what every department has to do to help accomplish them. Top-down communication is also excellent. Chris T sends out numerous company wide emails highlighting company news and accomplishments. More specific to the marketing department, Ray Elias (CMO) has done a fantastic job ensuring that there is strong synergy within our department.

Career opportunities: StubHub is expanding very quickly domestically and internationally, particularly in the UK. This creates the possibility of moving vertically and laterally within the company.

Compensation & Benefits: Employees are compensated very well for their work. In addition to a competitive salary, employees receive full benefits (health, vision, dental), 401k matching, eBay stock options, and reimbursement for public transportation expenses. Also, because StubHub is owned by eBay, employees get access to a number of eBay company perks. These include discounts on Zipcar rentals/membership, Apple products, major phone carrier plans (Verizon, AT&T, Sprint), Dell computers, gym memberships, pet insurance, FedEx shipping, popular California travel destinations (Disneyland, Universal Studios, etc.), and tons of other stuff.

ConsWork/Life balance can be a bit skewed at times. This is something the company is looking to fix. They are conducting employee interviews and focus groups to look for how to remedy this.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work!

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

    I have been working at StubHub full-time for more than a year


    Pros: Solid company vision. Many bright folks in the company. "Big brother" eBay doesn't interfere with day-to-day operations.… Cons: The vision is there but could use some more help with execution. Smart team but many seem to live for the lime-light.
