    Pros

    - This is a time in which the company is very open to new and innovative ways to do things better. Lots of room for input and creativity.
    - Some very smart people here. Everyone I've interacted with so far seems to at least carry their own weight.
    - Generous compensation (if you're willing to negotiate)
    - Technology leadership decisions/goals are more transparent than I've seen at other places.
    - Flexible about time off/telecommuting (though this may be dependent on your manager)

    Cons

    - There's certainly a bell curve in terms of talent. Some people are amazing but many others, while they do their best, are just OK.
    - Communication/transparency with offshore teams is difficult. Domestic management seems to have less control/influence over these teams then they should.
    - Documentation and formal processes are lacking. This makes getting up to speed and getting things done very difficult at first.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Get serious about capturing and cultivating top talent. The entire hiring process needs to be streamlined so that we don't lose people who could be valuable contributors to eBay to our competitors, who seem to move faster than we do on these things.
    - Continue pushing on innovation and expecting creative solutions from your employees. This is actually what makes us excited to come to work every day.
    - Focus on what makes eBay unique and different instead of trying to be like Amazon.
