    I have been working at eBay Inc.

    Pros

    Smart people in general. People naturally want to succeed. Turn around is a real mantra. Global presence. Easy to move around the company.

    Cons

    Promotions are rare. People are brought in a level below their experience level. Not an innovative company. Most people use the company as a stepping stone. Rare that people stay more than 4 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Integration with purchased entities is key to success. People will not want to stay unless there is a clear path to moving up.

    it is like getting in the coolest, most expensive car you can imagine. And then driving off a cliff.

    I have been working at eBay Inc.

    Pros

    smart people
    relaxed environment
    all the good perks of working for eBay/PayPal (located on the "north" campus/PayPal campus)
    start up spirit
    consensus style environment -- all thoughts and ideas welcome

    Cons

    very little communication from the top down -- not good for a start up
    lots of legacy eBay/PayPal issues, like 100 people who don't do what you do but think they should weigh in on what you should be doing
    meetings -- all the time ...which means you can never find a conference room
    everyone is chronically late to everything. This is a business, not a club.
    there are a few people doing big, interesting, exciting things -- if you aren't one of them or on their team, you don't get noticed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    more official communications from top management -- don't limit your communication to a link to a youtube video. Spend some time in the trenches -- it'll give you an understanding of what our experiences are like. I assure you, our experiences and yours are not the same.
