Pros

Fun environment to work in. If you are an intern it is pretty easy to be lazy and not do anything.

Cons

Because at times you don't have any real responsibilities it becomes extremely boring and you begin to slowly lose your mind.

Advice to Management

I believe that you need to develop a more comprehensive and engaging intern experience.

    Pros

    - Well managed personnel for the most part
    - Great cooperation with most other teams and individuals
    - Great educational experience... most team members are willing to share knowledge, experience
    - Good working environment, usually willing to be flexible in schedules and amount of hours worked... there is some attempt at work/life balance
    - Excellent compensation and benefits, matching 401k
    - Good work environment... staff usually has a good sense of humor, and tolerance for multiple personality types.
    - Exposure to lots of roles and technologies...and some very bright and committed staff in almost every area of the company.
    - The company has been doing a much better job of addressing customer issues, especially related to site consistency, bugs, performance and resolution of issues... but still has a long way to go.

    Cons

    - Long hours, and commitment of senior staff for 24/7 support
    - Change is constant, and sometimes drastic. Management/Exec turnover has been high in recent years, which can lead to frequent organizational and priority changes
    - The site has been undergoing major changes and adjustments which can be hard on both clients (buyers and sellers) and support staff. Not necessarily a bad thing... changes were needed.
    - Politics have become more of an issue with recent exec/org changes... more chaos breeds more politics and conflicting priorities/strategies, a long with a lack of accountability.

    Advice to Management

    - Get away from the philosophy of "every one should do everything" and actually hold people accountable for what they were hired to do... when everyone is allowed to wonder/explore areas of interest but not expertise, a lot of resources get wasted and things don't quite turnout the way they would have had dedicated, expert resources been allocated. No one can be an expert at everything.
