Pros

- Good competent colleagues
- Innovations in work is possible
- Company can make good profits by segmenting the formats clearly
- Good facilities within the company. Freebies are still available when the economy is what it is now

Cons

- Innovations are not leveraged by the company
- Improve the processes and regain the technology DNA within the company
- Managers are not competent enough to un do the process heavy life cycle and adapt a agile life cycle for products
- Too many meetings for people at all levels and seems the only way to communicate across group and across layers of hierarchy is by meeting

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Tactical direction should be given by the middle management. Senior management should provide strategic direction.

    eBay execs need to come up with an executable plan for our strategy.

    Pros

    In general, the work life balance is decent and the work is interesting.

    Cons

    Upper management doesn't have a clear strategy for eBay, so all the VPs and below are running around trying to come up with recommendations. Getting projects prioritized is very difficult when you need other teams to buy in to your project. There are many intelligent people and leaders at eBay, but unfortunately there isn't a great sense of direction. I find that we're constantly working very hard to get some sort of project out, only to run into technical issues or another group which questions what we're trying to accomplish. We also have some technical issues which are preventing the approval of some of the projects. We have been iterating on our search algorithm and page designs for too many years now, without much progress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make some real strategic decisions and let the VPs know so it can trickle down to the employees.
