Current Employee - Senior Marketing Project Manager in San Jose, CA

I have been working at eBay Inc. full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Great people - smart, talented, focused
After some hard times, the company is again on a positive trajectory
Company tries hard to make employees happy

Cons

There aren't enough resources to get done all that needs to get done - some projects pushed out two years or more
The business model of the company is limiting
There is a great deal of affection for the "old" eBay that it's going to be hard to change that mindset

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get feedback from employees, not just VPs and Directors

    I have been working at eBay Inc. full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The people, the company evolution, the opportunities (as long as you have self-initiative), great leadership with a sharp and compelling vision. There is some great talent at eBay to learn from, especially if you are more junior. Leaders are also relatively accessible which is nice.

    Cons

    Difficult to execute, team consensus culture which prevents accountability, sometimes duplicity in roles. The only thing constant at eBay is change, so you must be ready for and embrace that type of environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More development/career development supporting programs. Initiative owners to drive decisions and make it easier to execute

    Former Employee - Code Monkey in San Jose, CA

    I worked at eBay Inc. full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great place for management trainees (sucks for developers).
    Most teams have no work or too much work.
    Big company.
    Get to meet all shades of characters.

    Cons

    In 14 years of IT I have never come across more egotistical management. Managers have no clue what they are talking about and you being a slave have no authority to question them. Top it off with really bad office politics. As one manager from Google once told me they have very little respect for developers with Ebay on their resume.

    You start each day thinking it could not get any worse and then the "smart" manager just raises the stupidity bar to a whole new level. I can barely control my laughter thinking about what all I have seen and heard.

    Need proof? Most of the good reviews on Glassdoor are all from managers (this is a management hell hole if you know what I am saying ;) ).

    This is the first time in my life that I have really felt the urge to write a review. A very well deserved review.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire 80% of clueless managers.
