One of the fastest growing firms in history of business (Ok, so Google eclipsed it but who else?).

Pros

eBay itself has a phenomenal business model. While eBay has natural limits to the size of the opportunity for its core business, it has continued to grow through acquisitions and global expansion.

Cons

eBay has gone through many phases as it evolved into a global powerhouse in commerce and payments. There are multiple cultures within eBay Inc that don't always work together well. Some employees are able to have careers that span both cultures (eBay and PayPal) but that is the exception rather than the norm. Advice - find the culture that fits you best and don't look back. If you are lucky enough to feel equally comfortable in both, then you are doubly fortunate.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Merge with Amazon when the timing is right. Amazon = new, eBay = used and PayPal would become the universal Payment king! Game over for "Big Box" retailers and even Walmart would be scared.

    Pros

    Change is constant and there is always another project to capture your attention. You will be constantly challenged by the evolution of the company.

    Cons

    If you don't like change or ambiguity, this is not the company for you. Things sometimes move too fast and departments tend to operate in silos which creates a challenge for all levels of employees.

    I worked at eBay Inc. full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Free drinks, seemed like there was some sort of food provided a few times a month, plenty of career opportunities, stock options, education benefits, great pay

    Cons

    When I left, it seemed there was more of a focus on how many calls/emails you could handle and less on quality of the work/doing the right thing.
