    I have been working at eBay Inc. full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They have some VERY smart people at eBay. Competitve salary and benefits. Great brand name that provides useful experience and credibility in the job market.

    Cons

    Org structure WAY too complicated and fragmented. Openly skeptical (if not hostile) to any kind of marketing that cannot be directly measured within a week, month or quarter. Some of the folks in more senior positions are really impeding the potential growth of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at how competitors are growing. Ebay is becoming less relevant as people go first to other etailers and then only come to eBay as a last resort.

    Don't be afraid to make a long-term investment in offline marketing. It has paid out - and continues to pay out - for lots of etailers like Apple and Amazon. eBay is not a product company. It is a consumer company with an internet-based front end. Almost everyone has heard of eBay, but very few are eBay users. By definition, that is a perception problem that isn't going to be addressed by just making site improvements that no one sees.

    I worked at eBay Inc. full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    There are some brilliant people, pay is competitive. Depending on the project assigned there can be some interesting problems to solve

    Cons

    There is a fair amount of corruption. Promotions are based on friendships and not necessarily merit
