A place where talent comes to die

Software Engineer (Former Employee) Austin, TX

ProsGreat benefits, few talented people, free soda.

ConsLegacy and proprietary garbage will ruin your day and your desire to live as you count the hours in your little chicken coop/cubicle. For goodness' sake, they still use ClearCase! Java based stack is proprietary with SOAP suck-vices ruling the roost. There are rumors of a better stack in the works but it also is proprietary. Also, svc control is non-existent and any random doofus can call your code without anyone the wiser until you get pulled into troubleshooting live issues overnight. Morons with their tiny little fiefdoms will block you at every turn. Worst of all are the tinpot QA people who will blame you first to ensure that their lack of testing ability doesn't come up when yet another live bug comes up. This place is where know-nothing failures and H1B indentured servants come to lose their soul. Stay the heck away unless you have no talent or desire to grow. Goodbye eNay, I made sure the door didn't hit me on my posterior on the way out.

Advice to Senior ManagementIn the interest of open and honest feedback, I advice you to lay off a lot of people and get some actual talent in place.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Marketing Manager (Current Employee) San Jose, CA

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


    Pros: eBay treats their people really well and the compensation is great. The company itself does enable people all over… Cons: Legacy employees drag everyone else down. Marketing dept is… Advice to Senior Management: Invest in improving internal tools and realize it's 2013. No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
