I worked at eBay Inc.

Pros

Great social events, all the coffee, tea, soda you can drink, fitness gym, fun contests, prizes, great people. Fun environment due to the casual setting. You can decorate your desk and show your personality. Charities are an important part of eBay's value.

Cons

Surprise laid off announcement. Depends on which department, there may be politics. Work can be very repetitive. Due to many internal information, it can be frustrating to explain why certain things is the way it is to the customers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't be a Nazi, sometimes being nice and trusting goes a long way.

    I have been working at eBay Inc.

    Pros

    The compensation and the atmosphere are excellent with this company! Some of the lower level management are very good. The overall nature of this business is unique and one of a kind!

    Cons

    TERRIBLE upper management.
    A CEO that runs his business based on some poor experience he must have had buying on ebay.
    No vision is present in this company. They look to the future and prey. Business does not work that way!
    To much outsourcing sending good American jobs overseas while customer service suffers.
    This company has a very long history of ignoring the needs of their customers.
    The CEO is intentionally making changes to the core business to reduce the customer base. To put more focus on it paypal payment service.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to your roots and get rid of the entire upper management. Listen to the advice of your customers, who know best! The sad truth is that the only way this company can rebound is to remove John Donahoe from his position. He has done irreversible damage to the company and will continue to do so until someone steps in to stop him. For the sake of the customers, shareholders, and staff I hope this happens soon.
