I worked at eBay Inc. full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

The Founder had great ideas, a vision for the future, and built a company that supported employees to enable them to do their jobs and encouraged innovation. Pay was adequate, low for Silicon Valley, but employee stock purchase opportunities and option grants were good, and sabbaticals were regularly scheduled.

Cons

As the company became more mature, the vision was lost, most of the new hires came fresh from Business School with a goal of resumé building. Rather than engage with the company, these employees looked to climbing the ladder up and out, and treated their jobs and co-workers as temporary, but aggressively sought recognition and remuneration.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Decide what eBay is going to be for the future. Develop a vision of where you want to take eBay and the best (or better) way to get there. Stop trying so many different approaches without letting any of them continue to maturity. Don't buy any more companies without thoroughly investigating them and considering how they fit in with the overall picture.
