I have been working at eBay Inc. full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Interesting projects, exposure to real world heavy traffic, few smart people to work with, good work life balance , resources available to learn new stuff

Cons

too many levels of management, full of people who please managers and get promotion instead of doing work, afraid to make drastic changes or introduce game changers due to size of traffic and possible impact

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on better evaluation for promotions by discussing with more than just manager and actually checking deliverables
Cafe sucks, dont make it free, but make it good

    I have been working at eBay Inc. full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The benefits are pretty good.

    Cons

    They will try to get rid of you as you get more tenure. Raises are horrible. Convoluted management that is highly unqualified. Often management has no functional understanding of operations but continues to make poor choices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While benefits are good, they get worse every year. Our industry peers are far better at taking care of employees. You dont value tenure. Your management plays favorites and hides a lot. Honesty is lacking and the employee voices are rarely heard or acted on. Career advancement opportunities are horrible...
