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

Pros

Lots of different kinds of work to do. Good first experience.

Cons

Poor senior leadership. No alignment. Review process is political and unfair.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

People who report to you will leave because of the failed structure you set up. If you really believe in retention, change it.

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

    Pros

    Great customer impact. Great management, team work is well appreciated and a good place to develop people and technical skills.

    Sometimes you reach career flats where you want to consider moving around, but depending on manager, its relatively easy to change teams. Lots of opportunities within eBay and Paypal.

    Relatively new tech stack completely based on open source standards.

    Cons

    Depending on your area, a lot of domains will end up with similar work.

    Massive legacy code base and redundant functionality on site.
