Pros

- Great place to learn how a large e-commerce site is run and all the issues (data infrastructure, seller relationships, user experience, etc) it faces. - Many smart people with pretty diverse industry backgrounds. - Lot of opportunities to move within the company to experience different roles. - The products you work on have the potential to become high visibility because eBay has so many users.

Cons

- Relatively slow moving organization. - Relatively risk averse. New, interesting ideas take a long time to get off the ground because many groups that need to sign off have no incentive to support new improvements - they're there to support the status quo. - Mostly a hierarchical organization with power for decision making concentrated at the top. Depending on the project this can cause some churn, minor decisions get revisited because someone upstairs wants their say. - Quality of co-workers is a bit uneven. Some are great to learn from, others make you wonder how they got in.

Advice to Management

Streamline the organizations even more and empower employees to make quick decisions.

    Pros

    Really passionate people, it's great that we're now a part of eBay. You feel like you're really making a difference and having an impact. Working hard leads to results. Company has hired a lot of new senior leaders who are leading the company in an exciting direction.

    Cons

    Business units still operate in a bit of a siloed environment, but are starting to integrate and work together more effectively.

    Advice to Management

    Great vision and strategy, but we need to get better at executing to get the results that we want.
