eBay is better than most of the crappy jobs I've had

Pros

Big company with lots of exposure and impact in the market. Really, in all fairness, it's not the worst place in the world to work. In the beginning, when I started, the stock benefits were sweet. Now, they've dried up, so that thrill is gone. I've bounced around to a lot of jobs within the company, and it's more or less the same everywhere: confusion. Management is trying to find the eBay mojo again. Unfortunately, I'm not sure they have the vision and creativity that Pierre had when he started eBay. I'm not even sure it would be as great if he started it tomorrow.

Cons

Stock price and company mojo have dissipated in the last few years. No longer the visionary company Pierre started.

Advice to Management

Stop worrying about the stock price, and start managing for the future. Find out what the members want, and give it to them in the simplest way possible. Reduce site complexity.

    Good to have on your resume. But not a place to work after 2 or 3 years.

    Pros

    To get the experience of working on a highly scalable architecture. Learn about processes, ability to multitask, work with different functional and development teams, collobrate.

    Cons

    Very stressful environment due to multitasking and too many releases. Very thin opportunites for growth inspite of putting lot of hard work. Verd bad medical and other perks. No constant motivation or financial rewards for people who work very hard and make a difference. Recently to many mangement changes and politics.

    Advice to Management

    They need to improve the downsides that I have mentioned in order not to loose people and also make ebay a great place to work.
