    I have been working at eBay Enterprise full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Smart, interesting people who are fun to work with. Relatively casual environment for the size of the company. Good pay and benefits. Some great and innovative work is done here, but it can be hard to find.

    Cons

    Great people leave because they feel like they're dead-ended and can't get promoted. Senior management is completely clueless when it comes to what their employees are actually doing every day and it shows. Some parts of the company have a low-transparency, high-BS culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open a dialogue with your middle managers and Associates, and actually listen.

    I have been working at eBay Enterprise full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The best thing about EE is that if you are in the right position, the base pay is excellent and the stock grants are phenomenal. These are the proverbial golden handcuffs which make it hard to leave. There is also a certain freedom here to do what you want because there is so little oversight. This means that if you are good at what you do, you'll have tons of autonomy. If you are a slacker, then you'll fit in as well and will be able to get away with pretty much anything with little to no consequences.

    Cons

    Commitments to clients are always broken, there is no trust between client and Ebay Enterprise. There is also little to no trust between management and employees. Employee turnover rates are greater than 28% yearly because your manager could care less about your career because he/she knows you'll leave soon anyway. I cannot imagine being a client of EE. Be wary of long term contracts--most clients leave after the contracts are over due to horrible execution and performance. Seriously, if you are a client considering EE, please look elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do the right thing and listen to corporate CEO John Donahoe. CEO John Donahoe, please do a full audit of local leadership and do the needful. Your $2.4 billion investment is going downhill fast and you don't seem to really care. You bought us and never fixed us. Please bring in strong new leadership that isn't afraid to make bold decisions. This company could be great but we need a complete retooling.

    Pros

    Salary, place to sit down and work

    Cons

    Crappy office (looked liked a JUNK-YARD rather than a office )
    Talking to Recruiters make to feel like you are being obliged by them.
    They don't reply to your emails/questions
    Totally unprofessional.
    Can't imagine such kind of people work eBay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Career opportunities - have received 4 promotions during my time with the company. Great benefits - no waiting period for paid time off or benefits. The company is growing and expanding all the time - as an employee, that gives you job security and opens doors for more opportunities. Real sense of teamwork!

    Cons

    Peak season can be tough - requires working a lot of hours and is intense, but it's great to see everyone willing to pull together and do what's required to ensure success.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes Sr. Management and Mid-level Management don't seem to be on the same page. Ensure decisions are made in a timely manner and that clear communication reaches all levels.

    Current Employee - Software Engineer II in King of Prussia, PA

    I have been working at eBay Enterprise as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Relatively good pay. For some initial months, had free beer Fridays!

    Cons

    Long hours -- work is never ending. Not is it satisfactory in the end of day. The new software platform will take some years to mature so it's currently do whatever it takes to hack, hack, hack

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower technical managers, senior developers to do the right thing. Provide some sort of incentives so that any remaining smart managers/developers do not leave the company after 6+ months.

    Current Employee - Manager  in  King of Prussia, PA
    Current Employee - Manager in King of Prussia, PA

    I have been working at eBay Enterprise full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Compensation and benefits are solid
    Facilities are well maintained

    Cons

    - Totally dysfunctional organization, from top to bottom (some departments are worse than others)
     - Absolutely no appreciation of work force, you are viewed as a "tool" to be used until broken.
     - NO work life balance – NONE, anyone who tells you different is lying to you.
     - Expectations are totally unrealistic, due to past miss-steps and terrible decisions, which the company is now paying for in a big way.
     - Could continue, but basically – this is a terrible place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Check the egos – stop living on past accomplishments - the place is a mess and you should know that - if you guys were so good, so smart, so advanced, your clients would say so, yes... Not sure that is happening, is it?

    Take a REAL look at the state of the company, be real, be honest, and identify WHO allowed it to happen (at all levels, not just executive level, but Directors / Senior management as well) – need to clean house.

    you need new blood/viewpoints, and listen to them if you can get anyone of substance to sign-up for the re-build!

    Build alignment, teamwork and change the culture, it starts at the top – not just talk, real change.

    Hope it is not too late!
