    Pros

    eBay is an innovative, forward thinking company with a very positive corporate culture, strong executive leadership at corporate level (in San Jose), excellent benefits and internal employee programs, and very smart people.

    Cons

    There was zero work like balance at eBay Enterprise (formerly GSI Commerce). There were integration pains in relation to corporate culture. eBay Enterprise's leadership not quite on board with corporate leadership priorities as it related to work/life balance. Employees did not feel comfortable taking advantage of any internal program that didn't result in more GMV for their clients and management did little to discourage this behavior. Also, clients were unhappy with continued delays to technology platform, which created strained relations for those managing client relationships.

    Advice to Management

    Get on board with encouraging employees to take time to recharge.

    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.

    Pros

    There are no pro's for Ebay

    Cons

    My company was acquired by Ebay. In addition to the typical shifting and layoffs of our people, they gave our work to India and demanded that we teach them how to do our jobs. That meant working 24 hour days and weekends. They followed that up by hiring Accenture to "help" streamline and cut corners. Ebay gave Accenture complete power and as a result everyone associated with development and testing have lost their jobs and replaced with Accenture employees.

    Advice to Management

    None. All my managers and their superiors lost their jobs or were moved into positions at the whim of Accenture.
