    I worked at eBay Inc.

    Pros

    Great environment , excellent perks like game rooms, free gym benefits , modern facility design , great sabbatical after 5 years of working you get one month off of vacation to use all at once .

    Cons

    the quality coaches for customer service nit pics every call they grade , they would give you a bad assessment on the call if you wouldn't have did what they would've did in a certain situation. Which is dumb because everybody dont think the same way. No matter if it didn't effect the customer experience they still would feel that there was something else we could've did on the call.
