    Pros

    Company cares about employees. Do the right thing is a standard practice. Great benefits, and opportunity for growth. Managers treat reports with respect, and are held accountable for their actions.

    Cons

    Huddle meetings 3 times a week, and numerous meetings with visitors are not beneficial. Huddles don't serve their purpose of communication and take away from time that work could be performed.

    Pros

    You can't beat the benefits and pay.

    Cons

    Constant change is fine. Even welcome in a competitive environment. This leadership seems to change direction just to change direction. But you must know where you are going and why you are going there.

    Advice to Management

    Set a course and head there. And hold people accountable.

    Pros

    Consumer and B2B opportunities. Many opportunities for creative projects. Engaged executive leadership. Casual attire year round! :) If you have unique talents, you can really shine.

    Cons

    A bit slow in decisionmaking which then impacts everyone down the line. Very hierarchical; Sr. Director + are usually the only folks who are decision makers. Lots of turnover recently; not sure how PayPal spinoff will impact the Marketplace.

    Advice to Management

    Trust the people to get it right, and not just your direct reports.
