    I worked at eBay Inc. full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great people! My Coworkers were hard working, customer caring people that cared about their jobs a lot. The benefits were also great.

    Cons

    There are some politics in people moving up in the company, They need your resume to look great, no matter what your performance has been like in other companies. Layoffs happen frequently and their policies change constantly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to focus on being a world class selling and buying platform, not trying to impose the latest brilliant idea that isn't thought out and is usually non relevant.
