    Amazing, fun and fulfillment

    Graduate Intern (Former Employee) San Jose, CA

    ProsGreat culture, flexible work hours and work is always good.
    My team was very welcoming and my Mentor helped me a lot and cleared lot of my basic questions during the on-boarding process. I was like a blunt knife when i started but I am quite deft with the web tech i was working with, all thanks to ebay.

    ConsThe manager liked my work but since he didn't have an opening on his team I couldn't get return fulltime offer!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
