    I have been working at eBay Inc. as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Lots of freebies: gym, training, food, pop machines, beer bashes, shuttles to and from work, free housing (interns WITH a housekeeper), swag items, work from home abilities, an AMAZING intern conference, brown bags with VP's and Exec's, great salary, AMAZING team and management (I call them family!), and AMAZING culture. I fell in LOVE with eBay because of the friendly and warm culture. I'll now be holding every future company to the "eBay Standard" for corporate culture.

    Cons

    Interns don't get stock options.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your intern program is THEE KEY to pipe-lining amazing, diverse, and intelligent talent into eBay, Inc. If you're in an upper management role and haven't reached out to or supported the University Programs team then I urge you to do so immediately! Find out some of the reasons why interns aren't accepting, how YOU and YOUR teams can improve, and how you can continue to recruit top of the line employees.

    I worked at eBay Inc. as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    As an intern, they treated me like an employee which was amazing. You do not do side projects that have no consequences while interning at eBay. Instead, you get to work on real projects that will be implemented. I was working with top executives (as well as the CEO) which you would never expect from an internship. I doubt I would have been able to have this level of impact or freedom at any other company.

    The company is shifting entirely and really moving in the right direction. After losing the old CEO, Meg Whitman, the company has been making great moves with John Donahoe

    Cons

    I really can't say there are many cons. They try so hard to give you a great experience and you are treated like one of the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People love John Donahoe and they are really pleased with the hiring of R.J. Pittman. The company is moving in the right direction and is really dedicated to innovating and changing the game. Keep it up!
