    Pros

    eBay offers good perks, cafes on site, travel, bonuses etc.

    Cons

    The company expects you to work long hours and weekends. They pay reasonably well but expect you to sacrifice family time for work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should consider providing more time off and allowing employees to work more standard hours, which would reduce stress.

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

    Pros

    I really liked the way eBay works for you to be happy inside the company: free breakfast in the morning, regular teambuildings and afterworks, yoga classes...

    Cons

    I don't really any cons at the moment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The upper management was very easy-to-access. Even in the open space, none of the bosses had a private office, which helps to feel close and involved.

    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.

    Pros

    There are opportunities to learn and work with a lot of smart people, however leadership is unaligned, cannot make decisions quickly that drag down the overall experience.

    Cons

    There is no work-life balance and the offices are very outdated. Projects can be strategized and worked on for weeks and then completely dismissed from management.
