    I worked at eBay Inc. full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great company with a great philosophy of service. Very team oriented and innovative in thought. Excellent people development. Fun work culture. Executive leadership is dialed-in to their business but not to their service center weaknesses.

    Cons

    Poor communication skills in senior management. Lack of organization and communication between cross-functional teams. Favoritism is rampant at this company. Cliquishness is common here. There is a certain group of people that are more likely to be promoted because of their shared belief system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more clarity and transparency about your business needs.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, the company is always feeding you, okay benefits, support is good

    No sick leave, vacation time is also sick time. Hire new leadership with no experience and leads the team on a downward spiral

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire from within

    I have been working at eBay Inc.

    Pros

    There are some amazing people at eBay and there is a lot to be done to get the company back on track!

    Cons

    Your experience and opportunities are very dependent on your manager and unfortunately there are very few good managers at eBay. People play favorites, which results in many people in management positions that are simply not qualified.

    Pros

    They constantly give you an opportunity to learn by handing you big projects even as an intern. They provide housing and celebrate interns.

    Not so much cons as far as I've seen.

    I have been working at eBay Inc.

    Pros

    This used to be the greatest place to work. People were passionate about the work and it showed in their commitment to doing the job right.

    Cons

    Recent events have eroded trust in leadership and the belief that the company is designed to do good in the world. People are promoted based on their ability to curry favor with the boss, rather than execute well in their role.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to what made eBay great. Take a hard look at Pulse results and don't accept your directs' slick explanations and careful framing of the negative indicators.

    I have been working at eBay Inc. full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    eBay has the scale to better the lives of hundreds of millions of people, and for the most part they try to do just that.

    Cons

    Because eBay is so large and so structured, with so many different businesses and business models, getting things done on a timely basis can be challenging

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to simplify the product offering and the management structure that supports those products.
