    Hope this separation works

    Former Intern - Software Engineer in San Jose, CA

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

    Pros

    I interned at eBay. Good pay, work-life balance, etc. It was easy to get along with everyone and people were ready to help

    Cons

    Not all products are nice and innovative. Few new products are innovative and exciting to work but some old products are just maintained and if you get into such a team, there is not much to learn.

    I have been working at eBay Inc. full-time

    Pros

    Super smart people, everyone really believes they're doing the best for customers, great benefits, good culture, my work/life balance has been phenomenal until recently.

    Cons

    Inability to make decisions, risk aversion is rampant, too many people jockeying for position, becoming very political, little trust in emploees to make decisions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be as transparent as possible about upcoming changes, rumors are effecting morale, allow decisions to be made at lower levels or nothing will get done
