    Great place to work

    Member of Technical Staff I Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    San Jose, CA

    ProsGreat customer impact. Great management, team work is well appreciated and a good place to develop people and technical skills.

    Sometimes you reach career flats where you want to consider moving around, but depending on manager, its relatively easy to change teams. Lots of opportunities within eBay and Paypal.

    Relatively new tech stack completely based on open source standards.

    ConsDepending on your area, a lot of domains will end up with similar work.

    Massive legacy code base and redundant functionality on site.

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

    Good people, tedious work

    Taxonomy Consultant (Former Employee)
    San Jose, CA

    ProsGreat people and facilities. Company seems more focused than the first time I worked there. I felt like I was actually contributing to something.

    ConsNot enough training. It's sink or swim in a very deep pool of information. Work ambiance not great. Not enough cubicles, loud neighbors, meetings breaking out spontaneously next to desks, too-warm temperatures

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore training. Don't just leave people to fend for themselves.

    Great work environment but what's the big picture?

    Member of Technical Staff II, Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    San Jose, CA

    ProsLove my coworkers and going into work every day. Lots of interesting work and technical management open to new ideas and directions. It has ambitious technical plans and is finally starting to adopt open-source genuinely. Depending on your area in the company, there is a real emphasis on work-life balance. Many employees are in the 5-10 year range, which for a valley company speaks to it's comfort (both good and bad).

    ConsMany areas lack sufficient management, either due to attrition or difficultly hiring candidates playing at our level.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWe have to tackle our technical debt head on!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
