    I have been working at eBay full-time

    Pros

    A positive work environment that supports adversity. Great training and coaching staff. Company supports the local community and continues to develop ways to make the work place better.

    Cons

    Experience was not taken into account when pay was being determined. A professional with 15+ years experience should be getting paid more than kid fresh out of high school with no experience.

    Advice to Management

    Reevaluate how recruiting approaches pay for new hires. An experienced professional should be paid more than the kid fresh out of high school with little to no experience. A flat rate across the board for new hires in a certain positions regardless of experience only promotes attrition in the experienced talent you recruite. Pay is not everything but from what I have seen and heard you loose a lot of talented professionals because the compensation is lacking.

    I have been working at eBay full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Exciting technical experience, things are moving fast and the ability to get things done is rewarded. Telecommuting is an option in some groups, and encouraged in others. eBay is a global company so there isn't a singular view on any approach.

    Cons

    There is a "get it done at all costs" feeling which can negatively impact quality and foundational activities. You have to be protective of your work/life balance because the org operates 24/7 and if you're ready to engage someone is there to keep you busy. The pay is good, but not the top range great.

    Advice to Management

    At the top most layer be consistent, be ethical, be effective. At the mid range and down, communicate and collaborate. Stepping on each other is not the way to build a strong company.
