    Cons

    1. The company went through big transition. 2. Overall, the company is not a technology company rather a business company.

    Pros

    You get to lead a project during your internship from start to end - that is amazing! And you also get the opportunity to contribute to other ongoing projects. If you have the motivation and interest, you get to witness different types of studies and learn about various user-testing methods and tools on the go!

    Cons

    You have to be very efficient and move fast. This is not necessarily a con, but if you don't have enough experience in conducting user studies independently, you may struggle and not enjoy the experience!

    Pros

    Company has very good values and follows them most times. Culture is warm and open meaning you can learn a lot if you want to. Good work-life balance ensures you don't have to sacrifice personal development. Peers are usually extremely qualified and smart (in analytics community). Leaders can be trusted to keep employee best-interests when making decisions.

    Cons

    Culture can be too relaxed at times impacting execution. Product isn't as high-end compared to other tech companies which can make you cynical.

    Advice to Management

    Since eBay operates in the same space as other tech giants, taking steps to make eBay as 'cool' as other places will impact employee productivity positively.

    Pros

    Great collaborative, casual, culture. Employees are nice, you work with talented people. Work/life balance is good as most people leave the office by 6PM.

    Cons

    Employees can get treated as actual head count rather than employees. Lots of shifts in the company. No clear direction from upper management. Difficult to get promoted. Given that it's a huge company, must be able to play the corporate politics in order to succeed.
