    I worked at eBay full-time (More than 3 years)


    eBay is investing in the future and is a place you can really make a difference in whatever tour role. You really feel like you are making a difference by enabling connected commerce in all corners of the world. It's also a fun place to work and there are so many talented and friendly people.
    It's also a place no matter what your age, ethnicity or background that you feel respected. We need to continue to increase our diversity because it will only help us to better understand our richly diverse customer base. I love working at eBay as they are a company that is serious about creating an amazing place to work.


    The buildings are all being renovated and it's quite noisy campus right now. It will be beautiful but it's not great right now. Get the cafeteria done ASAP!

    Advice to Management

    Be sure to have leaders week each year so we can stay connected and engaged as we grow. Continue to increase the diversity by gender, ethnicity, age (young and old) and thinking. Start a dog to work program!
