    Pros

    Lots of good people, but frequently in inconsequential positions

    Cons

    Too many incompetent people in key positions. Too much terriorialism and an "us versus them" attitude between different groups. Too many over-hyped projects that don't add to the bottom line

    Advice to Management

    Really invest in infrastructure, customer service and technology, don't just talk about it and then cut headcount and funding for everything that matters

    Pros

    successful ("up and to the right") division of eBay, good opportunities for those with ambition. politics are not too bad, and the majority of people want to do the right thing.

    Cons

    long hours, excessive demands in some areas of the company. often feels like paypal is still the tail being wagged by the dog (ebay), even though paypal, as most successful area of company, should have more say in decisions, and more funding.

    Advice to Management

    when considering improvements or enhancements, take a 1-to-3 year view of things, not 3 to 6 months.
