Doesn't Recommend
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Fun concept and business model
Great location in San Francisco
Nice website

Cons

Politics, back stabbing, hidden agendas, micromanagement
Poor processes in place
Unfriendly co-workers
Management is unfriendly and is always freaking out about delays and project schedules
Lots of politics and hidden agenda's between departments (biz, product, design, dev)
Terrible on-boarding and training

Advice to Management

Stop micromanaging
Negative feedback without ways to improve is just abuse.
Train your managers on how to deal with people (like Dale Carnegie or something)
Every project is not a 5 alarm fire
Don't say you want to "innovate" when you have some much bureaucracy that it will never happen
How can the president work offsite?

    Recommends
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Its a solid place to park yourself if you want access to solid training and process. Total compensation is fair, and eBay RSUs don't hurt.

    Cons

    Being a captive to eBay, there isn't as much autonomy as a start up. Fractured culture, as a result of the eBaysion.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose sight of Jeff Fluhr's vision. Keep it small and agile. Keep it fun for the smart and dynamic group of employees.

    Company culture is in dire need of change. Focus on ethics, trust, teamwork and integrity.
