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

    Pros

    The company is full of smart and hardworking people. Most are willing to go above and beyond to get the job done. The atmosphere and dress code are casual, and it's okay to work from home if you need to. Twenty-five cent snacks are also nice.

    Cons

    This used to be a great place to work. The clients list was quite impressive. The employees were fun-loving. Successes were celebrated, and employees truly felt like they were direct contributors. Training and development was a major focus, and growth within the company felt like it was always a possibility. Everyone was always overworked, and we all knew that needed to change, but with such a high morale, it was still a good place to work. I would have easily given it a 4-5 star rating.
    That all changed in early 2011, after the company officially became a part of GSI. Layoffs ensued, the company lost its stride, and the e-Dialog culture disappeared. The already overworked staff became more overworked, and trust in upper management disappeared as people began to worry about their jobs.
    Middle management has tried to bring up morale trying to make people feel informed, but with on-going changes in processes, structure and leadership, it's clear that middle management is in the dark and upper management has no idea what to do next. An environment that was once very team-oriented has now become one where it's every man for himself, with constant tension and finger-pointing. Clients are leaving, and the employees that aren't getting laid off are leaving on their own, one by one. It's a sinking ship.

    Advice to Management

    eBay is known to be a good place to work, so one can only hope that now, as e-Dialog and GSI become more enveloped into eBay, things will turn around quickly.
    In the meantime, the folks at the top need to do a better job of keeping everyone else truly informed, and make sure that employees feel more valued and less like they could lose their job at any moment.
