    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    eBay quickly lost credibility in 2008 as it's very clear the company is only trying to become the worlds largest fixed price flea market from hell. When was the last time anyone ever talked about the fun eBay we knew for years. Does anyone read email from our members anymore? Has any Senior Management ever called anonymously to the eBay support teams and talked to our brilliant inexperienced team members from Mumbai. Customer Support is in a downward spiral trying to run a call center that is broken at every angle from nobody knowing how to address customers properly to technology that don't work

    Cons

    Data that really doesn't tell the story of the community only what will help a high score on the Quarterly IPPR. No indepdent review of quality of the work or the benefits to the customer. Waste of money, time, and projects that make no sense in a true turnaround. Our Community team has been eliminated and now your expert to help you is from Mumbai with no feedback and no computer and only knows eBay as a paycheck

    Advice to Management

    It may be to late. I'm glad I left this year before the SS eBay Titanic sinks.

    Pros

    The people are nice..San Jose is a good city and the work is good. The company has a huge global presence and the website exists in many different countries in several different languages. Also, with the acquisition of Skype and PayPal, there is a lot more work that can be done to improve the current condition at eBay.

    Cons

    the company is on the decline and the stock prices are plunging. Some of the policies adopted by the company are not going down well with the users and thus the user base of eBay is falling.

    Advice to Management

    try to get eBay back on top and do it soon!!
