Recommends
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

cool name, employee discounts and worthless stock options

Cons

eBay promotes lifers only. Our company was acquired and only people that were at eBay prior have been promoted into senior positions in 2 years.

Advice to Management

Get back to basics. we are an auction site, let's bring the fun back. eBay is not another Amazon and should stop trying to be it.

    Pros

    People who work below VP are really trying to do a good job.

    Cons

    Management listens to no one, continues to hire in its own image. Does not want to hear from anyone who has different opinions.

    Advice to Management

    Start listening to your users. Stop changing the site for the sake of change. Stop making your users feel disenfranchised. They are your moneymakers and were your biggest fans. Your arrogance is your biggest downfall. Your users built your community and you ignore them at your peril. You clearly do not have the answers and you are not listening and are not asking the right questions.
