I worked at eBay full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

There is a ton of opportunity to do a lot of cutting edge work in highly scalable systems. The company is very ambitious, so if you can align yourself with a team that is growing, you can get promoted pretty easily.

Cons

The company does not have a strong visionary leading the way. Amazon has this and that is why has done so much better than eBay. They don't deal with acquisitions well.

Advice to Management

Find a strong visionary, give them a huge chunk of the company and follow them blindly!

    I worked at eBay full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people and work environment. Challenging work with very competitive pay. I always felt like I mattered to my supervisor and the company as a whole. If you had problems, they were very willing to work with you. i also had wonderful experiences getting top-notch training from the company. Wonderful job!

    Cons

    Sometimes you dealt with upset customers on the phone, but that's why they pay you the big bucks.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on keeping on!
