I have been working at eBay full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Fast-paced, smart and friendly people, nice campus.

Cons

Long hours, no upper management support. Decisions that affect UX are made by executives with little to no user data behind them.

Advice to Management

Hire the best, pay them well, and let them do what they do best.

    I worked at eBay full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are some brilliant people, pay is competitive. Depending on the project assigned there can be some interesting problems to solve

    Cons

    There is a fair amount of corruption. Promotions are based on friendships and not necessarily merit

    I have been working at eBay full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great balance of work/family life. Ability to take on meaningful projects - not overly-rigid. Exciting time to be a part of rebounding growth and definite vibe of change on the campus. Dynamic - keeps you on your toes. And I'm a fan of the salad bar to boot.

    Cons

    Can definitely be slow-moving, especially for a tech company. Serious need for some infrastructure overhaul in many ways (but in the works).

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to make hard calls to take short term losses in favor of long-term strategy.
