Doesn't Recommend
Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Smart people in general. New president making the right decision in my opinion. They tend to pay above market due to the lower brand reputation.

Cons

Internal conflicts are still present. Tension between Product and the Business is unhealthy. Everything moves very slow and turnover is high. Surprisingly hard to move around internally unless you've already built up the relationship.

Advice to Management

Crack down on the internal politics. Product vs BU needs to be resolved.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    - One of the few standing survivors of the dot com era
    - Perks of a large corporation - onsite gym, 1 month sabbatical after 5 years of employment, etc.
    - Location: SJ/Campbell preference over Menlo Park/Palo Alto area where every startup and tech co. lives
    - Easy and encouraged to move around the company

    Cons

    - Though no longer a start up still has a lack of processes
    - Like other large corporations - working culture: popularity contest and highly competitive
    - eBay's underpinnings of founder Omidyar's philosophies are not reflected in working culture
    - Senior leadership not diverse, gender or ethnicity
