I have been working at eBay full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good company with great leadership. John Donahoe is the unsung hero of SV. The compensation is good and they are generous with Restricted Stock Units. Nice work environment.

Cons

People could be nicer. It can be a tense work environment with lots of stressed out people snapping at each other.

Advice to Management

Keep it up, you are moving in the right direction. I would love to see some of our long term projects come to fruition, I'm tired of my friends asking me when the digital wallet is coming.

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

    Pros

    Top-notch people. Enormous scale of operations. Attention to detail and operational excellence very much appreciated. Excellent project management and resource planning. Advanced technology. Adequate work-life balance. Competitive pay. Good, conveniently located offices. Somewhat flexible work schedule.

    Cons

    Rather strict top-down management. Natural conservatism due to the nature of the company business and scale of operations. Cyclical demand for engineering talent driven by "big bang" business initiatives. Highly political environment, natural for a large hierarchical organization. Consulting companies sometimes distorting the company culture by caring less than permanent employees about the long-term business consequences of their decisions.

    Pros

    I worked as an intern for PayPal. The intern program from eBay was one of the best in the industry. The people I worked with were some of the best in the industry. Extremely talented and knowledgable.

    Perks were one of the best in the country.

    Cons

    - PayPal is San Jose centric.They need to understand that talent is not location specific.
    - More communication to managers regarding making return offers.Some of them were caught unawares.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!
