Pros

Well defined Structure. Lot of opportunities to learn and grow. Overall a great place to work!

Cons

Technical support/team is outsourced to IBM. It is highly disorganized, unprofessional and also not technically competent. management takes all possible initiatives, but still unsuccessful.

Advice to Management

Take control of your Vendors and ensure they deliver what they promise!!

    I worked at eBay as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's a really nice place to work in that the hours are reasonable, the environment is pleasant, the work opportunities are varied and interesting, the people are mostly friendly, the cafeteria is decent. There's plenty of money to do what needs to be done and at least while I was there it is thriving.

    Cons

    The company is crippled by a cash cow that brings in money no matter what you so, so it doesn't matter what you do. There is no reward for innovation and no penalty for mediocrity. The environment is highly political. If you want to rise in responsibility, you need to be good at that game. If you just want to do your job (and do what you are told), it's a very simple and easy place to be. If you want to be bold, innovative and effective, I would go elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Not everyone with fancy credentials is as smart as they think they are. Not everyone without credentials is as ignorant as you think they are.

    I have been working at eBay full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Interesting, fast moving, good benefits, chances to move up in the company if you are favored.

    Cons

    Very biased in favor of gay community who get promoted even when they aren't the best workers, lack of communication with employees, deceitful behavior of management. Micromanagement to extreme.

    Advice to Management

    Be up front and honest with employees, be fair with judging performance of all employees, improve management
