Former Employee - Top Seller Account Manager in Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)
Former Employee - Top Seller Account Manager in Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)
Recommends
Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Recognisable global brand that gets mentioned quite a lot in the media and in TV programmes & shows
Good standard benefits package plus
A 4 week sabbatical is awarded to every employee upon completing 5 years of employment with the company
Education Re-imbursement programme

Cons

A large proportion of consumers still perceive eBay has a 'flea-market'
Work-Life balance gets much more difficult once you move from being a customer solutions agent to the next level, i.e. Support Specialist have to do 50+ hrs/week and account managers the same
Many of the Team Leaders, Supervisors and Middle Management do not have a 3rd level degree and seem to lack the academic capability to make sound decisions.

Advice to Management

Ensure that all leaders no matter what level have a minimum of a Bachelors Degree as it is important that they understand about strategic management
