    I have been working at eBay full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    There are some really good teams to work for (which I am in). They reward hard work well. They have great learning resources like trainings, conferences etc Easy to switch between teams and gain good knowledge of whole domain

    Cons

    Most of the decisions are made based on bureaucracy, rather than technology. ebay management loves rewriting projects again and again. There are directors and VP's who make their teams work on certain already existing projects just to keep their ego Everything moves like a snail. It takes forever and ever to make any decisions They still use technologies like clearcase (Mother of all torture development tools)

    Advice to Management

    Please stop making decisions based on politics. Use a little bit of common sense to understand why you are writing new project which are already existing and new one you are writing is not making anything better than existing ones.
