Pros

cool tech, good people, lots of interesting projects

Cons

high expectations, lots of strategy churn, growing pains as company moves from small to large sized

Advice to Management

get your act together and realize that polishing the buttons on a feedback page and making the web commerce experience better is not going to save us for the long term. We need to be number 1 in mobile commerce.

    Current Employee - Product Manager in Campbell, CA
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    in general a great business idea that still works, great co-workers, global reach, interesting / challenging projects, work/life balance, social benefits, complex product (if you are a tech product guy), internal job opportunities (PayPal, Kijiji, StubHub, etc)., quite good cafeteria, its an interesting time to work at ebay at the moment - the company is at the edge

    Cons

    quarterly driven, no longterm vision (or changing it from year to year), too many internal reviews with upper management (doesn't feel as if you got real ownership of your area), MBA-heavy, too many re-organisations, medium pay, location of the offices (1h ride from SF)

    Advice to Management

    try to understand the product and the customer. don't look at wallstreet only.
