    Pros

    Very nice staff, everyone made me feel very welcome. The add-ons were a big bonus - free food, drinks, work days out. A very nice office in Richmond.

    Cons

    In terms of the workplace itself, there were very few cons. The people, place, and general environment was very positive, and everyone seemed to enjoy working there.

    Advice to Management

    If there was one thing I would advise, it would be to start a UK graduate scheme. EBay is losing out to pulling in the hottest young talent because they are not recruiting skilled graduates.

    There is a lot of freedom and the impact you have is significant. The people are amazing.

    Cons

    There company is too complex and super-lean in terms of resources it makes it hard to deliver things or you need to work some long hours.

    Advice to Management

    You're going the right direction, just speed it up a bit.

    Pros

    Healthy company culture, healthy working environment, equal opportunity.

    Cons

    Nothing. Really enjoyed working there.

    Advice to Management

    Think more carefully about acquisitions as this can impact many employees and their lives. I was part of an acquisition, very happy to be part of eBay and then we were sold off again. It feels like being split from amazing adoptive parents and being thrown back into the system.

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

    Pros

    eBay UK has a very collaborative culture, people are smart and treat each other with a lot of respect. Working hours are very flexible, working from home is widely used. Great focus on people development.The performance management is very transparent - you sign up for targets that make sense and you aren't crucified if external events mean you missed some of them. In my time I changed teams and areas quite a lot which means it never got boring so far.

    Cons

    It's a big company with the headquarter in the US and so sometimes processes seem slow in the international offices. you need patience.


  10. "Great company to work for- relaxed culture. Not too corporate."
