    I have been working at eBay full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Really supportive and fun team environment - globally and in London. Strategy team all ex McK/BCG/Bain, super bright and fun to work with (feels a bit like consulting but without crazy hours). Lots of exciting change underway, means you get to work on some pretty far out projects. Strategy serve as swat team to CEO, so get good traction in the business.

    Cons

    Lots of work with San Jose, means you get well acquainted with Virtual Meetings (often 5-10 screens at a time). Can sometimes result in late meetings but they're getting better at syncing time zones.

    Pros

    Open Culture and great teamwork; people willing to listen and respectful of diverse opinions. Real desire to improve customer support. Take employee survey seriously and aim to change based on input

    Cons

    Need to be more agile, move faster...plenty of competitors out there who are more nimble. Decide where to really compete in the market and go for it, sometimes all over the place

    Advice to Management

    keep listening to all your stakeholders, employees, customers, shareholders etc. - move faster.

    I worked at eBay full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Wonderful people, great colleagues who became friends as well
    Provides career opportunity in terms of relocation or moving across the other eBay owned business but one should still be proactive about own career
    Free fruits and breakfast provided in the office

    Cons

    The company is getting too big in size so things are moving slower. More hoops to jump through to get things executed.

    Pros

    Great on the cv when it's time to find your next job. I worked at eBay for nearly 5 years and it really helps when it comes to looking for your next job. eBay is still seen as one of the top Internet companies to work for and is known for only hiring top talent so having it on your cv makes you stand out.

    Also, it's a very interesting business to be in, right in the intersection between ecommerce and social media. Some would argue it was one of the first "web 2.0" companies and is still exploring that space.

    Cons

    BIG machine, loads of processes. As with all big companies there is a lot of processes at eBay to the extend that product development can take a very long time. If you the type that "just want to get things done" I'd argue that eBay is not for you.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the good work.
