    I worked at eBay full-time

    Pros

    Great culture and opportunity to grow, move around in roles/teams, etc.

    Cons

    Tough competition and many priorities.

  2. "Great employee culture, management apparatus needs work"

    I have been working at eBay full-time

    Pros

    eBay has a great culture- it values its employees and its customers. There is a strong work ethic, but also a sense of team. I like my co-workers and I like my work.

    Cons

    There is a strong pressure to present data analysis in a rosy light for senior management. Projects/experiments are rarely presented as a failure. Individuals are promoted to management for their work ethic and ability to present projects in a positive light- not for their ability to manage people. For these reasons eBay's future is uncertain.

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

    Pros

    Great possibilities, great opportunities, great people

    Cons

    Slow to make meaningful change, somewhat driving with blinders on

    Advice to Management

    You do realize every time you go through a cycle of layoffs, you encourage the people you wish to keep to leave. Or maybe that's the plan?

    I worked at eBay full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The mobile team was tight and worked well within an otherwise really old fashioned company.

    Cons

    The infrastructure and technology for the backend was antique. The upper management was not suited to a product that only does software. I'm not sure having a leader that has zero technical ability is the right mix for a software only company.

    Advice to Management

    1) Ditch Advertising as a revenue source. It makes more people than that it generates revenue.
    2) Stop hiring non technical people to lead the company, CEO included.
    3) Be bold in changing the corporate culture. There is no reason for a software only company to be mired in antique technology stacks.

    Its high time to have wider view and expand!
