    I have been working at eBay full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    eBay offers opportunity to the world that many other jobs don't. This is buffed by the way they appear socially when enabling global commerce. Working here is good and the pay, stock, health coverage, and additional benefits (like a full Month off of work after working 5 years) are wonderful.

    Cons

    A fair share of bureaucracy whenever attempting to run with a guise of empowerment. They like to allow you to be expressive and creative, but on a retractable dog leash.

    Advice to Management

    Trust the grass roots. They build your replacements.

    Pros

    Great culture, tons of opportunity for growth and so many great benefits. Ebay cares so much about it's employees.

    Cons

    There is lots of competition for opportunities and with any call center, there are complex calls and difficult messages. This is a really fast paced environment, so if you are good with that you'll be great with ebay.
