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

    Pros

    eBay is investing in the future and is a place you can really make a difference in whatever tour role. You really feel like you are making a difference by enabling connected commerce in all corners of the world. It's also a fun place to work and there are so many talented and friendly people.
    It's also a place no matter what your age, ethnicity or background that you feel respected. We need to continue to increase our diversity because it will only help us to better understand our richly diverse customer base. I love working at eBay as they are a company that is serious about creating an amazing place to work.

    Cons

    The buildings are all being renovated and it's quite noisy campus right now. It will be beautiful but it's not great right now. Get the cafeteria done ASAP!

    Advice to Management

    Be sure to have leaders week each year so we can stay connected and engaged as we grow. Continue to increase the diversity by gender, ethnicity, age (young and old) and thinking. Start a dog to work program!

    Pros

    Even though not known as google or apple, it is one of the best companies in the bay area:
    * benefits are competitive (4% 401K, ~10% bonus, good health insurance, ok RSU)
    * team events
    * possibilities to grow

    Cons

    * quality of employees not as high as other companies
    * not much innovation
    * a lot of friction and politics (normal...)

    Pros

    Amazing company culture, dynamic fast-paced environment.

    Pros

    Great Work life balance
    Employees are treated as humans and not resources/objects
    Considerably good pay for the work life balance it provides

    Not very aggressive strategy to place on top in the competitive market

    We need a groundbreaking business decision to re-position ourselves

    I have been working at eBay full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I love the individuals and there is high caliber across the organization. Pay is competitive for the market with full benefits, 401K, Employee Stock Plan Purchase (ESPP) and for salaried upper level positions Restricted Stock options on top of annual bonuses.

    Cons

    As with major companies communication needs to be improved and it can cause issues which could have been avoided. They have also had several years of layoffs in multiple groups where no one was prepared and the decisions which were made at a very high level did not always leave the best employees at the company.
