    Pros

    good engineers, quality is higher than what you perceive from outside
    excellent work in many groups
    great diversity
    work life balance is generally good

    engineering leadership in some groups is not great
    company long term direction is fuzzy
    being a market place only platform has disadvantages in current eCommerce market
    amazon, walmart are not market places only - they are store fronts and stores as well as marketplaces

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

    Pros

    They paid for me to finish my degree. The culture was great and there were opportunities to be a part of new projects.

    Cons

    They “promote” on a temporary basis with no raise in pay, then after a while of doing the extra work, you are put back into the position you were in to begin with.
    Getting my degree meant nothing to them, I finally left for another company that paid me more than double (no exaggeration, double!) and eBay doesn’t utilize the talent that they have. The company is sitting on a gold mine with the talent in their workforce, but they only promote based on who you are friends with instead of skill.

    Advice to Management

    Start to notice the skills and talents of your employees that you have doing “grunt work.” The best ideas at that company are not coming from leadership, they are your average Joe’s. eBay was a great place to work and I loved it during times of “Reboot.” But you won’t keep your talented workers if they aren’t being allowed to showcase their skills at work.
