    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.

    I worked at eBay full-time

    Pros

    Great training and benefit information. Benefits are very good.

    Cons

    Inflexible with scheduling, telecommuting was not an option across the board. Micro management.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of punishing employees for longer call time, focus more on the context and customer service that is being given.

    Pros

    Interesting problems to solve. Maximum flexibility in work hours and location. Great culture of intense work and fun stuff.

    Cons

    Focus only on ecommerce. Not a lot of options if ecommerce is not your thing.
    No other cons area so just filling words to get to 20.

    Advice to Management

    Take more risk to achieve higher growth. Not much for me to say in this area so just filling words to get to 20.

    Pros

    Great culture over all, people first, flexible, challenging work and cutting edge technology.

    Cons

    Leadership has changed away from inclusive and supportive to pushing and less human. Moving toward grinding the people, less inspiration and trust.
