    Pros

    You get to work with smart and hardworking people, get to learn from managers and peers for both domain knowledge and general expertise.

    Respectful culture. Good work and life balance. Highly value product managers.

    Cons

    Not an exciting innovative company. No ideal pay. Too much re-org and strategy updates from upper leadership team. Loose attachment between team members and leadership team.

    Advice to Management

    Like the Agile initiative and product driven strategy. Less re-org will be preferred. Keep up with the high value on product manager/owner Agile style.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, compensation, bonus, employee perks

    Cons

    Cutthroat/blaming culture, certain departments or levels of employment are very affected by the .com culture in California so your job can turn into a high-stress, around-the-clock expectation. Very poor work-life balance, but depends on the manager/division/role.

    Advice to Management

    Cultivate better leaders and a more positive culture with better work-life balance. Compensating through great benefits packages does retain people for a time, but they're only there half-heartedly. Work to become a place that people truly love to work.
