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

    Pros

    eBay has a great culture, fantastic benefits, competitive salary, great teammates and is overall a great place to work

    Cons

    There is a high turn over when it comes to executive level positions which is not unique in the tech industry. This causes a lot of change and restructuring. In the 10+ years I've worked at eBay we've gone through 7 different reorganizations, all of which led to good employees losing their jobs

    More options to PTO faster.

    "Avoid it at all costs if you enjoy building software and ship things"

    I worked at eBay full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Good benefits (4% 401k match, paid maternity/paternity leave, tuition assistance, ride sharing reimbursement, work from home)
    - Ok pay (Average base salary, 10% annual bonus, stocks)
    - Work-life balance
    - Most people are very helpful and easy to work with

    Cons

    - Boring projects, menial tasks, little freedom, too many processes. Don’t let the location trick you, eBay is not a Silicon Valley company - this is a horrible place to work at as a passionate developer who want to build and ship things. If you chose to be a developer because coding is your passion, you’ll absolutely hate this place. But you’ll love it if you care most about retirement and benefits.
    - There is no diversity in engineering teams, 90% percent of people are from the same country. Company is known as an H1-B shop. People say yes to everything, because almost everyone’s life literally depends on eBay - they have to stay at the company for 8+ years to get their residency.
    - Old tech stack. Some teams adopted newer tech stack but they still use eBay's own front end framework for some reason (Marko). It’s fun to work with, but no one will recognize it on your resume. If you are a full stack or front end developer this is worrying.
    - Risk-averse, slow moving, bureaucratic
    - If you want to leave before the one year mark they will ask you to pay the full amount of sign-on bonus including taxes.

    Advice to Management

    - Engineering teams need more diversity
