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

    Pros

    Fulfilling roles, with an opportunity to make a real impact on the livelihood of millions and the global economy. Product managers are getting broad scope and responsibilities and are empowered to make decisions and drive execution.

    Cons

    A meaningful emphasis on process at times, can tip the scale towards showing things are done more than getting things done.

    I have been working at eBay full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you're self motivated, there is a ton of opportunity at eBay. There is a lot of work to do and projects are available in all departments. I've been able to add so many tools to my belt purely by volunteering. At other companies, the scope of your role is much more defined limiting your chances to make huge strides in your skill set and career.

    Work life balance is great. Most people leave by 5 or 6 and the work from home policy is very lenient. Work is also very friendly towards parents. eBay offers a paid sabbatical every five years of work and you see people on many teams going on their second sabbatical.

    Salary is competitive and the ESPP and 401k program are nice to have.

    Cons

    The biggest con is that there is a real culture issue. There are a ton of unmotivated and untalented staff. You could describe the attitude as defeated. Whether its related to processes that take too long, the feeling of an insurmountable disadvantage to Amazon, or a lack of grit, there is a negative skew to the general attitude of the staff. eBay has been putting more emphasis with the employee satisfaction surveys but there is ways to go.

    Equity portion of comp falls behind the competition.

    Promotions can feel like it's more tied to length of tenure rather than performance.

    Advice to Management

    Find people who want to build a great service and get rid of the people who just go through the motions. Invest in the next generation who strive for greatness rather than middle managers who build decks. Hold people accountable and sniff out the BSers.
