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

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

    Pros

    Even though not known as google or apple, it is one of the best companies in the bay area:
    * benefits are competitive (4% 401K, ~10% bonus, good health insurance, ok RSU)
    * team events
    * possibilities to grow

    Cons

    * quality of employees not as high as other companies
    * not much innovation
    * a lot of friction and politics (normal...)

    Pros

    Amazing company culture, dynamic fast-paced environment.

    Cons

    Depending on position, stability could be a concern. Re-orgs and layoffs happen more often than I was comfortable with.
