    I worked at eBay as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great culture, flexible work hours and work is always good.
    My team was very welcoming and my Mentor helped me a lot and cleared lot of my basic questions during the on-boarding process. I was like a blunt knife when i started but I am quite deft with the web tech i was working with, all thanks to ebay.

    Cons

    The manager liked my work but since he didn't have an opening on his team I couldn't get return fulltime offer!

    Cons

    Sometimes work pressure is very high, may need to cut corners sometimes

    Advice to Management

    Involve the Quality engineers more in the decision making process. They have more domain knowledge and can lead to lesser pain in the development process. Also dont push them hard just to meet deadlines
