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

    Pros

    Corporate culture emphasizes risk-taking and autonomy, but without the intra-organizational competitiveness inherent in other corporate cultures.

    Cons

    As far as web companies go, eBay is an old one, and carries a lot of organizational and technical baggage.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to invest in the future, continue innovating, and understand that what's working well for the costumers today might not work for them tomorrow.

    Pros

    - Excellent treatment to employees
    - People are exceptionally smart and friendly
    - The business is huge, so there are tons of opportunities to learn

    Cons

    - It is not moving at the same speed as the market. Hence there is a lot of pressure to catch up
    - Management is merely coming from a retail background. Which makes the whole company run as a boutique as opposed to a tech giant
    - People who progress are normally the ones who speak beautifully. Regardless of the quality of their work.

    Advice to Management

    I guess: learn to manage.
