    I worked at eBay (Less than a year)

    Pros

    free bagels on Wednesdays, free coffee,tea,sodas,Le Croix water

    Cons

    slow hiring process. False promises. Once hired everyone there will tell you it's the greatest place on earth, and that eBay really cares about their employees. In truth, they could not care less. VERY VERY high turnover. They fired 5 people in my training class for nothing...at least nothing serious.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating people like crap....be human, stop lieing about what a great place eBay is. Let people know in advance Team Leaders will most likely fire you if you rent PERFECT right off the bat.

    Pros

    Great exposure to technology and use cases related to big data. It helped me learn the basics and prepare myself for my next job

    Cons

    It's a brand that's going sideways and if you're on the business side, you want to be thinking hard about how you move to you're next role.

    It's a dynamic workspace that constantly keeps you engaged in your work. You typically have room to grow with eBay.

    I worked at eBay full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    the pay/stock/bonus is competitive, as are their benefits. Many opportunities for lateral movement.

    Cons

    very limited opportunities for promotion or management. The joke is: "the only way to get promoted at eBay is to leave the company then come back" which is sad. Goals are rarely met, resources are ALWAYS scarce, re-orgs occur several times a year, and layoffs happen often. Managers are not trained very well, they're often just top performers who are given a group of people to manage, which we all know rarely turns out well. Lots of churn as a result, which contributes to a culture that is not very firmly set in principles or values, which contributes to a lot of short-term ladder climbing.

    Pros

    The call center environment is extremely fun and the peer/managerial support is awesome. If you hate working in a call-center, this is still worth a try. I've never had experience and I loved this place.

    Cons

    Austin location is growing, but there still aren't very many promotions available.

    Advice to Management

    Create more mid-level positions. You're doing everything right as far as training and development, but people also need advancement opportunities.

    Pros

    The culture here is great, so many good engineers to work with.

    Cons

    It's a technology company but sometimes it seems they forget about that when taking decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Take engineering into account when taking decisions, sometimes we need to rework or we ended up working on features that are not really important and then they never see the light wasting resources.
