    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at eBay full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Market-rate compensation and benefits, ability to work on software with millions of users, learn about older programming best practices

    Cons

    Old code base, often restricted from using modern coding best practices, most of the architecture has been decided on and built so a majority of the work is copy & pasting existing code, decisions are extremely risk-averse making them slow, contractors not treated well (all of the contractors on my team were laid off without notice)

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at eBay full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    They have great benefits and decent pay.

    Cons

    There is NO work/life balance, Metrics are EVERYTHING even when you are brand new to the floor. They will make you do jobs of other departments plus your own without explaining why they are making you do it, with little to no training with no pay increases or bonus ( normal training is usually 12 weeks). If you're looking to grow with the company it's all about who you know and no what you've done for the company, even if you're a top preformer. They give you a policy to enforce with customers but if you follow it and your customer gets mad you , you get counseling on what you should have done instead of what ebay trains you to do. So you are basically taking calls from a bunch of entitled people who will curse you out until you do what they want and you have to take it from the customers until you Manager (TL/Team Lead) decides to take over the call and only to just give the customer what they want. It's very much a thankless job .
