    I have been working at eBay full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fulfilling roles, with an opportunity to make a real impact on the livelihood of millions and the global economy. Product managers are getting broad scope and responsibilities and are empowered to make decisions and drive execution.

    Cons

    A meaningful emphasis on process at times, can tip the scale towards showing things are done more than getting things done.

    I have been working at eBay full-time

    Pros

    Company getting aggressive about rebound. As a result there is certain tension between the old-guard and the new. Marketing org is amazing and filled with a lot of great people.

    Cons

    Company is still driven by quarterly financials, and as a result, they tend to react too much. Also still seems addicted to reorgs as a means to solve problems, rather than sticking to a well-planned long-term strategy.

    I have been working at eBay full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good work-life balance
    Decent pay
    No micro-management
    Great work environment and amenities

    Cons

    Frequent organization changes disrupt project focuses and schedules.
    Teams build similar mediocre technical products, instead of team up to build true cutting-edge solutions. It is a waste of resource, and frustrates top talents.

    Pros

    Very good challenging work. Get to work with latest and greatest technologies.

    Cons

    Too many org changes, which causes lots of projects to go waste.

    Advice to Management

    With every reorg the vision of the company changes and lot of the work done until then becomes irrelevant. Allow some stability at the leadership level. No leader stays long enough to make an impact.

    Pros

    its a great place to learn, culture is fast paced and scrappy, I learned a ton here.

    Cons

    it could be political just like any big organisation, if you know how to deal with it, you will be just fine.

    Advice to Management

    keep the hierarchy out of mind and make flat organisations.

    I worked at eBay as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Agile is a culture their, so brace yourself. Great breakfast for free. Many social events. Lots of fun and flexibility when you need it sometimes. Depending on your what team you belong.

    Cons

    WPR needs some serious work redone to sit folks. Contract and contracts and contracts. retain talents by converting them to full time.

    Advice to Management

    Management could also be closer to teams. And if you are a geek some other realms of work are not so improve collaboration among teams and teammates.
