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

    Pros

    The intern events were really cool and everyone at the company was really driven. The structure of the intern program was pretty robust, and the pay was good

    Cons

    My team wasn't that interesting. The project they promised me during the offer differed significantly from what I ended up working on.

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

    Pros

    Great colleagues and purpose. Global diverse workforce and business. Working hard to improve processes and making it increasingly easy to focus on doing your job. Free breakfast. Cool new building and discounted great tea / coffee. New cafe coming!

    Cons

    Lot's of building work. Too many older teams have processes they do not understand that add no value - just slow you down. Should not take so much work to do your job!

    Advice to Management

    The leadership seems to always want to paint a false picture of eBay. The real eBay is amazing - a platform to empower buyers and sellers worldwide. We are not Amazon or Walmart. We allow consumers to recycle unwanted products, we allow entrepreneurs to offer great deals to buyers and sell direct to a global market, we also allow traditional retailers to get online. That is amazing - just tell the world! The proportion of new / used sales is irrelevant - as is trying to pretend we are an Amazon. Celebrate what is unique - it is a powerful platform for good.

    I have been working at eBay full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company has made great strides with its hiring, benefits and employee experience elements over the last year. I have the opportunity to travel globally and work with very diverse leaders.

    Cons

    eBay is working diligently on connecting more consumers to its brand. We have a great technology platform for buyers and sellers. We are working hard to change consumers mindset about eBay being an 'auction' utility. We're more than that.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the focus on culture and people alive.

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

    Pros

    Great culture. Awesome co-workers. Flexible and open minded attitude.

    Cons

    Lack of aspiration among leadership and are not bold enough to take risks to push the company forward. The focus is pretty much on how to get best quarterly results and lacks a long term vision.

    Advice to Management

    Aspire for much larger growth than low single digits and take overhauling decisions to achieve them rather than focusing too much on quarterly expectations of shareholders.
