    I worked at eBay full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good work-life balance; resources for career development. Generally polite and respectful culture with passion for customer satisfaction.

    Cons

    Overly complex organization with 3 people doing the same job in 3 different departments. Too little cross-polination between departments.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce headcount - only way to simplify the org and truly give employees a sense that they own what they're doing/ contributing

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

    Pros

    I had a great interviewing experience because the recruiter, hiring manager, and trainer told me that I was going to be a great addition to the team. This turned out to be a huge lie! They were nice to me during the interview but turned into horrible people when I started. Everything was a scam!

    Cons

    -No proper training. Actually more like no training at all. You are expected to be psychic! My trainer was always gone, never gave me a proper answer when I asked questions
    -They fired me the day after I told my manager I was treated badly
    -They constantly put people down by telling them how others on the team are better than you
    -They imply that you "never work" even though you DID work, but you were not properly trained.
    -My trainer said rude and derogatory comments towards me
    -I was pretty much treated like garbage here.
    -DO NOT WORK HERE! I work at Facebook now, and it has been heaven compared to this place!

    Advice to Management

    Please treat people with respect
    Provide PROPER training

    I have been working at eBay full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    New vision and culture are paving the way for the new ebay. Devin is leading with heart and thoughfulness, which help set the tone for others to follow. New in this past year are ways for employees to voice and help to create positive change. Sabbatical program still embraced which is a benefit not seen across other companies - even those with an "unlimited" vacation policy.

    Cons

    The time it takes to get things done could use some improvement. Changes are coming, but also seem to be taking the long road. While the sabbatical is a wonderful perk, 5 years is a stretch when annual PTO is on the low side.

    Advice to Management

    Keep thinking new/fresh, while asking for input along the way. ebay's got some really great employee feedback mechanisms in place now - let's use those to help select and quickly implement changes that will make our employees more productive.

    First and foremost, thank you so much for your review. You offer some great insights for eBay as a whole. We certainly hope you enjoyed an awesome sabbatical experience too! We are glad to hear that... More
