I worked at eBay Inc.

Pros

Great opportunities to learn and interface with a global team. Generally, people are smart and work together to get results. Campus culture is good as is the riverside location in Richmond.

Cons

High concentration of management consultants, so a lot of pointless Powerpoint presentations. Richmond is a bit far from central London, so may be a con for some.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Less short-term focus on quarterly results and invest in the future like Amazon.

    I have been working at eBay Inc.

    Pros

    despite the 15 yrs of history (relatively long for an ecommerce company), there still are a lot of opportunities if you seek for them.

    Cons

    As the other big corporations are, eBay is also a very political place. A lot of organizational changes can make the process much inefficient too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some managers and directors live day by day just playing politics -- this definitely isn't motivating for a lot of employees.

    eBay wastes too much time on politics and reorgs

    I have been working at eBay Inc.

    Pros

    The people are great for the most part, and the work life balance is fantastic! The quality of your management is a crapshoot, lots of smart people but not always great people managers.

    Cons

    The organization is dysfunctional and wastes a ton of time and resources every year in reorgs and politics. The company is only productive 6 months out of the year at best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend less time doubting your strategy every 3 months and put more emphasis on execution and give it time to succeed or fail instead of pulling the plug halfway through.
