    I have been working at eBay Inc.

    Pros

    Smart, passionate people. Totally self motivated and driven.
    Network of intelligent and experienced people all around the world.
    Great international opportunities. Generous travel.
    Interesting strategic questions and impact to Australian market. Everyone is plugged into it.
    Collaborative environment.

    Cons

    Weak senior management role models in regards to expertise and experience. There is a lot of talk about experience, but not a lot of direction or action.
    Consultant mentality. Everyone thinks they are strategic. Execution and delivery suffers.
    There is an obsession with profile and exposure.
    Favouritism from the top. Obvious imbalances. It is definitely easier for some than others.

    Has potential, but decision-making centralised in US and hesitation in product innovation is holding eBay back.

    Pros

    Actually quite fun work environment, people were good to work with and helpful.

    Cons

    Too centralised with many major decisions / bottlenecks having to come from US headquarters. Also not bold enough on innovation, and no visible technology leader - plenty of consultant / powerpoint types.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be bolder with technology innovation - and innovation means going beyond just changing the layout of our search results page....
