    I worked at eBay full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    None at all - there is no work life balance. Please read the cons below.

    Cons

    Be aware. You'll sell your soul to the Church of eBay. I'm appalled and disappointed by the lack of professionalism and the huge divide between the fat cats at the top (leadership team) and the rest of the eBay employees. ***Beware of the Structure and the Huge Divide*** To cut costs, eBay doesn't pay benefits to employees like holiday time, sick leave, decent salaries, ebay stock, bonuses, etc... ebay hires...

    Working with passionate and talented people and in a company who is going through some exciting changes.

    Can be difficult to get anything off the ground or change any process due to structure and being part of a large global business. People management in certain areas needs improvement.

    I worked at eBay

    Pros

    Review is specific to eBay Australia: 1. Great benefits and pay. 2. Good office and workplace setting. 3. The company is working on some great products. 4. Good work-life balance. 5. Lunch sponsored by company on Tuesdays and some good outings done every year. 6. It's one of the most popular, mature and established online marketplaces on this planet. So there is lots to learn business-domain-wise. Every new...

    Cons

    Review is specific to eBay Australia: 1. Product delivery gets quite chaotic in the name of Agile. 2. Good amount of politics and favouritism. 3. Little to almost no process in place to review and revamp QA practices. Stuck and too comfortable with what and how they are working since years. Just because something works does not mean it can't be improved. 4. Higher priority given to just getting code shipped out...

    Advice to Management

    Advice is specific to eBay Australia: 1. Establish strict, modern engineering practices and processes for both development and QA teams. 2. QA team is part of the engineering team so set expectations from them accordingly. Please move on from expecting them to just execute test-cases, raising bugs, and signing off releases. Take a look at what quality engineering teams including QA managers in other tech companies...

    Pros

    They like to over-inflate the "pros," as they suggest workplace flexibility but they don't allow it to occur. The business is failing.

    Cons

    too many to name. In the States Ebay is a good place to work. Here in Sydney, the culture is terrible. If you think "beers on a Friday," is a good way to incentivize workers, then I as the next generation will run you out of town.

    Advice to Management

    Revamp your entire culture process. Isn't it troubling that you try exert due diligence for high caliber talent but you don't get any? Constantly hiring and re-hiring, burning through headcount, how can the Board be satisfied?
