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.

    I worked at eBay Inc.

    Pros

    plenty of resources at your disposal and everyone is ready to help. The freedom to accomplish your tasks the way you want to, while having supervisors ready and willing to aid you in your work.

    Cons

    a lot of bureaucracy to get things done. Overemphasis on meetings. Need to have a meeting for every little thing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    allow for slightly more leeway in decision making, and offer more training to new hires. especially on the semantics involved with the day to day job
