    Pros

    Lot of opportunities to relocate to San jose. Has got an excellent Analyst leadership development program which provides 2 yrs program on a rotational basis across the world and different functions.

    Cons

    Slow in decision making as too many stakeholders involved. Promotions depend upon several factors apart from your hard work on the job.

    I have been working at eBay Inc. full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    1. Lot of Free time and can invest in self-development
    2. Decent compensation and Bonus

    Cons

    1. Execs are big time losers. Don't make and can't make any decisions
    2. No space for discussions and bright Ideas. Always very risk-averse
    3. Don't build real products but just chase money
    4. Product management doesn't exist
    5. Old-timers are the biggest bane to this place. They stick around doing nothing
    6. Lack of clarity, lack of aspirations from leadership and middle management also

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move to a Bank or Insurance company and let Technologists manage this place.

    Pros

    Good facilities
    Treat the employee well and offer good perks

    Cons

    Learning curve in terms of new technologies is very little
    Work-life balance is poor

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Must concentrate more on the employee by giving training etc.
    Also should be much more flexible with internal team movement. And international team movement should be relaxed. This would help employee retention.
