    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.
