    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.

    I worked at eBay Inc. full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Excellent office with all amenities. Really nice place to work.

    Cons

    Restricted technology and a crappy web development framework (V4)
    No Adoption of open source (at least when I was there, dont know how it is now).
    Work here few years, you are locked, very hard (not impossible) to stay in touch with the outside world.
    Seriously Work life Imbalance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring consultants. Please strip off that model.
