Do what I say, not what I do
Sr. BSA (Former Employee), Salt Lake City, UTMarch 28, 2015
Management talks out of both sides of their mouth. A lot of politics and favoritism. Decision making is slow. Work/life balance is good.

Good work life balance with smart people around
Product Manager - Business Health Insights (Former Employee), Bellevue, WAMarch 24, 2015
Cons: Frequent senior management attrition, leading to reorgs / policy changes and long term strategy is still a little vague
eBay let me have an impact to thousands of people. eBay has the scale to better the lives of hundreds of millions of people, and for the most part they try to do just that. Good work-life balance and good compensation.

Challenged with high profile projects but not consistently. There are some amazing people at eBay and there is a lot to be done to get the company back on track.

Good benefits like free gym, free breakfast.

Starts out fun but ends in disaster DON'T BELIEVE EBAY'S LIES!
Customer Solutions Teammate (Former Employee), Austin, TXMarch 20, 2015
Pros: Benefits starting day 1 of employment
Cons: 30 minute lunches, get pulled aside and griped at about using the restroom.
I worked here for only a short period of time, and I was amazed with the stupidity, uptight, ignorance, insecurity, paranoia and other things this company showed me. I was always getting griped at for using the restroom too much. You know what, I'm not going to hold my waste just because it's "Distracting" to you. They put on this big show for all their new hires but when you have to use the restroom they get all uptight. DON'T BELIEVE EBAY'S LIES! It's not paradise like the people who work here say it is.

Work as you like when you like
Self employed (Current Employee), New JerseyMarch 16, 2015
Selling on e-bay is fun, I work when I want and don't work when I don't feel like, holidays are the most fun times since sales is good, after the holidays, sales goes down but it does balances with the profit made during the busy days.

Stressful but somewhat worth it for people with no college.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee), Brunswick, GAMarch 16, 2015
Pros: paid time off, great health benefits, opportunity for a lot of overtime during peak season.
Cons: stressfull at times, never sure about your job's security.
A typical work day consists of answering customer calls for a certain client which you have somewhat minimal training on, which can make things escalate very quickly. Learning as you go, its a sink or swim job. You do have resources that are somewhat organized but do not cover everything. The benefits are great, and if you ask for help, most of the time you get great help if you appear to be asking good questions. Its a very business oriented atmosphere, which means if they do not need you, well good-bye. Management is efficient and I have come across some very great individuals working here. The best part about the job is interacting with interesting people from diverse backgrounds. What I have learned from this job is to get my college degree as soon as possible and be the least expendable wherever I may work.

Innovative Company with Promise.
Director, Client Services (Current Employee), New York, NYMarch 16, 2015
Pros: young culture, great location, unlimited office snacks and drinks
Cons: ambiguity in job roles and lack of leadership at the mid-level.
eBay Enterprise is a young company that offers a culture of innovation.

The company is still trying to find its sea legs admidst acquisition and reorgs but it is definitely doing very innovative and game-changing marketing in ecommerce.

The most difficult part of working here is the ambiguity of job roles but this can also create opportunity for those who are more entrepreneurial.

eBay Enterprise / Magento is not a great place to work
Manager of Global Technical Support - Magento (Current Employee), Culver City, CAMarch 10, 2015
Pros: free food
Cons: work life balance is non existent
Magento (an eBay Enterprise Company) is located in the heart of Culver City. Its can take nearly 1 hour during peak traffic times to drive 12 miles to the location. Once you are there parking is limited and you either have to have an assigned space or fight to find a spot.

The Magento product is built on PHP. There are only 50,000 true PHP developers in the entire world (5,000 in the USA) which makes it extremely difficult to find talent to support the product. Leadership is short sighted and does not have plans to use a widely more universal language such as Java (10 Million Developers world wide).

Advancement seems to be very frowned upon in several departments. (Mainly due to the lack of talent)

eBay is also selling off eBay Enterprise which has also lead to nervousness in the workplace.

Leadership seems to believe that work should come first over family and creates a difficult culture for people with young families.
