Good company culture, too late to innovate and compete with Amazon
I have enjoyed being part of ebay for over 4 years, but observed very poor decision making by executive teams. Now, ebay appears to be trying to monetize even its organic search and entire experience by selling advertising and rankings to the highest bidder, not the best products/sellers. Finding literally any place on a buyers screen to advertise, and it’s just getting worse as ebay diminishes it brand, and continues to push lame Advertising upon its buyers.
Amazon’s 150M investment in FBA and predictable logistics for buyers disrupted things, and Prime delivery made Amazon easy and convenient for buyers. Ebay was too slow, clumsy, and late with EGD and other half-hearted attempts to compete
