I worked at eBay Inc.

Pros

Great opportunities to learn and interface with a global team. Generally, people are smart and work together to get results. Campus culture is good as is the riverside location in Richmond.

Cons

High concentration of management consultants, so a lot of pointless Powerpoint presentations. Richmond is a bit far from central London, so may be a con for some.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Less short-term focus on quarterly results and invest in the future like Amazon.

    I worked at eBay Inc.

    Pros

    I was with eBay a good few years and saw many changes and much growth. Overall I though the ethos and the values of the company strong, set by management. Also, there was a lot of time to be had 'for you' on a personal level. It was full of 'clever people' and the best MBA I NEVER had to pay for (to quote a fellow ex employee). It was good times...

    Cons

    Either you are favoured and on the fast track to the top - or not. Some of the promotions for some staff were a total mystery - how did that happen. At times, process was more important than result, as was the presentation.

    I have been working at eBay Inc.

    Pros

    The most interesting internet business to work on and the most complex one.

    Cons

    Scarce tech and geek culture, too many MBAs without passion for the internet.
    Few real leaders. Still too much politics for an internet company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    love the internet, use the site, love the internet. meet your community.
