    Pros

    Competitive salary
    Big bonus packages, including restricted stock units
    Great location

    Old-fashioned planning
    Too much dependence on legacy systems

    Reorganisations every year
    You only get recognised for the number of years spent there, not the impact you've made

    Advice to Management

    You can't solve a problem with the same mindset you created it with.

    Pros

    Generally kind people, offices are a bit dated

    Cons

    Management are at times too directive and many have been around for years and years. Insufficient effort on inclusion of people of diverse backgrounds at management levels. Only one exec from an ethnic background and female in the whole of the eBay Group (Stub Hub). Middle management lack training in working with people from different backgrounds and skillsets and struggle with integrating these resources into their teams and working methods.

    Advice to Management

    Train middle management more effectively on 'inclusion'
    Make a concerted effort to support the growth of ethnic candidates into exec positions (with merit taken into account)
