    Pros

    Smart engineers doing the best they can. London engineering team has strong agile spirit, no nonsense lean processes, collaborative trusting attitude between engineers, PMs, CS, business. Developers are encouraged to speak up and challenge status quo. This works locally, but making a meaningful change outside your team is really hard. Overall ebay has old outdated technology and waterfall mindset. London team does their best to overcome obstacles and introduce best practices and newer tech. This quite often requires a lot of creativity and out of the box thinking. Great work life balance. No burnout risk. London engineering team is not at all political, well protected from corporate nonsense (where possible). Ebay has scale, global problems, diverse user base, high impact on people’s lives.

    Cons

    Your experience would strongly depend on the team you join. You may find really old school mindset at many teams at the main US office. And there are a lot of talented modern thinking engineers there too. A lot of shortsighted leaders at high level. Sometimes it seems that most of leaders care only about numbers although trying to speak about great value for humankind. I do personally believe ebay has a great purpose of empowering entrepreneurs and I think company would have had great potential if more authentic and brave leadership was in place. Huge engineering team, loads of dependencies breaking all the time in testing environment. Any dev tool require Jira ticket to get onboarded to. You have to wait and wait just to plug in simple monitoring to your app.

    I worked at eBay

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Old-fashioned planning Too much dependence on legacy systems Everything's built in-house, but nobody really knows how things work People are smart, but restricted by old tools and habits Reorganisations every year You only get recognised for the number of years spent there, not the impact you've made
