great environment, great opportunity and great connections made.
A lot of pressure, no pay and a lot of unnecessary stress.

Since eBay's acquisition of my employer, TCGplayer, a lot has changed, but there are still things about my job that I enjoy. I have many years of experience specializing in many different parts of the work we do, and enjoy the ability to do work I excel at, that adds a lot of value. Additionally, I have a lot of great coworkers that make the work environment fun and enjoyable to spend 40 hours a week at.
Regrettably, eBay has made a mess of their acquisition of TCGplayer in many ways. For a large company with a long history of purchasing other companies, the transition from to eBay's systems, pay structure, and benefits were very poor, despite having a dedicated transition team meant to facilitate these processes. Additionally, eBay was eager to continue TCGplayer's stance of poor cooperation with their democratically elected union, from running a highly aggressive anti-union campaign during the union election process, to delaying the bargaining processes with baseless legal appeals. Beyond this, our pay has been stagnant for the last 3 years, does not account for the cost of living or rising inflation. Additionally, we have seen a reduction in available paid time off since the eBay acquisition.1
