Technology and flexibility. Work from Home is another good option provided to employees
Upper management does not communicate any decisions to lower level managers and this makes lower managers decision making process harder.1eBay Response7y

- Good salary and facilities
- No planning and adhoc releases always - No promotions, rewards or recognitions - Weak management team with bad decision making - Minimal work from home (1 day per month) in some teams - Very bad HR and Admin teams - Short releases and loads of work - No best practices followed

Autonomy in decision making Flexible schedule Great benefits
Management takes too much time to make critical decisions and then puts their employees under the gun to deliver in an unreasonable period of time.

Stable environment, great benefits, slower pace for those looking for more life/work balance
Non-collaborative, lack of vision & innovation, slow pace means things are not getting done. Culture is more about individual career development rather than making good decisions that impact the business.1eBay Response7y

Great pay and benefits provided at all levels. Very generous! Amazing HR folks! The CEO of the company is smart, passionate and sincere. John Donahoe is the real deal and a great leader. He may be the most approachable CEO I've ever met.
Lack of alignment from senior management and lack of decision making ability. Cafeteria's on-campus have good quality food but you have to pay for it and choices become boring after awhile. And due to parking issues (difficult to find parking), it is rare that anyone leaves campus for lunch.2

Great benefits and a relaxed environment for Silicon Valley.
Senior management incapable of making decisions. More time is wasted playing politics.2

G'day and thanks for your review! It's great to hear that you enjoyed your team and your benefits while you worked for eBay.

The environment is ever changing and provides a lot of stimulation.
Communication is often lacking and decision making is SLOW
