Maternity leave benefits and support is far better at a technology company like eBay than at more traditional nontechnology companies.

    Flexibility all depends on your supervisor and whether or not they are supportive of flex hours to accommodate family responsibilities and needs.

Ebay is a great place to work as a woman but it could be improved in certain ways.

Maybe not. Depends on the orgranization within the company. Some organizations are more encouraging towards women leaders than others.

It is a great shame to have seen the departure of great women Product and Technology leaders from eBay in recent years. In spite of the company insisting it supports female careers, the numbers speak for themselves. There are no women on the CTO staff for the Core Product development team and only 1 woman leader on the leadership team of the New Product development group - and this in spite of great talent that was nurtured in the org through previous Executive regimes. It is no surprise then that eBay's company performance has dipped in recent years. Promotion practices are arbitrary and favor those who self-promote and shout loudest. Women are penalized for displaying the same behaviors as men. And so it's male-dominated executive staff have indexed toward solving for "customers like me" - in spite of the fact that the new global consumer is female. So it has a dwindling customer base that skews male in a market where the biggest spenders are women. For early and mid-stage career professionals, eBay pays well and has better maternity policies than most American companies - although in reality they have only just brought themselves inline with Google and Facebook to remain a competitive employer in Silicon Valley. Flexibility is very manager-dependent.

    3 paid / 1 unpaid

    eBay has only recently updated its maternity and paternity policies to bring inline with Google and Facebook - and only in response to the need to remain competitive in the Valley. There was seemingly no other galvanizing factor driving this change forward.

    Salaries and leveling urgently need to be equalized. Men are consistently given bigger titles and paychecks for doing the same work as women at lower grades.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. They pay well and recently modernized maternity policies. Dependent on manager, they are open to flexible hours. But opportunity is not equal in the Product and Tech functions and women are held to a much higher bar than men. This is evidenced by the CTO having an *all male* staff, in spite of several exceptionally talented technologists layered in the organization.

Its not a great place to work for men or women, but if you are a woman be prepared to play the game hard to get anywhere. If you don't fit into a certain archetype (in marketing/client services), you'll be passed over.

There is a macho culture in the technology org although that may have gone away with new leadership.

No work life balance. Not a lot of flexibility for working moms, including close colleagues of mine. Yes you can leave the office to pick up your kid, but you'll arrive home and be expected to answer 40 new emails and handle issues at all hours of the day and night and through holidays. Senior leadership tends to be dismissive of female perspective, despite customer data showing a lack of appeal to female customers. Very confusing, slow, and political promotion schedule.
