That’s the future I see for eBay, and once a faded company gets bought by private equity, anything resembling a good workplace is out the window. It’s all about squeezing profits and spending bare minimum. Customers will be even more unhappy because... read more

Topics regarding layoffs at eBay Inc.
I quit working for eBay after sitting in long executive meetings, where management basically plotted ways to farm more and more money from Sellers, without any actual knowledge or research to show why they where doing it. They would 'create' market... read more
Now I see what that was all about. eBay did a little preemptive announcing ahead of the quarterly results report. I guess they thought announcing layoffs (which both shareholders and investors love as easy money-savers) would stop the stock from... read more
Major layoffs are happening right now, San Francisco is being hit hard. From what I understand, this will continue until the end of the week. I really wish they would do it all in one go, stress of having to deal with this for days is not going to be... read more
EBAY has no strategy aside from firing talented people to spend money on entry level customer service roles. The Sydney office now resembles an Indian call centre.
Anybody knows if the layoffs were limited to last week or can we expect some to spill over into this one as well? I'm asking specifically for the U.S.
in 2014 layoffs, in 2015 they canned india, then in 2016 they canned remote workers, In 2017 they went after contractors, now in 2018 they are after the only thing left, full time folks. leadership at ebay is obsolete, too much legacy crap and... read more
After over a decade at eBay, I was let go as well. I’m happy in a way, because I was too comfortable working there, even when I felt the company is poorly run and see no bright future. But in my opinion, everyone up top should get slashed, and not... read more
So long to the retarded policy of always taking the side of the buyer and allowing international scam. You got what you deserved.
It does feel like at least 500 were cut, but many geographies were affected so I really do not know what happened. I know that Marketing in Bellevue took a hit as well.
ebay execs will walk around and brag/preach about diversity... Big words about "inclusion', 'opportunity', 'equality', 'merit'... This only applies to the bottom of the barrel positions in the call center floor - they need diversity when they need to... read more
Our CIO is one of the biggest "all me and only me" types that ever walked the earth. Shareholders have got to wake up and smell the air - they have to ACTIVELY police the executives activities as they are representing a threat to the longevity of the... read more
Honestly, can he build, grow and develop? The answer is know. Yep, cost cutting is his game and a monkey can do cutting - cut left, right, up and down - the profits will go up. Yeah, the company will go BK in a couple of years, it'll get acquired and... read more
Nothing more to add. I was let go today, and even though I was not expecting it, I feel relieved as it's very stressful to work in an environment where you do not know if you'll have a job tomorrow. It's obvious there are challenges and that ebay... read more
Just seeing posts from people on Slack that layoffs are happening in the Portland office, as well as news reports that it's happening in Israel.
Do you think we'll have (new) layoffs in San Jose.
Merchandising / Account Management re-org happening today. Lots of people getting laid off.
How about a new round of layoffs in San Jose.
OK, this is a rare but good example of how companies can bring jobs back to the country: US-based ecommerce giant eBay has just fired its product and tech team in India, except 15 who may be moving to the US. These were staff working out of eBay’s... read more
What is the likelihood of EBAY layoffs in San Jose in 2016? Please let me know if you have any information.
Not sure why we have no posts but here is Jan 2015 eBay layoffs skinny. The execs are freaking out as Ichan is breathing down their necks. So, nothing new here, it has been like this for a while. However, he is more particular now and he’s demanding... read more
Let's see what 2014 and 2015 bring, ebay is not growing rapidly any more and had it not been for PayPal we'd have major issues right now. PayPal is basically supporting the other businesses we have.
