Pros

In my specific line of work few places are better than PayPal.

Cons

There is a general lack of communication about company priorities, strategies, and alignment to actually get work done.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please be better about prioritizing work and breaking up empire building.

    Pros

    new issues, fast-paced. Interesting work.

    Cons

    There is a lot of bloated management who only take care of themselves and their "favorites." About 20% of the people do 80% of the work (new version of 80/20 rule), but those aren't usually the people getting promoted because no one wants them to leave their jobs or nothing would get done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't just listen to people with the fanciest presentations or who do a great job of managing up. It's the people who DON'T HAVE TIME to do those things that are really pulling their weight.

    Pros

    PayPal offers the best benefits and pay for a job that does not necessarily require a degree in the Omaha metro area. Each paycheck we get approximately 5 hours of PTO, benefits start from the day you are hired. After 5 years working there you get a one month paid sabbatical in addition to PTO every paycheck. PayPal offers a variety of work schedules, including 12 hour SSM shifts that rock my socks! It's feels like working a part time job with full time pay! The work itself is enjoyable and most of the customers are very pleasant and friendly.

    Cons

    Requesting days to use PTO can only be done within 90 days from the date that you need off. Must have PTO to take days off.
