Pros

Fantastic training program. Great job of introducing to the product and setting employees up for success.

Cons

Seemingly a lengthy time to promotion. Big company, lots of processes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Unite all of the offerings across eBay, PayPal, Stumble Upon, Stub Hub, etc.

    Former Employee - User Experience Manager in San Jose, CA

    I worked at PayPal

    Pros

    - Good career growth opportunities. Do a good job and you will get promoted regularly.
    - Decent compensation packages, but you have to ask for it
    - Decent work / life balance, but you have to be willing to stand up for yourself and make sure you have a good understanding of you responsibilities with your manager.

    Cons

    - Slow and frustrating development process. Way too slow for a web company.
    - Too focused on profits with a lack of empathy for the end users. Lots of user research and testing is done, but unfortunately the results are often ignored.
    - Too many 'empire builder' directors just trying to build the biggest teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't forget about the customers...

    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.
