I have been working at PayPal full-time for more than a year

Pros

Competitive compensation/benefit package.
Cafeteria/gym on site.
Core business continues to grow 20% year over year.
Huge potential upside if we execute...

Cons

David Marcus/Hill Ferguson leadership has been a bit like amateur day. Announcing layoffs and re-org that essentially grind work for half of the company to a halt while everyone holds their breath to see if they will still be employed.

Lots of nice people here but a culture of distrust and secrecy reverberates between most teams as people seem to attempt to take control or credit for the work of others.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Consolidate, focus, and change the culture to one of trust and cooperation.

    I have been working at PayPal full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Until 6 months ago one of the best companies to work for in America. Now, not so much.

    Cons

    Before layoff, my performance appraisal was lowered to a "meets some" over the objections of HR and 2-levels of management. This happened to about 25% of my department and some managers had to reqrite reviews to a lower level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop lying about performance. If you're going to do a layoff, especially one you have already announced. There's no need to do this.

    I have been working at PayPal full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good salary ranges and benefits, quite a few good people, and it's always great to be part of a successful enterprise.

    Cons

    Has become very political. Hidden agendas and empire-building abounds. Unclear if new leadership has what it takes to right the ship.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    focus on the customer, demand visibility, squash political animals. reacquaint yourself with those things called "the ebay values", and live them.
