PayPal was a great friendly place to work

Data Analyst (Former Employee)
San Jose, CA

I worked at PayPal as a contractor for less than a year

ProsEveryone is very friendly and easy going. Dress is pretty casual, everyone wears jeans and a polo shirt or T-shirt. The group I worked in provided me with lots of useful feedback and career advice.

ConsThe workload for everyone in the company seemed to be very heavy. Being a financial company there is alot of red tape and process to follow.

Advice to Senior ManagementI thought the management was good. Came around to talk to everyone in the department, and was easy to approach.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
