    Former Employee - Data Analyst in San Jose, CA

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

    Pros

    Everyone 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.

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    people who know what they should be doing
    bagels on wednesdays
    nice gym

    Cons

    people who play along to get along, rather than doing what they should be doing (which requires having the guts to push against management)
    management who lies through their teeth and has no shame about it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    walk the talk; get rid of underperformers at the higher levels; trim the org down to size
