    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.

    I worked at PayPal full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great company which is doing extremely well in the marketplace. In some groups, the code you touch affects the livelihood of millions of people. A great place to learn about payments and payments processing. Some really top notch engineers.

    Cons

    More than a few mediocre engineers just coasting. The code base is kind of a mess, although many efforts are being made to fix things. The development environment, building and testing, was a real mess when I was there, although I hear that things have gotten a bit better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Prioritize improving the development environment, reducing needless processes, and shortening the list of objectives and priorities.
