I worked at PayPal full-time for more than a year

Pros

Overall a good culture, like any company depends on your team and manager. Reputation among technologist improving and David Marcus is executing well.

Cons

Large organization means things can move pretty slowly and affecting change will require good politics to pull in champions for your ideas

    I worked at PayPal as an intern

    Pros

    David Marcus has a great vision. It's just that his employees sometimes just don't get it.

    Cons

    Nothing was shipped or got done. PMs never got along. It was all talk and no action.
