Current Employee - Director in San Jose, CA

I have been working at PayPal full-time

Pros

PayPal has many positives. The top areas include:
-culture (very flat and collaborative)
-career development opportunity (can move around to different roles)
-growth (doubled over last 3 years and continuing to grow fast)
-fun (changing the world)

Cons

PayPal has gotten big and over time, it's become bloated. Too many meetings. Too many turf wars. Still too slow.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep on the current path. The changes are needed. Becoming more like a startup is a great goal, but don't forget that we are a public company and a financial services company... process and controls are not all bad. Sometimes we need to slow down to speed up.

    I have been working at PayPal as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great people, nice environment, upbeat corporate philosophy

    Cons

    Chaos, limited process, ineffective managers, duplicate project effort.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Executive management isn't tending to the homefront. Morale and work ethic are low. Some departments are doing fine but weak management at the middle tier is killing parts of the company
