There's some good, some bad, and some very bad.

Senior Product Manager (Current Employee)
San Jose, CA

I have been working at PayPal full-time for more than 3 years

ProsStrategic position in the industry, doesn't take much to reap the benefits. Can be very nimble, innovative, and productive, IF you're in the right group. Flexibility in hours and they just took down the cubicle walls.

ConsImagine how much the company can accomplish if it actually makes the whole company nimble, innovative, and productive. Too much politics, too many useless and "talk only" middle managers. Some managers are tacticians and good implementers, but are also brutal and warlord-like, stifle creativity and plays cronyism; hire and promote "their own kind".

Advice to Senior ManagementWalk the halls, talk to all levels of employees. Some of your VPs and Directors are slowly but surely ruining things and driving out smart people.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
