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

Pros

great product and lots of effort to make the product better and more secured.

Cons

very political environment and can hardly get anything done. There are lots of bad managers who only care about their advancement not the employee.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

reduce the red tape and get work done.

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

    Pros

    Progressive benefits, lots of P.T.O., good health, dentist, and life insurance available. There is opportunity for lateral changes periodically, if you want to try a new position. There is also opportunity to progress upward. The work environment overall is good. They also offer school tuition reimbursement.The management was nice and did everything that they could to set you up for success. They allow you to plan for your progression and set goals to get where you want to be in the company.

    Cons

    Most positions at PayPal require receiving and/or calling customers. Call center jobs are stressful in general. Depending on your department the benefits are based on surveys from customers, which are inconsistent and hard to control. For example you could please 9/10 customers but only 2/10 get a survey and one of those could be the unpleased customer. They are also based on call handle time which means that you are always in a hurry to close the call.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce stress as much as possible. Don't focus too much on the numbers. Smile every day.

    I have been working at PayPal as a contractor for less than a 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
