Pros

The mobile is driving the new prospect of money and how we pay and get paid. Square though innovator with card-reader but paypal is not far behind accelerating business globally.

Cons

Still slower than start-up as there is constant pressure of a stable and highly-available site(payment processor) and rapid growth in new market.

    Pros

    Good benefits, different shifts available, the work is relatively easy but can quickly become 'mindnumbingly' routine.

    Cons

    lack of opportunities to be upwardly mobile. when a job posting comes out, you are competing against at least 10-15 people (sometimes as many as 30-40 people) because many tenured people are desperate to move up. final decisions on candidates seem to be based on who you know, not education or experience. many quality people have left the company because they just can't get ahead.

    Advice to Management

    value your employees, not just because it increases your bottom line, but because it is the right thing to do. look at your pay scale and be more generous with compensation-this is a million/billion dollar company but you cry 'poor mouth' whenever employees ask for more than a 3% raise. take a hard honest look at your supervisors-some of them have no business managing people.
