Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Not enough pressure Freedom to do things the way you want Decent compensation Good fringe benefits

Cons

Technology is 10-years old. Management has realized that, but isn't making any progress. Management can't even do a reorg in a proper way leading to more waste of time and people. In short, not a good place to work and not challenging enough for high-caliber talent.

Advice to Management

Please execute on your promises.

    Former Employee - Director in San Jose, CA

    I worked at PayPal full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    From speaking with people still involved in the company, there seems to be a lot more innovation and speed injected into the organization over the past few years

    Cons

    When I was there, it was viewed as a machine and was becoming bloated and stale. It had a dominant market position but had slowed down in terms of new innovations getting to market

    Advice to Management

    Keep driving forward with innovation and efficiencies...you need to be viewed as more innovate and customer focused as opposed to the 'old guard'
