    Pros

    Paypal has an incredible work/life balance. The salary and benefits are so good that while it's time for me to move on, it's hard to find anything better. I enjoy the people that I work with and I'm empowered so long as I can execute with my existing resources.

    Cons

    There is very little accountability, until someone breaks something. Management does not push standards down, leading to every team doing its own thing. Lots of duplication and disjointed processes, which is frustrating. Lots of re-orgs, so never really sure who is responsible for what over the long term. Very limited opportunity for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Review your tooling strategy. I believe every vendor out there has tools at PayPal. Lots of duplication of processes and efforts. Tools don't talk to each other.

    Pay
    Career Path

    Your benefits are very good and you won't have a chance to be bored.

    Cons

    Call Center with Occurrences falling off after 180 days. This drives people to go to work when they are deathly ill.
    Management vision - Switches too often to keep up with
    High Stress Job
    Your credit rating defines how far you can go with the company

    Advice to Management

    It seems you are making fear based adaptations to the expectations of a new CEO. This leads to change without planning and thought.
