    I have been working at PayPal as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Awesome coworkers who are very respectful, fast, and passionate about what they do - Company has improved a lot in terms of innovation with new leadership - Starbucks is subsidized and in house - Executives all very friendly to juniors, encouraging, and you feel challenged

    Cons

    - Need less meetings to achieve goals - Need to be more innovative internally - Restaurant/cafe prices are the same as the outside world, should be subsidized but prices don't feel like they are

    I have been working at PayPal full-time (More than 5 years)

    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.
