Management is extremely bad!!!

Software Engineer III (Former Employee)
Austin, TX

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

Pros* The people doing the real work are great! Everybody wants to get work done and people get along well.
* Good pay.

Cons* Management is horrible!! The managers stay here forever since nobody else will hire them. They only manage up and make numbers look good for senior management.
* The managers here get paid very well and make working very difficult instead of enabling their teams to work better.

Advice to Senior Management* Listen to the people doing the real work.
* Stop all the brown nosing!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
