Very political, if you are part of the 'in crowd' you'll do well - if not, you're screwed

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in San Jose, CA

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

Pros

Decent benefits, for the most part, smart people.

Cons

Extremely political. There is a certain race that will only hire others of their race... because of the stack rankings, they look out for their friends. If you are not one of those ppl, you get screwed during reviews. Most of the people that are doing this don't even see anything wrong with "looking out for their friends".

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Examine hiring, promotion and reviews based on race. You might be surprised at how vulnerable you are to claims of discrimination.

    Pros

    Work/life balance
    Excellent benefits
    Move towards open offices across the board

    Cons

    Feel like we chase after other companies instead of truly innovating
    Difficult to get small things done because there are so many levels
    Difficult to get ahead

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue moving towards a more startup culture. Make it easier for people to advance in pay and title if they are already doing the work. Make opportunities for people instead of keeping them stagnated in roles that are not going anywhere.
