Pros

It has the culture of start up which gives you a lot of opportunities to learn and explore

Cons

It is a complex business model. Most of organizations are very matrixed which creates chaos, confusion and inefficiency. Things are always broken and take forever to get fixed. And of course, when you have too many people with not enough work, politics get the best of everyone!

Advice to Management

Reduce head count. Simplify!

    Pros

    Great company culture, management involvement, fun atmosphere. Terrific training programs. Ability to upskill at every turn. Best benefits package I've seen!

    Cons

    Feel at times like I'm at a daycare. Although their frontline managers are involved their "experience" and leadership qualities seem to be lacking. The pay is also low.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you're putting the right leaders in manager spots not just warm bodies to fill a spot.

    Pros

    The pay is decent. PayPal has an enviable position in the market. There are some really good technologists to work with. Opportunity abounds!

    Cons

    Culture is a little dry, quiet. For all the opportunity in the air you might expect more buzz/energy from the employees. There is some amount of slow-motion chaos at all times, arguing over resources/priority and empire-building to navigate.

    Advice to Management

    Focus, don't over-subscribe for the year and leave employees to constantly battle it out for priority once the laws of physics kick in.
