Lots of potential but average management

Senior Manager (Current Employee)
San Jose, CA

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

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

ConsIt 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 Senior ManagementReduce head count. Simplify!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
