    Pros

    definign the future of payments, with a global scale great people genuinely trying hard to re-connect with more innovative and startup-ish culture

    Cons

    no clear priorities make execution a giant challenge poor culture of crossfunctional collaboration. If you can be self-sustaining, then you can suceed, if you need other teams to support, then very hard. makign crossfunctional decisions is really hard. while CEO David Marcus has left and not (yet) be replaced, the organization's challenges are multiplied.

    Advice to Management

    Get an empowered COO. Oh, wait, get a CEO first.


  2. Challenging place to be a marketer

    Pros

    Company is on the cutting edge of many innovations in the payments space, and combined with the brand recognition of eBay and PayPal, should be a more dominant player.

    Cons

    Marketing functions are in a near constant state of re-organization, with little leadership and no professional development.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a true CMO and devote energy and focus to developing a marketing muscle that will go against Square, Stripe, and Amazon, who are clearly winning in this space.
