    Pros

    Job stability, they rarely fire full time employees.

    Cons

    Mediocre people's paradise because promotion and recognition is not based on what you have achieved but how close you get to your boss.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To make this a better company, you guys really need to know what your subordinates are capable of, not how talkative he is, nor how good he plays golf with you.

    Pros

    The physical working environment is very pleasant, with decent benefits such as tennis courts, gym, fitness classes, and varied cuisine choices. The buildings are youthful and well decorated. Flexibility to work out of office exists, though it is difficult to obtain permission to do so. In general, employees are treated fairly based upon merit, rather than title. It is fairly easy to make a difference in the company if one so desires, because there are people willing to listen and support good ideas. The structure of the company's departments are reasonably well designed to help enable productivity through effective allocation of resources.

    Cons

    The cohesiveness between and within business units is very poor. There is little sense of camaraderie. There are few people who could be called inspirational, and little that motivates employees to go above and beyond. It is difficult to trust the direction of senior management, because that direction is rarely shared in sufficient detail. The biggest problem I perceive is a lack of effective communication within departments and between departments, or even between teams in departments. At the root of this issue is a lack of emphasis on the value of and motivations for supporting one's peers and the company's goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We at PayPal have all of the raw materials to make a fantastic company. What is needed are people to take the initiative to inspire and motivate the people at PayPal. We are missing qualities that make the heart of a company strong enough to drive innovation, push the edge of competitiveness, and remain loyal and proud. You can not buy this quality but you need to invest in it.
