    Pros

    PayPal offers the best benefits and pay for a job that does not necessarily require a degree in the Omaha metro area. Each paycheck we get approximately 5 hours of PTO, benefits start from the day you are hired. After 5 years working there you get a one month paid sabbatical in addition to PTO every paycheck. PayPal offers a variety of work schedules, including 12 hour SSM shifts that rock my socks! It's feels like working a part time job with full time pay! The work itself is enjoyable and most of the customers are very pleasant and friendly.

    Cons

    Requesting days to use PTO can only be done within 90 days from the date that you need off. Must have PTO to take days off.

    Pros

    Its a great company with a rich history and lots of potential. Its a hugely profitable business fulfilling a very genuine customer requirement. The work life balance is good.

    Cons

    Lack of vision and proper execution on management's part.
    Too many turf wars
    The technology stack is just outdated making upgrades and new features almost impossible

    Advice to Management

    Reorganize the company and the metrics for individual success to go with company goals.
    Reduce the number of people working on the same product - even if from different directions. There is just way too much of dissonance
