    -Immense opportunities
    -

    Cons

    -Pay is LOW and the company does take advantage of its workers.
    -The review system is very flawed (with consistent technical/data errors) and when questioned, you are accused of not upholding company values to "Trust Eachother".
    -Anybody with corporate management experience will be hired, regardless of their credibility, character and true experience.
    -Many conflicts within operations and system. When conflicts/issues are brought to light, they are not addressed.
    -Expects workers to operate as super human machines.
    -Constantly realigning goals and visions as well as assigning new responsibilities but not increasing pay.

    Advice to Management

    Start listening to problems and allow for simple changes. Start compensating and rewarding employees fairly. Mean what you say.

    Pros

    This is not the same PayPal of 10 years ago. It's hungry, razor sharply focused and attacking a much bigger market than the massive one it already dominates.

    Cons

    PayPal had a lull in the early '00s, and it's spent the last couple years working out of that. Some of those habits are tough to eradicate.
