    I worked at PayPal as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone is very friendly and easy going. Dress is pretty casual, everyone wears jeans and a polo shirt or T-shirt. The group I worked in provided me with lots of useful feedback and career advice.

    Cons

    The workload for everyone in the company seemed to be very heavy. Being a financial company there is alot of red tape and process to follow.

    Advice to Management

    I thought the management was good. Came around to talk to everyone in the department, and was easy to approach.

    Pros

    Innovation. The company encourages it and if you have an idea, you can work it. This is a rare opportunity to be part of something great and make a difference at an individual level. The work-life balance is great. There are wonderful, smart and driven people to collaborate with. It brings out the best in me as I'm surrounded by top talent.

    Cons

    The company is at an inflection point. It's experiencing tremendous growth, but knows its competitors, who are small and nimble, are gaining ground. It knows it needs to change, but it's not quite sure how to change its own culture. We have a goal, but the roadmap on how to achieve the goal is unclear. Roles and responsibilities are unclear. Multiple teams solving the same problem in different ways without communicating. It's not crazy here, just feels like the first 30 seconds of Iron Chef. We're going to produce something amazing, if we can just find the salt.

    Advice to Management

    We are not a startup any longer, we need to enforce accountability, not just talk about it. I'm not saying to instill a culture of fear; but we lack a culture of discipline and accountability.
