Overall a good culture, like any company depends on your team and manager. Reputation among technologist improving and David Marcus is executing well.

Large organization means things can move pretty slowly and affecting change will require good politics to pull in champions for your ideas

    I worked at PayPal full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fantastic benefits and incredibly smart people. Some of the smartest people I have worked with in my career were at PayPal. Starting to become more of a marketing company and less of an engineering company which I think will only help growth.

    Cons

    Like any larger company it seems to be too heavily matrixed and there needs to be more communication between regions to take the company to the next level.

    Advice to Management

    More in-house promotions and less global / regional organizational changes.
