I have been working at PayPal full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Growth prospects of company are good - if one is lucky to join the right group chances of moving to senior roles can be descent (promoted once in 2 years).

Cons

Not a level playing field - seasoned employees won't share knowledge and information is very poorly documented for the benefit of new comers. Company's forced rating mechanism ensures poor co-operation amongst team members as each tries to ensure his or her position within the company. Very high employee attrition rate, and very frequent re-orgs (at least twice a year) that lead to inefficiency and churn. Quality of data is very poor and no two sources ever match. Performance measurement is very subjective and growth in the company depends on how politically connected one is within the organization.

Advice to Management

Treat your employees better and control attrition rate (not just voluntary) - this has not only led to inefficiency but also a very visible lack of quality control within the organization. You treat your employees just like the customers, and neither are happy

    Pros

    From speaking with people still involved in the company, there seems to be a lot more innovation and speed injected into the organization over the past few years

    Cons

    When I was there, it was viewed as a machine and was becoming bloated and stale. It had a dominant market position but had slowed down in terms of new innovations getting to market

    Advice to Management

    Keep driving forward with innovation and efficiencies...you need to be viewed as more innovate and customer focused as opposed to the 'old guard'
