    I have been working at PayPal as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    * Flexible working hours
    * Free lunch, free breakfast, snacks and soft drink
    * Work with people across the globe
    * Provide entertainment rooms like table tennies, xbox, and foosball

    Cons

    * Need to stay late if you have team meeting with people from different time
    * Work in the weekend, if you are in different timezone (especially if you are in Asia timezone, while the PayPal release following US time)
    * Bureaucracy
    * Mostly start as contractor, promised to get promoted in one year, but keep given reason to delay your conversion

    Advice to Management

    If you find contractors are expensive to begin with, you should not hire as contractor at the first place. Even after deciding to hire only full time employees, please consider the values that has been delivered by contractors during his/her tenure. Also if you could not fulfill your promise to convert in specific time, don't promise it (maybe it is not come from PayPal directly, but please keep your "partners" under watch).
