    I have been working at PayPal full-time

    Pros

    Easy chill work-life balance. Decent compensation.

    Cons

    Lots and lots of dead-weight and floaters. Very top-heavy

    Advice to Management

    Adopt a meritocracy based culture. Notice how the % of people under age of 30 is probably less than 3% of the entire company - are you sure you're a "tech" company?
