I have been working at PayPal full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Decent work/life balance. Great fitness center. Good food including Asian-themed cafeteria. Bright people working on interesting problems in a growing industry.

Cons

It takes a long time to get anything product-related built as in you need to plan at least six months ahead of actually wanting to get something live on the site.

Advice to Management

Speed up the time to get product live

    I have been working at PayPal full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent compensation, meritocracy, plenty of room to grow, global leader in online payments !!

    Cons

    You need to be in the right team at the right time. Orgs get shuffled and moved around all the time. Prepare for a lot of volatility - one day a product is hot, the next day its out.

    Advice to Management

    Get leaner and stop wasting time and resource solving problems that don't exist.

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

    Pros

    The work atmosphere was really awesome. The management definitely took care of it's employees. Flexible hours. Bonus incentives for performance. On site gym / restaurant. Most employees are happy and nice to be around. Very good chance to grow within the company.

    Cons

    The work itself. Answering the phones to calm angry customers was the only con at PayPal.

    Advice to Management

    Change nothing. The management was great at inspiring and providing the tools necessary to do my job effectively.
