I worked at PayPal as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Awesome cafeteria! Great yoga teacher too!

Cons

Bad management, no planning, technical infighting, managers who lie about their employees, what an insane lack of discipline, oversight and waste of money. To think all that money flows through here on a daily basis and is managed so poorly. Every single person I dealt with - was terminated after me. However, it was easy to see that how I was treated - no one cared. What was said about me was outright libelous, but the manager did not have any consequences. This is a sad, fast turn over place which with some effort could be the place they give the lip service to.. Get in if you must, be prepared to leave if you have ethics.

Advice to Management

Why not decide to run this like you pretend to have a conscience? Why is your ops team so wasteful? Take a good look at the management of your network... you could do so much better, and your staff, well they speak for themselves don't they.
