Approves of CEO

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

Pros

* The people doing the real work are great! Everybody wants to get work done and people get along well.
* Good pay.

Cons

* Management is horrible!! The managers stay here forever since nobody else will hire them. They only manage up and make numbers look good for senior management.
* The managers here get paid very well and make working very difficult instead of enabling their teams to work better.

Advice to Management

* Listen to the people doing the real work.
* Stop all the brown nosing!

    Your benefits are very good and you won't have a chance to be bored.

    Cons

    Call Center with Occurrences falling off after 180 days. This drives people to go to work when they are deathly ill.
    Management vision - Switches too often to keep up with
    High Stress Job
    Your credit rating defines how far you can go with the company

    Advice to Management

    It seems you are making fear based adaptations to the expectations of a new CEO. This leads to change without planning and thought.
