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

Pros

Decent benefits, for the most part, smart people.

Cons

Extremely political. There is a certain race that will only hire others of their race... because of the stack rankings, they look out for their friends. If you are not one of those ppl, you get screwed during reviews. Most of the people that are doing this don't even see anything wrong with "looking out for their friends".

Advice to Management

Examine hiring, promotion and reviews based on race. You might be surprised at how vulnerable you are to claims of discrimination.
