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

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Exciting products. Part of eBay, Inc., which lends credibility to the Paypal leadership team. Workload is manageable in many roles because the company is overstaffed in many spaces.

    Cons

    The leadership team needs to hold itself accountable for results and modeling the eBay Shared Behaviors. For a company that is as mature as it is and part of eBay, Inc. it is surprising that it is so immature on many levels - lack of clear goal planning structure, weak communications cadences, under utilization of staff and frequent reorgs to solve issues that can be solved without creating employee churn and productivity loss. Some of the leaders display unprofessional and poor leadership attributes and rather than holding them to the same standard that employees are held to their behavior is condoned because of who they know.

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

    Pros

    PayPal has great technology available to their employees, housed in a beautiful building.

    Cons

    I was hired as a contract recruiter, only to learn that what they really wanted was an admin that could juggle their interview schedules through Microsoft. To make it more challenging, no one talks to each other. All communication is done by email or by 'i.m.ing'. Even though I sat 10 feet away from the people I worked with any attempt to speak to them face-to-face was met with the comment 'just i.m.me'. This is the perfect environment for 30 something candidates who want to live their lives staring at a computer for 8 hours a day. This experience was a huge disappointment and let-down.

    Advice to Management

    Your Human Resources Department needs a thorough cleaning.
