    Pros

    People here at every level know what they want to achieve and from the top there are well defined objectives and a roadmap to keep the team on track to achieving goals in a timely manner.

    People is extremely accessible and always ready to give you a hand in every way possible to help you get your work done and tasks completed – there is a sense «team».

    Also there is plenty of room to grow, a clear career path laid and the tools to walk through it.

    Company-wide objectives are always achieved every year and the company recognizes well its employees' effort and demonstrates it.

    Cons

    Although there is a well established career path and a lot of tools/incentives to help you grow... sometimes it might just take some time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it going! Keep making PayPal a great place to work.
