    The Marie Antionette Moment

    Pros

    I realized the extent of my burnout when there was an email hyping third quarter, lots to launch, we’re in a marathon but start sprinting. 4 weeks later, another email came about management's refreshing 2-week vacations, the realization of how important it was to recharge and how good it was to step away for time with their families, yet it's still 3rd quarter, so keep sprinting. For the majority who can’t take time off due to an overload of varying production deadlines and escalations and who start their workday earlier and end them later just to keep up, this came across as exceptionally tone deaf. Making it worse was an all hands discussing how to ensure a better work life balance—here, read some slide decks. What finally convinced me to write this review was when a dev colleague told me after he’d been diagnosed with a serious illness, his manager asked if he could take on an additional product launch to the ones he's currently handling. In short, it’s your own damn fault if you can’t manage self-care, regardless of the work load. Pros: • Good health benefits • 401k match • ESPP program • RSUs • Commuting reimbursements • Roth 401k • Track free vacation - no need to put in a request for time off weeks in advance

    Cons

    Cons: • 2020 Covid moonshot attitude focus, aka “all hands on deck/sprint to you drop, people!”, is now the workstyle norm • Reports overload. Multiple, often duplicate reports must be done each week. Even if there was no movement, something must get added (punctuation change, word deletion) otherwise it’s a mark against you. • Rampant Yes Man culture in meetings where people race to add their “wow, fantastic insight!” comments in the meeting chat just to get noticed for promotion • Quarterly team re-orgs that are just constant churn / chaos • Layoffs in January/early Feb (avoids bonus payout) • Promotions are difficult to achieve. The process is pretty much where the manager who shouts the loudest in the ranking meeting, gets the promotions • Fewer RSU awards • Track free vacation almost impossible to use due to the workload. Most people end up only taking 2 weeks at the end of the year

    Pros

    I joined as a recent college graduate in pandemic, PayPal's values and mission have always inspired the work we do and the impact we create is beyond amazing. As a new joinee, I feel learning curve has been big for me and PayPal has been super supportive to help maintain WFH life balance. Why should you be here ? 1. If you care that your work positively impacts the world and you want to be in a place that cares about you. 2. Benefits are amazing ! Wellness days - FTW 3. Challenging problems to solve; great work domain 4. No late night staying at work 5. Happy friday hours are for real !

    Cons

    Re-orgs might happen often; but looking at a positive side - this gives you a chance to network across other teams
