Featured Review

Current Employee - Software Development Engineer (SDE)

I have been working at Amazon full-time for less than a year

Pros

Inclusive and peculiar culture Ownership of actions is really autonomous Great team

Cons

No cons for now for myself

Former Employee - Compliance Risk Analyst

I worked at PayPal full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

- amazing management, providing great support - salary - time off - package

Cons

Could be difficult to prove your expertise at the entry level, however once you proven your ability to work hard and brought development focus, you will find big opportunities in this workspace.... Fast changing targets environment.

Advice to Management

I would provide more freedom to people at the entry level to express themselves and their knowledge instead of putting them into frames. It feels like you have a more value to the company on greater... levels.
