    Pros

    Great work environment, great people and Work Life Balance is pretty good across most of the teams. Training Education Allowance Gym access internally VHI PENSION STOCK 25 days holidays parental leave.

    Cons

    Frequent Re-Orgs cause a lot of churn as well Slow decision-making allows nimble start ups to get first to market. Like any other big company one should know how to navigate the corporate system for better perks. Salaries and benefit levels are lower than in other similar companies.

    Pros

    They invest in employee learning and growth and you are allowed to use the latest open source technologies in product development. Great health & other family-friendly benefits, decent compensation, high growth stock and good work life balance. Free snacks, fruit & soda daily, discounted cafeteria food and a nice campus equipped with a gym, tennis and volleyball court. Great colleagues and easy going team culture with flexible work from home option.

    Cons

    Depending on the BU there might be frequent re-orgs and you'll have to deal with lots of legacy software tech debt inherited from eBay days. The open office layout can be annoying if you want to concentrate on software development without being disturbed. Compensation very good but well below FAANG levels.

    I worked at PayPal full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A good place for beginners whether in engineering or data science where you will learn a lot. Brand name. Some colleagues are good. Paypal is ideal for those who are in management or want to move to management.

    Cons

    Managers are the worst. Stingy as hell, won't give a yearly raise. Gives promotion with a bare minimum of 6% raise. Managers tend to favor women over men at promotion (this is the current norm at PayPal as a whole). Depending on the ethnicity of the boss, he/she will favor those who belong to the same ethnicity. Diversity is a joke. Risk teams are fully either Chinese or Israeli. Few people from other nations who were part of these teams were made (or forced) to leave the company. Too many re-orgs and jobs getting outsourced. High attrition. Paypal Risk has 1 manager for every 3-4 people, which translates to too much politics.

    I worked at PayPal full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great team, gym, location, etc. I really enjoyed working with the team and helping to improve the working model here. Great offices and established Producer team.

    Cons

    A few re-orgs impacted the design team culture negatively. It seems the company is investing more in dev and product rather than design. Lots of designers leaving or being laid off.
