Very relax and fun place to work at
Firewall Engineer (Former Employee) –  La Vista, NEFebruary 20, 2018
the atmosphere at the work was cool and they don't have dress code so everyone wore casuals, the team are supportive of your actions, in daily activities there's no fixed schedule for IT guys as long as you get the work done.
Pros
break fast on tuesday, gaming centers, lake pond for walks

Compliance Analyst (Former Employee) –  La Vista, NEFebruary 8, 2018
PayPal has a great work life balance and is a good company to work for if you like change. There is plenty of room for advancement and lots to learn on a daily basis. The best part of the job was the people.
Pros
The people are like a close family
Cons
Most departments are reactive and not proactive

Call Center Representative (Current Employee) –  Hunt Valley, MDFebruary 3, 2018
PayPal is very big on numbers and what they teach in training has nothing to do with the work you will do when you hit the floor. If you don't catch on quickly you will be constantly stressed.

Debit Card Agent (Current Employee) –  Lavista, NEJanuary 28, 2018
It a great company to work for, however after being in the same dept for a long time I'm finding it hard to move to a new dept within the company. This is the reason that I wish to find something different, looking for a change in the new year.
Pros

Very hard to move around within the company.

Not the best experience
Collector (Former Employee) –  Hunt Valley, MDJanuary 27, 2018
Pay and benefits are very good. Culture and management are a different story. PayPal's work environment is big brother for sure. You are constantly being recorded. If you want to have an off the record conversation with your co worker you have to unplug your headset. Their east coast site has actual microphones that hang down from the ceiling. Management is another thing. If you luck out and get a good one then you should be fine. But there are plenty of managers who are there that don't know your job or PayPal systems even after working there for years. They definitely play favorites and if you're not one of them then that would be a misfortune. Also, they don't seem to expand management roles. Positions rarely open up and you would be wise to try and work in a different area as opposed to moving up (unless of course you are favored).
Pros
Pay and benefits are outstanding
Cons

Working at PayPal was a very relaxed place to work. The accounts were coming in on the computer all the time. We were not on the phone. We could have our headphones one.

There were much politics. People were constantly worried about their reputation which caused much stressful, unproductive team culture. Hope to see more collaborative culture

used to be a fun place to work
Omaha - Compliance Analyst (Former Employee) –  Omaha, NEJanuary 15, 2018
The days of being a fun, employee caring company are over. Once PayPal and eBay split, PayPal went downhill quick. The office quickly turned into a scene from high school with office politics and drama from team leaders sleeping with their subordinates. If you don't play office politics and brown nose, you will not advance in the department. Hard work does not pay off at this company! However, what keeps most people working there was the awesome insurance and benefits they provided. However, again after splitting from eBay those benefits are no longer as good as they used to be, and appear to be slowly getting worse.
Pros
cheap vending machines
Cons
lack of communication
