Challenging Work Envt
Lead Software QA Engineer (Current Employee) –  Baltimore, MDMarch 6, 2019
PayPal is fast paced and rapidly changing envt.
Anyone has passion for learning new technologies in market, then paypal is for you.
Working hours are flexible, but you might have to do after hours given the timelines.
But it totally depends on your manager.

Management needs to improve and Team Leads needs to know their responsibilities.
Software Engineer Contractor (Former Employee) –  Omaha, NEFebruary 25, 2019
- Unstable teams as people leave by loosing interest to work on
development/Test.

- Management needs to improve

- Agile has to be followed properly

- Work Culture has to be improved

- Should learn from other companies/teams on how to work in a
collaborative manner.

- Leads do not take care of subordinates which is part of their job
instead act like they are helping out of their kindness.

- Contractors are treated poorly, many contractors left including me
because of poor work culture and mental stress.

- No work life balance.
Pros
Leading company one would love to work for
Cons
Worst work culture, Leads do not take care of subordinates, poor management.

Call center job
Customer Service Agent (Former Employee) –  Chandler, AZFebruary 18, 2019
Standard call center job requirements.
If you can sit behind a computer for 40hrs. a week and deal with people over the phone you'll do fine. Personally it was not a job for me as I can't handle people calling to complain about what they signed up for and how it's the company's fault they don't know how to use the products and services.
Pros
$15/hr, 40hrs/wk
Cons
Call center

Limitations Agent (Former Employee) –  Chandler, AZFebruary 18, 2019
PayPal is a great place to work for. There are many levels of advancement and many departments to work in. Managers are run of the mill but the benefits make up for their incompetence.

Paypal is your typical Coporate America job. You will always people you love and hate. If you love a competitive fast paced environment then this is your new career.

Decent but difficult life-work-balance
Software Engineer 2 (Former Employee) –  Scottsdale, AZFebruary 13, 2019

Pros
free food, good compensation, fun problems to solve

high stress environment

(Contractor) Senior TPM & Operations Manager (Former Employee) –  San Jose, CAFebruary 10, 2019
CEO is very transparent and credible. The company invests a lot of effort to train and encourage their employees. There is a lot of employee loyalty and many staff members have been there 10+ years which is unusual in the bay area.

Change and Adapt
Management (Current Employee) –  ArizonaFebruary 6, 2019
Growth and success with a positive work culture is what you can expect each day. You will be challenged each day and some days are better than others but every teammate experiences the same thing and you can rely on management to support you because of the values PayPal expects all management to embrace. Everyday you are using technology to communicate with customers, merchants, teammates. Verbal and written communication skills, collaboration, and inclusiveness are essential for personal success.
Pros
Leading edge company
Cons
Change and fast pace
