Professional company to learn and grow
Big Data Systems Intern (Current Employee) –  San Jose, CAAugust 18, 2018
Learned how PayPal's Big Data CPI team operates and how they tackle daily tasks in managing big data. Very technical role which includes lots of self-learning, but also very rewarding at the same time. PayPal also includes various extracurricular activities such as Volleyball, Gym, Basketball.

FIELD MANAGER AND PC TECH (Former Employee) –  Silver Spring, MDAugust 10, 2018
The importance of existence of a strong and dynamic high technology companies sector in the current world
economy is enormous as it largely influences the potential for global competitiveness of individual nations or regions.
In the developed, post-industrial economies the high technology companies sector is commonly regarded as the area
with the largest use of and dependence on the so called special means of production – knowledge and human resources.
These means are constantly created, which enables not only competition among individual companies but also has a
positive effect on the surroundings (traditional industries, level of science, etc.). High technology sector also requires
continuous and intense innovative activities as well as large research and development investments. Most of the
previous studies of the high technology sector have focused on the issues related to methodology of measuring the
research and development activities and its results, the amounts, structure and sources of financing, institutional
solutions and the role of the state in stimulating the scientific and technological progress as well as on the issues of
technological advancement in a wider context of innovativeness. However, there have been few studies of high
technology companies’ functioning and management. This article is an attempt to define the concept of a high tech
company and identify its characteristics in comparison to a traditional, industrial enterprise, considering the basic
organisation units. It has been shown that every HT company, apart from the fact of operating
  more... in the high technology
sector, is an innovative enterprise based on knowledge and the use of modern IT technology.

MERCHANT RISK VETTING SENIOR LEADER (Former Employee) –  Omaha, NEAugust 8, 2018
I worked a "back-office" job which had some incoming phone calls. The work was very repetitive. We had service levels which needed to maintained. Sometimes there was overtime. The hardest part about the job was doing the same thing day in and day out. The culture was amazing and it was the people I worked with that brought me to work every day. The management is hit or miss and they move in and out a lot. I learned a lot of transferable skills working at PayPal.

Exciting place to work.
Account Manager I (former) (Former Employee) –  La Vista, NEAugust 7, 2018
My typical day was a main point contact for my assigned accounts. I learned how to make my relationship building skills better to become the trusted advisor. Management was there to assist when issues had to be escalated. The culture had a good balance. The most enjoyable art of the job was getting to know my clients.
Pros
Good Work/Life balance
Cons

Best Place to Work For
Complex Customer Support (Former Employee) –  Chandler, AZAugust 2, 2018
PayPal was consistently awarded the Best Place to Work award, but none of the employees were allowed to fill out the ballot. Management did everything they could to hide this fact.

Wish they treated people better.
Collections Agent 2 (Current Employee) –  Hunt Valley, MDJuly 30, 2018
There is no real job security and will fire you for things you may have no control over. No real concern for employees needs. Something is always changing and just overall not a comfortable place to be.
Pros
Meet great people, learn new things
Cons
No ideal mon-fri shift, no job security, management

fun place
Customer Support (Current Employee) –  Hunt Valley, MDJuly 26, 2018

Pros
vendors, holiday party, free baseball games
Cons
no ideal mon-fri schedule

call center environment
Collections Agent (Former Employee) –  Chandler, AZJuly 23, 2018
Company created a team atmosphere and had a fair Job/Work Balance as well as a professional atmosphere in a call center atmosphere. Fast paced environment. Incentives for the collection department given monthly with company metric system. The use of companies metric system was also used for performance evaluation.
However incentives were constantly changed when performances were met by individuals reached the minimum amount to receive incentives as well as pay raises were not given and or when raises were given they were very minimal. Supervisors would give team members more company procedures without any further training. Company lacked positive feedback and did not give all employees same treatment when it came to customers speaking to them how the job was well done. Some employees received emails detailing the exceptional customer service where others would not get any kudos. 137 Company would present all changes in a positive manner.
A constant deduction of employee perks when separated from parent company.
Used two monitor screens to allow information available for customers questions.
Pros
game room, workout room, mothers room
Cons
short breaks, not consistent in with all teammates regarding a great job done

Spanish Position
Spanish Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Chandler, AZJuly 23, 2018
The Spanish Bilingual position at PayPal is very stressful. Also you deal with a LATAM team and management is very depressing. I would recommend the English position if anything since there is less drama and more opportunities.
