Working for PayPal was an experience, which raised the bar for me when applying for future employment. Everything was around the employees. The only down side, is the pay it is not realistic with cost of living in Ireland.
I was fortunate to have worked with team leaders who were supportive and have great people skills.

There was nothing hard about working in PayPal, I never struggled to find motivation to go to work everyday.

My only reason for leaving was Brexit and the fact that my wife and kids live in the UK and was too late to relocate them.

Out of date management.
High level of nepotism.

The bridge between management and employees is very very long.

Out of place and date stats to follow by employees.

75% of employees appraisals are based on unpolite customers sending surveys.

Employees salary rise is based on customers surveys, and NOT your knowlegde.

If a customer calls using abusive language, employees are not alowed to hang up the call.

You will end up living in a small town with no transports, theaters, and very poor health system even if PP pays the insurance.


Good benefits

Good staff

Good to be in Ireland :-)

One year experience. Really good atmosphere, modern surroundings. Permanent training and little pressure from your Team Leader. Big company. Great experience, especially for newbies.
Pros
Surrounding, wage, many benefits
Cons
Working in a "bank", dealing with money and finance all the time. Not for all taste.

PayPal is a company you need to experience yourself. It depends on the management you are getting. But it has possibilities for personal growth for any individual that goes there where the sky is the limit. They will support you where they can. I had spend a good 10 years there that I don't regret.

People from all around the world at the European headquarters in Dublin. Very open and relaxed atmosphere with many incentives. I can say that PayPal looks after they're employees.

Really good benefits but the management should be reviewed. They try to offer a friendly atmosphere but are very strict at the same time so it doesn't always work. Very strict about breaks, its frowned upon to leave your desk for a bathroom break if its not within the schedule you are given.

Overall a great place to work. Long hours however only over 4 days. The people are lovely and easy to talk to management. Only downside is that I found it impossible to get time off. Holidays, special occasions etc even with 6 months notice.

Two tier staffing structure with PayPal employees and agency staff - if you are agency you are expendable (which happened to me) and you dont qualify for bonuses or benefits. Let go with just a phone call from the agency and a a weeks notice.

60 + calls per day
dealing with calls in which you have no training, or permissions to resolve the issue.

taking escalations for peers, this should be handled by team leaders, senior agents

Very nice culture, very intelligent people, and willing to work and get things done. Projects are interesting and you can learn a lot.
Limited growing opportunities though, and not much support to people managers, to learn how to effectively manage teams. Also, too many reorganizations in the last year, which is creating a lot of stress.

for the first 5 years it was a great place to work. then a change in management happened and it went down hill from there and we all learned we were just a number and they didnt really care as long as we acted like robots at our desks.

Multicultural company, good place to approach the financial services world and get to know people from every part of the world.
Would be ok to start a career in the financial services field but not a place where to have a career.

Majority are young people and everybody tend to leave within 3 years… in 7 years I have never seen a person reach retirement age there.

Generally there was an increase of people leaving or made redundant in the last 12 months.
Pros
Sabbatical leave (an extra month of holiday every 5 years), reasonable shift flexibility.
Cons
Low salaries compared to the average of the market, micromanagement, very political company (if you are not affiliated with the right people, it doesn’t matter your skills and experience but you don’t go far), small opportunity to grow, huge IT problems, lack of consistency in internal communications, management poorly motivated and engaged.
