Out of date management.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 to be in Ireland :-)
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.
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.
Paypal has a very good environment and good benefits ;like 4 days week, health insurance, 25 days of holidays, sabbatical ... It was my first job in a multinational company and it was a very good experience
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.
Sabbatical leave (an extra month of holiday every 5 years), reasonable shift flexibility.
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.
good company to work for, its not for me as i find sitting at a computer for 10 hours a day boring.
management is very oriented to women. there is room to move on but just doing your job is not enough, you need to be seen doing extra
