Employee friendly productive work place
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Out of date management-High level of nepotism
Out of date management.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 :-)

Good and short
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.

Good benefits
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.

Good company to work for
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.

I wouldnt recommend it
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.

Learning a lot
You can learn a lot, management is generally good but not in all areas.
Culture is ok, Internal communication is a bit fake though.

In higher positions the working week is 50+ hours, company also keeps restructuring in the last few years, letting people go with redundancy packages.

Salary and package is very good though.
Pros
Salary, colleagues.
Cons
Long hours, company restructure too many times in the last few years letting people go

Great company with lots of benefits
PayPal is a great company for those looking to kickstart their career. The relaxed atmosphere is welcoming and there are a large variety of jobs to learn from. Progression can be made with hard work and good networking but can be sometimes frustrating to get off a base level job due to high competition. Management are usually very good but some red tape can be involved which is understandable for a large company. Work/Life balance is normally very reasonable and for most jobs, you're able to switch off completely once you go home. Salaries are not the highest but benefits are good like gym, pension and healthcare.

PayPal overall
PayPal gave me the opportunity to learn different aspects of the products by learning the overall knowledge of each department .
I had the opportunity to grow within the company to my desired position which was Compliance and EDD analyst by vetting all potential risks linked to customer and business accounts making sure these adhered with PayPal Compliance and EU Regulations against Money Laundering.

PayPal is a great place to work thanks to its multicultural experience and environment .
Pros
Company benefits (Company shares - Health Care policy )
Cons
Long hours
