    I have been working at PayPal full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everything is automated, systematic and well organized.
    You don't need to run around for requirements, Everything can be addressed by specific channel/portals.
    Management is Leadership and policy driven.
    No need to think additional except work,

    Cons

    People who are coming here at PYPL, they come with their old mindset, culture and boss pleasant attitude, that is not required at all. PYPL trust everyone without discrimination.

    Advice to Management

    Hire with full and strict background verification, make it better. Check if person is absconded or coming from which company ? how was he there ?

    I have been working at PayPal full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    1. Flexibility in work, ( You can take work from home, But if u want continuous days for WFH, you should get managers approval)
    2. There is no dresscode ( You can even come in shorts and round neck t-shirts)
    3. Highly configured devices are given for working (laptops, if u support any application u will be given samsung s9 phone)
    4. Food at the Food court is maintained well in terms of quality, Afternoon meals is not good.
    5. Transport is provided for all employees even for the contractors, In fact buses are the best i have traveled so far.
    5. Compensation is above par compared to 90% of CMMI level5 companies.
    6. If you work hard, you will be rewarded, if you are struggling/taking much time in doing the work, they don't even respect you.
    7. Free snacks and cool drinks are available entire day mostly.

    Cons

    1. They don't help you, you should get the things for you. You should be ready to work in any technology.
    2. The managers expectations are huge
    3. Most of the freshers they recruit from popular colleges like (Bits pilani, VIT, NITs), So managers compare you with them.
