valuable work experience

Extremely unfair / hypocritical management styles.

Ok place to work. Great place to get your feet wet but not a career/

When you make a certain amount of salary you will be laid off. Supervisors are awful and there is a lot of favoritism. However, the people that work there are fantastic.

Pros

Co-workers

Cons

management

Amazing company

Paypal was a great company to work in as they always give recognition to their employee for example I was promoted within 8 months into higher position due to recognition for several performance achieved and also i received several certificates for excellent for my performance and for full attendance.This motivates the employee to perform better and work harder.

Not my cup of tea

Management is not as effective. Poor growth within the organization and limited responsibilities given to employees. It's more of a routine job and i left within 1 year. However, i have utilize my time there to learn what ever i could within a short period of time. Had a better understanding of Sanctions, PEP, KYC, high risk countries. Also, understood the purpose of OFAC regulatory.

Pros

My team was awesome.

Cons

Short breaks and everything timed.

Productive and disciplined working culture.

Work on multiple Compliance cases once received documents from customer. Verify customer's profile and mitigate the any risk by escalating any suspicious activity referring standard operating procedure. Cases work on the average handling time format as the quarterly assessment depends on how fast on handling cases at the same time maintaining top quality. I learned the loopholes utilize by consumers to escape rules and regulations and the way to identify and mitigate any risk related wrongdoings. Workplace culture is very flexible and at the same time gives highest importance on discipline and punctuality. PayPal gives top priority to work life balance as their concern on employees quality time spend with family and friends. There hardest part of the job is keep adapting to new systems and operating procedures. This actually made me get used to change and increased my tendency of adapt to change. The most enjoyable part of the job is challenge of contributing idea to improve the daily task and procedures for continuous improvement.

Pros

Workshift time and Work life balance value

Cons

Productive, Organized, Fair/Great working environment

I was with PayPal for the last 5 years and this is the best company i ever worked with. I was in the Compliance Finance department - I have both experiences as a normal executive & Assistance Manager. Work-life balance is highly practiced in PayPal whereby we are not encouraged to stay back after our working hours without any monetary benefits. There is no bossy attitude in any management stage as all of the staffs including the cleaners are treated equally. HR plays a great role in ensuring all the PayPal staffs adhere to the company's core values.

Pros

Friendly people + working environment + work-life balance

Cons

none

Company under new management

PayPal does not care about their employees as they used to. Sign of the times. Don't care for structure or environment now. I have nothing good to say about them any longer.

Pros

Some benefits

Cons

Easily terminated

PayPal cares - used to care about their employees

Don't get me wrong there are still many managers there that care but overall PayPal got hire happy and hired groups from competing companies so it became very lop sided and too many conflict of interests. Its what made me end my 13 year career with them.

Provides banking options to the underserved, worldwide

Worked at personal workspace the majority of the day, looking at computer screens and analyzing data. Deciding a correct course of action for each case you review. Reaching out to customers with any questions about account. There was not much interaction between employees, as the positions were metrics-driven, so you could not afford to lose focus or talk to other employees. The hardest part of the job was the frequent moves and supervisor changes. Some moves found people in a job they did not have the skill set for, but there was no moving back or accommodations made--you had to learn and meet the new metrics or lose your PayPal career. The most enjoyable part of the job was feeling like I made a difference for our customers.

Pros

Flexible work schedules 4 x 10, 3 x 12, 8 x 5

Cons

You were just a number no matter how long you worked there

people are fun to work with

The company is run without regards to the employees. There is no commitment to the workers. would not recommend. The managers have no idea what is going on.

Great Company

I love the Work life balance, and depending on your department flexi time is awesome, the pay is below industry standard and so are the perks but if your dedicated and work hard the rewards are there to be taken.
