Company culture

Seeking yes people. Conformative/robots.

Gender Equality

Depending on race.

Career Development

It's about who you know. Skill/background does not make a difference. Helps to be in the crowd.

Overall Compensation for your work

Performs rating and compensation does not go hand in hand at the lower level.

Company Image

No. They have become so main stream they have forgotten the human aspect. It's about lining the hire up pockets. Lower level and smaller departments are forgotten about. Harder to get changes made.

Company culture

Great environment socially for young people. Made many good friends, especially towards the beginning. However, PayPal is oddly strict with things that are very lax at other companies. (Cell phones, monitoring breaks, etc...) You could wear anything you wanted basically, which often times made it hard to take colleagues or the work envirnment seriously. The cleaning/janitorial company PayPal employed was bad, possibly awful. The bathrooms were a nightmare, there were stains on the carpet from where the cleaning staff would drag garbage bags, and don't even think about using the cups they provide, unless you wanna get sick or taste whatever drink was in it last.

Support from Management

Leadership couldn't seem to accomplish anything, really. Throughout my 3 years there, we received a myriad of empty promises. Probably a little less than 6 months in to my time at PayPal, it was obvious that we could rarely rely on anything promised by leadership. Management and leadership provided very little support, often setting extremely unrealistic expectations for agents, in regards to metrics and performance. Overall, most managers are uninvolved with their direct reports.

Company culture

The culture is highly unprofessional. People are allowed to wear anything which includes shorts, flip-flops and especially most annoying, headphones. It is extremely difficult to trust and respect a manager who dresses in cargo shorts with holes in them and a dirty t-shirt that can barely cover HER goiter/stomach roll and which also exposes all of her tattoos. Similarly for men it is not easy to look someone in the eye and respect them when they're wearing a leather kilt (this actually happened) or you can't see their face because it is obscured by a beard down to his waist. At least he braided it... Clothes also seem to have not seen the inside of a washing machine in several weeks. Also, they seem to take the service animal allowance just a little too far: I saw a woman who had a "qualifying" service animal for her very apparent emotional needs: It was a small schnauzer that she pushed around the building in a baby carriage stroller - to meetings, the cafeteria, wherever!

Support from Management

We were told what our goals were without input from the rank and file as to whether this was realistically attainable. For over a month the managers were unavailable during work hours. Turns out they were all in training to learn how to do our jobs because they had no idea what the position entailed. Talk about cart before the horse scenario.
