    I worked at PayPal full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Opportunities to learn lots of different technologies. In the time I was there, I worked on an application team, operations team, development team and a security team. It kept me interested as I maxed out my learnings at each assignment. The people are amazing. World class engineers everywhere. I really enjoyed working with some of the best in the industry. The leadership team really cares about the employees, they care about the customers. They truly value their people.

    Cons

    Promotions were difficult. Consistently rated in the top 2 tiers (when there were 5) and in or near the top tier (when it was reduced to 3). Just could never get that promotion. Was pacified with huge raises and bonuses, however.
