What's the engineering culture like at PayPal? I'm interviewing for a React role on a JavaScript team. Do people like it there?

What sort of package (base, bonus, signon, stock) would be considered good for someone with 3 years exp?

    We almost don't have engineering culture, at least not like we had in 2013. Overall, it's decent but not worth joining when there are plenty better companies around if you are in the Bay Area

      PayPal more like a bank nowadays, almost no engineering efforts in tech or open source which is company supported. Some engineers do small open source projects within the team if the manager has decent engineering background. But it's very rare. Most of the time you will be spending a lot of time in meetings with product and other non tech ppl

      @Molibden your comment is generalization of a very small set of teams. Couldn't disagree more

      @Hogg36 agreed, this isn't the first post I've seen Molbiden trash talk PayPal with the same kind of diatribe. My personal experience has been absolutely terrific but yes that's very team dependent.

      Maybe find another org within Paypal ? Payments might not be that great

    Don't agree with this. There is tons of nice work going on in JS side. Also Just search PayPal and nodejs, there's ton of open source projects, conf talks etc.

      I don't know about package, but if you are SE3 then base would be around $130k plus 10% bonus and RSUs
