Actual Tweets from Rakesh Agrawal
We know from past experience that anytime you have PayPal employees jumping ship its for a good reason and something at the company doesn’t seem quite right. A few months ago PayPal president David Marcus sent out a company wide memo telling people to use the PayPal App. We all know the PayPal app has many issues and many people don’t like it. David Marcus in a memo that was leaked and originally obtained by VB News told employees to quit if they weren’t going to use PayPal.
Here is a quote from David Marcus:
In closing, if you are one of the folks who refused to install the PayPal app or if you can’t remember your PayPal password, do yourself a favor, go find something that will connect with your heart and mind elsewhere.
According to VB Some people at the company’s San Jose, Calif., headquarters, which employs around 2,000 people, were unhappy to have their jobs threatened for not downloading an app or forgetting their PayPal password. PayPal allegedly steals from it’s users and has a high turnover rate among its employees.
