This is really sad.. unfortunately only engineers on the ground get impacted who are building stuff and making impact. Horrible leaders are not impacted. Over the years PayPal has become a place of a-- licking leadership.. they just ensure they don't go against their bosses and as a result they are always safe despite doing blunders and not delivering anything.
Nowadays in PayPal only relationships matter and not people who make an impact.
