Dynamic but exhausting

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Visa Inc. as an intern for less than a year

ProsGreat work environment, plenty of projects to keep you busy, co-workers are bright and motivated, very team-oriented

ConsYou can expect to always take work home. Also, since the IPO the concern for employees well-being has been reduced. Turning into a bank.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement is very insulated from the rest of the company, should work to reduce this. Also, create a greater focus on employees.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Unique Business

Senior Business Leader (Former Employee)
Foster City, CA

I worked at Visa Inc. full-time for more than 10 years

ProsSince going public, V feels more like many large public companies in terms of P and L and focusing on shareholder value.

ConsV's corporate culture stems from its days as an payments association. There cultural friction (between association culture and public company) manifest in ways that ultimately burden true innovation (process, committee-based decision making).

Advice to Senior ManagementFind ways to free up innovation.

Generally routine job, great people to work with and at the top level good strategy in place.

Business Analyst (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I worked at Visa Inc. full-time for more than a year

ProsA satisfaction of a large company with a guaranteed business model and market ownership does make one feel good.

ConsA lot of employees are quite complacent and are lifers who focus on things other than workplace.

Advice to Senior ManagementAgility in workplace and continuous challenges are needed, otherwise the place is becoming rapidly like a bureaucracy.

New management represents good opportunities going forward.

Senior Business Leader (Current Employee)
Foster City, CA

I have been working at Visa Inc. full-time for more than 3 years

ProsOver the past 6 months, the entire top management team has been replaced by fresh/ young leaders. For example Visa's President is 37 years old and from what I have see/hear from so far, is very dynamic.

ConsVisa has a legacy, bureaucratic culture and it might take time for the new management team to change that. Hopefully the new management that shake that up.
