    I have been working at Visa Inc. full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Visa is a great company to work for and has many international opportunities. Career progression is in your own hands, very few managers and certainly no one in HR will help you develop so go in with the mind set to make waves and burn your own path. Do not expect people to layout your path for you. Take the bull by the horns and be brave, with that and a measure of respect and dignity you will do well in the company.

    Your work colleagues for the most part will be wonderful and extremely diverse in their thinking and experiences. Skilled, smart and full of industry knowledge. Everyone except HR that is, there might be 5 or 6 people in the entire HR team globally who are clandestine activists among the flock of sheep.

    It has it's problems but I wouldn't let them discourage you from coming here.

    Cons

    For years employee engagement has been a key issue, and frankly a lot of people complete the surveys with high marks so their area doesn't get tasked with fixing their own issues. The underlying issues of the organization are never addressed and the responsibility of engagement is handed down to the employees who said they weren't that engaged to begin with, and they wonder why it never improves...

    HR is at best incompetent and at worst an insidious puppet of senior management.

    Socialization of employees outside of work is extremely limited

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For frontline to middle management, read a management book every few months. If you are in a leadership position you should take it seriously and commit yourself to learn how to be an ever improving leader.

    Senior management, if you could be as transparent as you say you want to be that would be a good start. Having HR do all of your dirty work is wearing thin. Taking down employee comments on the internal social site because they expose your dishonest practices is embarrassing. Also repeatedly saying there are no forced calibrations of performance ratings when every single manager is asked to adjust their ratings to meet targets set by senior management is not transparency.

    From an internal employee relationship viewpoint the executive management and their HR team fail to make any headway on employee engagement and generally agitate the situation with poorly executed last minute strategies which they try sell to us as benefits when they are really cost saving measures designed to make us pay more for something we already have. So, try not to do that or atleast make it less obvious.

    It would be nice if the CEO was based in San Francisco, you know, with the rest of the company. Show some dedication Charlie.
