I don’t believe Visa is extracting value from its employees

Pros

Talented employees at peer level
Fair benefits package
Difficult to find more positive attributes, Cafeteria is OK, Gym is reasonable

Cons

Employee engagement is absent
Senior Leadership is abysmal; CEO has surrounded himself with those unable or unwilling to challenge him
Mid-level leaders lack the authority to lead effectively; many have become comfortable maintaining the status quo
Talented employees have
HR is sadly impotent

Advice to Management

Time for significant leadership change which should allow the insular culture to improve
Time for HR to step up and implement targeted leadership development, professional leadership coaching, genuine succession planning
Start allowing talent to blossom and succeed

    Pros

    * Great pay
    * OK benefits
    * Well recognized brand

    Cons

    Company is severely understaffed. We are continuously told to do more with less. When staff tries to explain the limitations with the manpower available, we are told that if we can't do the job then we must not be needed. Why not just have another group (that has more staff) take over our responsibilities? It has only gotten worse since the IPO and all anyone cares about is the all mighty dollar.

    Advice to Management

    Stop outsourcing all of the jobs to Singapore. Qualified people should be hired regardless of location.

    Pros

    Visa is the leader in the payments industry and as such allows me to learn and grow my skills. I have a lot of job satisfaction and I work with a great team.

    Cons

    Visa is still working to create a unified organization. There are still fiefdoms among the senior management team which can result in inconsistent employee experiences.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and rein in the 'cowboys' in the organization. The people in the organization want to continue to work for a world leader.
