Current Employee - Senior Business Leader

I have been working at Visa Inc.

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 ManagementAdvice

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

Doesn't Recommend
Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Visa Inc.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I have been working at Visa Inc.

    Pros

    Great worldwide brand recognition
    Convenient location near major freeways
    Deep pockets for acquisitions
    Adequate pay and benefits
    Occasional talented colleagues

    Cons

    Incompetent upper management
    Decision and management by committee
    Divisive, political organization
    Lack vision; follower not leader
    Expected to work on vacation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your employees. Cannot rely on an army of consultants who have no vested interest in the company for long term growth. Support employee development and provide career opportunities from within or expect mass exodus when the economy improves.
