I worked at Visa Inc.

Pros

Competitive compensation, nice building environment, on-site gym, shuttles to San Francisco and CalTrain, provides educational growth, promotions available if you're in the right department. Great cafeteria.

Cons

Extremely political, senior management completely out of touch with staff, unorganized org. structure (SVPs report to SVPs), "old-boy" network is out of control.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your employees, they offer some great ideas. This stuffy banker's attitude is no longer accepted. Don't worry about impressing your boss or not saying "the right thing".
