Pros

Good business model and profitable

Cons

Whimsical and unprofessional managers, Not a good place for entrepreneurial and proactive work style due to huge bureaucratic and political hierarchy.

Advice to Management

Clean up your middle level management otherwise you will become redundant in a fast changing business world, as your business model will face challenge and at that time your bureaucracy will prove a burden.

    Pros

    In 5 years I got exposure to big projects using C, C++, Java, C#. So personally very rewarding.

    Visa encourages individuals to learn more by organizing various classes in the company, providing various online learning resources and lastly you can go to any outside university and take classes there.

    Cons

    Salaries are not competitive.
    There is absolutely no personal life balance :-( But I guess this is how it is in most companies now with the plunging economy.
