    I have been working at Visa Inc. full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Solid brand. Solid Visanet. The new CEO has a big job ahead of him to cut the inefficiencies.

    Cons

    Not able to move quickly or for innovation due to the inefficient organizational structures and processes created for job protection of legacy middle managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a close look at the managers who keep churning good talent. Evaluate why they are still around. What they have actually delivered to the company (and at what cost). How might they may be hindering progress.

    Pros

    Globally recognized and powerful brand empowered through a technology company. A small corporation which allows you to get exposure for your passion and contributions to the business. It is an exciting time to work here as our industry evolves, our company matures, and internal processes strive for continuous improvement.

    Cons

    Company is not operating at the world class standard by its own admission, but striving for excellence with new management to drive us forward. We are confident that we are on a path to get where we need to be as an organization.
