Great internship opportunity

Former Intern - Enterprise Risk Management Intern in San Francisco, CA
Former Intern - Enterprise Risk Management Intern in San Francisco, CA

I worked at Visa Inc. as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

-Co-workers great at providing the necessary background information on the industry
-Very cordial, respectful, and helpful work environment, from senior management all the way to analysts
- Meaningful projects from day one that were often international in scope

Cons

-High learning curve at the beginning of the internship process, as the payments industry is more complex than it looks
-HR was not very clear about full time opportunities after the internship process and should have a more formal internship to analyst process

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep doing what you're doing - the payments systems industry is a growth industry and will continue to be one for the foreseeable future

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

    Pros

    Good benefits and bonus plan.

    Cons

    Filled with a lot of unproductive a** kissers waiting for retirement.

    Promotions and hirings happen more often than not depending on who you know. The 'old boys' network still exists here.

    Stay away, unless you want small chunks of your soul chipped away everyday.

    Office environment is dull and lifeless.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Visa Inc. as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    They give you a lot of responsibility, and autonomy to lead the project your way. The team has a lot of expertise and is always available to help. The projects work in a consulting fashion. If someone from other department needs your expertise, they will file a request for a project.

    Cons

    You have a team but you will conduct the project on your own, or with external consulting firms or agencies

    Recommends
    Neutral Outlook
    Approves of CEO
