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

    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.

    Pros

    Pay is above market, though not far above market
    Mature people, fairly smart and knowledgeable, reasonable level of professionalism
    Reasonable work-life balance
    Good brand to have on your resume if you are interested in payments

    Cons

    Huge amount of red tape. Culture of using overweight process to squash new people an their enthusiasm.
    99% of people here are stuck. It seems like even 30 year olds are just waiting for their retirement. So weird!
    Absolutely no dynamism in most of company.
    Extremely political, though most employees are mature and professional.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut down the red tape, try to create a more dynamic culture. If hungry people get fired quickly, that will be a long term problem for your company.
