Pros

Smart, diverse and professional people and friendly culture. Great benefits and competitive salary/bonuses. Plenty of autonomy. Flexible work schedule (I work from home 1-2x/week).

Cons

It can be a bit political in some groups. New ideas are encouraged, but processes are sometimes slow to change.

Advice to Management

Please maintain the work/life balance and ability for flexible schedules/work from home, which differentiates us from most other companies.

    Pros

    - Decent compensation package
    - Global brand name
    - Respected brand name

    Cons

    - No where close to the Silicon valley culture
    - Politics is one of the worst. Everyone is out to protect their territory. No one thinks of what is the best for the company.
    - Managed services model leads to wastage of time and money way more than any other bay area company.
    - Not a place for "the bright" minded people. Be prepared to become mediocre.
    - Senior management does not connect with employees/ teams - very silo'ed culture.
    - Too many project managers and that derails every project you work on.
    - Too cumbersome a process to deliver anything. amazing nightmare!

    Advice to Management

    Fix the cons if possible, or you will see bright minds leaving or not joining any more.

    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 Management

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