Advice to ManagementAdvice

While our clients are banks, Visa is not a bank. Our clients need us to be innovative and creative where they cannot. Challenge Visa employees to think bigger and empower them to do bigger--and support these activities with cutting edge resources.

    I have been working at Visa Inc. full-time

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

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