    I have been working at Visa Inc. full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company is profitable, benefits are great and the gym is very good

    Cons

    The technology is horrendous, culture of risk-avoidance, ridiculous policies around security which is almost understandable, but also working remotely, free refreshments (very strict), alcohol and expenses. All of the internal systems are IE based and impossible to use, the process and beauracracy is unbelievable and the resolution for any problem is to schedule an endless string of meetings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-think every technical system from the viewpoint of an actual user, not from the IT dept. requirements. Stop pinching pennies on stupid restrictions and try to cultivate a place that people want to show up at (hard to find daily motivation in great benefits). However top priority should be given to erasing the red tape and creating channels to fast track new ideas. Reward creativity and merit, not tenure...
