Current Employee - Business Leader in Foster City, CA

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.

    Pros

    location was easy to get to, right off the 101/92
    I can't think of anything else I liked about working at Visa! Honestly, I can't!

    Cons

    weird titles, can't tell who is Sr. to you and Jr. to you
    lots of people who are looking for something to do
    worked in e-commerce, had no idea how the rest of the business worked (no visibility)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can't expand globally to 5 different regions at the same time without increasing investment in product
