I worked at Visa Inc. full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Strong business which will continue to succeed in spite of itself. Great money for top earners, and good work-life balance.

Cons

What was once an amazing place to work has, sadly, become a company of by-the-numbers management and very little innovation or creativity. There is zero communication from senior "leadership" and change is managed poorly and in a vacuum. Visa continues to think that employees are motivated solely by dollars, yet does not invest in (or care about) its people. Innovation is a buzz word - it's not actually encouraged or supported.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communicate. Invest in your talent. Recognize that your employees are actually key to your success.

    Pros

    VISA has a leading market share in a growth industry which based on its product offering todate will lead to continued success for the next 12-18mths without much need for innovation or great leadership

    Cons

    Transparent communication from the exec leadership team is missing as a consequence morale is very poor, as a consequence great talent is leaving with great IP to join competitive companies, combined with a lack of investment in talent and innovation and a HR function that fails to perform strategically VISA is not a fun place to be today.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start talking with your people and stop considering them as a balance sheet entry

    Pros

    VISA has a brilliant business model that shareholders should delight in.

    Cons

    VISA is currently not living up to its promise of caring about its people. It is in a pause on leadership as the new hirings commence under the CEO and the new president. There is a lack of communication from its senior management to junior staff on the vision, strategy and direction of the company , which has made the morale the lowest in 15 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start talking, start talking fast and start investing in your people, stop thinking about OPEX and think about investing in people who will bring you innovation, especially when you are managing a successful company.
