Pros

A satisfaction of a large company with a guaranteed business model and market ownership does make one feel good.

Cons

A lot of employees are quite complacent and are lifers who focus on things other than workplace.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Agility in workplace and continuous challenges are needed, otherwise the place is becoming rapidly like a bureaucracy.

    Pros

    Excellent bonus structure for folks at the very top

    Cons

    One of the first companies i have seen where the annual ratings (based on which salary hikes and bonuses are decided) are decided by senior management even before employees get an opportunity to write their performance reviews. Its kind of backwards. Most companies i have worked - employees are first asked to write their reviews and accomplishments based on which managers decide how to rate the employees. Visa has it backward in that - managers and executives - rate, calibrate and finalize ratings and hikes - even before the performance system is opened for employees. How wierd? Whats the point of asking employees to write their accomplishments and annual performance summary?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not sure it matters. If it does - please read the Cons and do something about it. Time to get honest about rewarding people that break their backs. Spread the wealth.

    Pros

    I could not find much. but the best thing is you do a 9 to 5 standard job. Ideally should not get sucked like a typical silicon valley company.

    Cons

    Processes makes it tough to do your work. General engineering not as smart as you are used to. They have a lot of money power so you can see a lot of worthless people sitting holding their job
