I worked at Visa Inc.

Pros

World class products and services and it's great to be associated with the brand. Co-workers are friendly and it's a collaborative atmosphere.

Cons

Senior management talks about work-life balance but do not acknowledge workloads and regular very long hours and are very reluctant to increase staffing to keep expenses low. Hard work is not generally acknowledged or rewarded. There is a lot of politics and infighting among senior management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work harder to acknowledge and reward the contributions of employees. Staff up appropriately as current workloads are not sustainable and people will leave.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Employees do support each other.

    Cons

    Very poor management. Managers do not care about their employees. No career development. Lots of people leave because of confusing directions. Too much focus on cost cutting. CEO gets millions of dollars while most employees are not getting a pay raise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be realistic and do something to retain talents.

    I worked at Visa Inc.

    Pros

    Benefits are really good. Visa still has a pension program which is good. The company is doing well. There are a lot of good people at Visa.

    Cons

    Poor management. Unfortunately, after going public Visa has changed tremendously, it used to have a family atmosphere/culture now it is completely corrosive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of cutting costs being the number one priority, Visa should try to take more of the market share by innovating new products.
