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.

    I have been working at Visa Inc.

    Pros

    Fincially stable, good pay somewhat family friendly but they make it hard to take a vacation

    Cons

    Horrible politics where egos rule over performance
    No clear direction from Upper management but they don't care. Workers are disposable widgets who they use as they please Many VP's are there because of politics not ability and they protect their territory like junkyard dogs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tell the board to change the management The place lacks a human approach For such a successful company there is a lot of turnover and dissatisfaction A bad place to work overall

    Pros

    Talented people, very capable and hardworking

    Cons

    Politics, cronyism, and a sense of hopelessness among emps....looks like everyone is waiting for the severance package...! and they dont care anymore.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to the front line, there are 100s of committed employees who are proud of the company, they helped Visa to become one of the largest IPO....Let them know how important and valuable they are.
