Pros

Since going public, V feels more like many large public companies in terms of P and L and focusing on shareholder value.

Cons

V's corporate culture stems from its days as an payments association. There cultural friction (between association culture and public company) manifest in ways that ultimately burden true innovation (process, committee-based decision making).

Advice to Management

Find ways to free up innovation.

    Pros

    Immediate manager was outstanding to work for, created an inclusive, thriving, professional atmosphere that recognized and rewarded people. Fun place to work, great people.

    Cons

    Senior management is cleaning house. The competitive headwinds are driving tough decisions, making clear that it's all about the numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Charlie, keep writing your blog.

    Pros

    Visa plays an interesting role in the payment industry. Globally! Visa offers technology services that are unique and worldwide and employs people from around the world.

    Cons

    Visa has layers of management that rewards talkers and presenters and not necessarily doers. Sometimes senior management is clueless as to what is really going on below the surface and thus throws money away on half baked ideas and projects.
