I have been working at Visa Inc. full-time (more than 5 years)

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.

    I worked at Visa Inc. full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Visa is the leader in payments and offers its employees global opportunities. The financial strength of the company can be seen in their earnings and strong balance sheet. An incredibly talented work force.

    Cons

    Not necessarily a con - just more of a buyer beware - Visa has a new CEO who has an incredibly strong background as a CFO. His first actions have been heavily focused on cost cutting, cutting or curbing innovation investments and cleaning house. If you were one who believed Visa needed a cultural change, than Charlie (the new CEO) may be the right leader to work for going forward.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be Kodak - invest in your future, don't be buried by your past.

    Former Employee - Senior Business Leader in Foster City, CA

    I worked at Visa Inc. full-time (more than 10 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Find ways to free up innovation.
