A good place to work if you aren't too ambitious and if you like a stable and boring routine.

I worked at Visa Inc.

Pros

Visa is a solid and respected company. Most of the employees seem to be satisfied with doing their daily job, getting a regular and reasonable paycheck and good benefits. There is a great employees cafeteria. The company is generous to employees and is usually flexible to accommodate their needs.

Cons

In the finance and accounting area, there is very little that changes and innovation is not encouraged. The organization is highly bureaucratic and there seems to be little incentive to improve anything.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you want your processes to improve, you need to evaluate whether your managers have the capability to understand the issues, and the motivation to initiate helpful changes.

    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
