I have been working at Visa Inc. full-time

Pros

Visa is a company with great brand recognition and well positioned for growth with the upswing on the economy. The company is very generous with the 401K matching, but it did get slashed from a 3 to 1 match to a 2 to 1 match. Who knows what else will get cut with the new regime.

Cons

While the company is positioned for growth, it is also trimming fat with the new leadership. It appears that the direction of the company is to be less generous to employees while management reaps all the benefits of the growth.

    I have been working at Visa Inc. full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The best reasons to work at Visa have all evaporated. Once a fine company and good to its people, Visa apparently now exists only to apply $2 billion per quarter to buying back its stock grants to Executives. Benefits are being cut left and right, and its only getting worse.

    Cons

    The most recent employee survey indicated an overwhelming majority of employees believe that you will get fired for speaking the truth. Indeed, we've seen this again and again. Very sad. Senior management has given up on "managing the business" in favor or "managing my career". GIS in particular has become very politically charged. Whole teams of fine experienced people are getting sacked as leadership jockeys for political power.

    I worked at Visa Inc. as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Great work environment, plenty of projects to keep you busy, co-workers are bright and motivated, very team-oriented

    Cons

    You can expect to always take work home. Also, since the IPO the concern for employees well-being has been reduced. Turning into a bank.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is very insulated from the rest of the company, should work to reduce this. Also, create a greater focus on employees.
