I have been working at Visa Inc. full-time for less than a year

Pros

Pay is above average; locations are great; cutting edge tech

Cons

Technology company run by banking/financial "experts". Makes tons of money but the wallet collects dust. If you value technology, run away.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop considering ROI and realize you're running a technology company in the financial industry. Stop focusing on ROI and invest in tech like mobile payments or you will die a slow painful tech death

    Miserable and soul destroying

    I worked at Visa Inc.

    Pros

    Good benefits, decent salary, some very decent people, great business.

    Cons

    The business is very silo'd so some teams are great whilst some teams are miserable. It's hit or miss. This review is only for the Finance organization.

    Management openly bragged about how they would get women to resign by making their lives miserable until they couldn't take it anymore. Some managers would use foul language at their direct reports calling them "f@@@ing idiots" and "stupid imbeciles". HR turned a blind eye. Complete lack of mentoring, coaching or succession planning unless you were part of the elite from Ivy League schools. Wish I had the guts to stand up for those who were subjected to the abuse outlined above but I feared for my job. A miserable 5 years of my life until I got up the courage to leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get an external firm to do a proper review of your management practices - they are a mess. Respect your staff. All of them. Diversity is not a dirty word.

    I have been working at Visa Inc. full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    For the most part, nice and smart people
    Great work-life balance
    Powerful, recognizable global brand
    Solid compensation packages

    Cons

    Lack of innovation
    Constant org changes
    Clunky processes
    Boring corporate location

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve employee morale and halt the constant org changes for a little while. Invest in innovations that will power the business in the next 25 years, not the past 50.
