    Pros

    benefits, peets coffee, popcorn fridays, shuttle busses, costco close by

    Cons

    Sr. Mgmt is lost, and hiring incapable leaders
    Managers either don't manage or manage by fear because they are afraid of losing their jobs
    New Leaders are brought it, however they are worse then the long-tenured employees that were let go. It is pure chaos and they keep making org changes hoping that will make things better but moving a few people around doesn't solve the core issues.
    There are many layoffs, but not communication as to why. Morale is poor, employees aren't engaged and they fear that they will lose their job since.
    HR is an absolute mess. Sr. Leaders don't understand what "change" looks like nor how to implement it. HR needs a decisive Leader, one who understands how to turn things around and push HR agendas through. Not one who is too scared to stand up for what he believes in.

    Bottom Line: for all those thinking about joining Visa, stay away, at least for now, until Mgmt. figures out how to Lead, appreciate the employees, and truly walks the talk - which they are not doing now. Don't leave a great company to come here - this is not an innovative company.

    Advice to Management

    Start showing you care about the employees and engage them more. There is al ot of lip service but not enough action.

    Pros

    Friendly environment, good management and good people.

    Cons

    For me it was the commute but that is not the companies falt. The other thing is that they didn't hire me directly.

    Advice to Management

    Be more up front with contract employees.
