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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Successful global company, well known valuable brand, market leader, compensation including bonus and equity is great, good vacation and other benefits, good work life balance

    Cons

    Uncertainty at present caused by new executive team and changes made, staff generally not sure of direction of company, some great people however also some poorer staff at company, few number of employees so opportunity for advancement and growth can be limited

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clarify direction of the company (on all fronts) to staff

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Nice people to work with, great company that cares about its employees, and a lot of great perks including tickets and benefits.

    Cons

    There is a limit of three sodas a day, and the gym could be a lot bigger for the influx of gym goers.
