    Pros

    Excellent Benefits, Nice Title, Good Salary

    Cons

    Who's driving the bus? The folks in Sr. Management positions in my division are not leaders. The folks in middle Management who are extremely capable, strategic leaders with staff management/staff development expertise are kept from staff leadership roles. There is little inter-departmental communication. The silo-like environment is remarkable. The teflon-coating each area sports ensures that we spend most time in a reactive, "crisis-junkie" environment, rather than planning where we want to be in 5 years and working together to build that reality. Very depressing to be in a company with so little cooperation and communication. Tough. Not used to "coasting" and didn't realize that's what's expected here. "Just play along."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We love Charlie's talk, especially his theory on how leaders need to lead ... but unless Sr. Management is held accountable to lead the way Charlie suggests ... we will not see the change we so earnestly need.

    I worked at Visa Inc. full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The salary is decent, the managers aren't that tough on you, management occasionally gives out free pizza and chinese food. Air conditioning, lots of space at your work station

    Cons

    Very few breaks, only 30 minutes for lunch, can't use negative words to customers on the phone, way to many calls come in during high peak seasons (summer vacation and winter vacation).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would love for us to be able to be more human with the customers, but I understand that its not managements decision to make, orders com from upstairs...
