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

    Pros

    Working with talented and motivated people who also consider the rest of their life a priority. Compensation is fair and benefits are good. New leadership is making big changes but too early to tell how broad the impact will be. Good opportunities to move around within the company once you "get" the place. Significant resources to work on tough problems. Can be political, but very unusual when if it becomes unprofessional.

    Cons

    Can be an exceptionally challenging culture to move fast and be innovative. Historically, management was very risk averse. Many layers of reviews and approvals that never seem to end. Constant reprioritization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Double down on change and making things easier to get done. Cut out all the red tape and reviews, they do not lead to good decisions and are a drag on everything. Train managers on change management and drive the culture change everyone wants, but had given up on at some point in their time at Visa.

    Pros

    Some good people to work with, very interesting, challenging work. Excellent benefits and a stable company.

    Cons

    A LOT of politics and too much empire guarding - could be so much greater.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work to the greater good of Visa, not just your individual department goals.
