Pros

Good pay and benefits, on site gym with free classes, good cafeteria, there are still good people here.

Cons

New management created atmosphere of fear and intimidation. Nothing can be done anymore. Processes beyond complicated and hours are spent on documentation that nobody reads. The best people are looking for a job or hoping for a package. Moral is lowest I've seen in 15 years. It is so sad that I couldn't come up with a single professional "pro". It is miserable now.

Advice to Management

Get over yourself. You are not improving things, you are making them worse. Command and controls doesn't bring talent and stifles innovation.

    Pros

    Tons of opportunities to advance within the company for those with motivation and proven work history. Great bi-yearly feedback for all employees with the chance for annual raises. Best benefits I've ever found with a company. Really treat their employees well and make you feel valued, even in entry-level positions.

    Cons

    As with any large company, getting ahead sometimes felt a little political and dependent on one's connections more than ones actual abilities. Also a pretty stringent schedule and sometimes pretty demanding work load.

    Advice to Management

    Great job, keep taking care of your employees.

    Pros

    Pay check plus benefits and the name on your resume. Geographically easy to get to from most of the Bay Area. There are some very wonderful folks working very hard there.

    Cons

    Culture of back stabbing; it is all about me; outright lying to staff and clients; not the most progressive of environments and out of the box thinking generally not encouraged.

    Advice to Management

    Weed out the self promoters who have little value for others and little value for Visa or its history/culture.
