I worked at Visa Inc. as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

The professionalism, procedures and structure of Visa is unsurpassed. This is the most intelligent and focused group I've ever worked with. I enjoyed the 'formal' atmosphere and the dedication to meeting deadlines.

Cons

This is a double-edged sword - While the projects have assertive delivery dates; there is also not much room or time to make personal connections. This is truly WORK and not play. One has to understand and be comfortable with the formality and executive feel of this company to be happy working here. If you're looking for a layed-back environment; this is not the company to work for.

Advice to Management

There is some redundancy to the procedures (marketing campaign department) - does everything need to be triple checked? If so, this seems like a waste of money and resources. Review procedures with employees and be clear on expectations.

    I have been working at Visa Inc. full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, reasonable hours, stable business model, good opportunities for advancement for competent employees, good professional development programs. New younger leadership team has refreshed a company culture that had grown stale.

    Cons

    Work force is older, with many folks waiting for retirement. Takes SO long to get anything done because of PTO schedules and bureaucracy. People LOVE to complain.

    Advice to Management

    Keep renovating the company culture, and preserve the emphasis on employee work-life balance
