    Pros

    Visa is a great brand that is world -renowned. People are generally capable, smart and easy to work with. Unique industry that you can't get elsewhere. It can take a long time, but once you are promoted its reliatvely easy to get the ear of senior management. Pay is above normal for the area in general, and at least the bonus structure is pretty good. A lot of great people left though since they felt their input was not heard in regards to the changes. Too many difficult people remain that just have good pedigrees. Overall it's OK, but better companies available in Bay area.

    Cons

    Very insular, closed-minded people, too many hours, unorganized, planning process is horrible. Too many people are allowed to hand around for too long, even when they have been written up as harassing employees. The overall work environment is not supportive of each other, but cutthroat and competitive. Visa is still a work in progress since they went public, that will remain for a few years until things work out. Positive that they are looking at the bottom line more closely, but not 100% there yet. I would have a hard time going back as a full time employee, maybe would consider contract.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to your employees and what they are saying - it's cheaper to keep employees than constantly retraining new ones!

    Great salary package, but needs to get organized as a company with a better culture.

    Pros

    Salary and benefits were great. The location is calm and quite if you like that. There's two cafeterias with subsidized food... there's also a starbucks and peet's coffee onsite.... a starbucks and noah's bagel in walking distance. safeway is also in walking distance.....

    Cons

    My manager took no time to train me and the Finance dept is in disarray. Management was changing and new layers were placed on top of other sr mgrs and there were "office politics".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Organize the groups better and communicate and work with your staff at all levels more. Realize that execs are only CFO's, CEO's... not directors or business leaders.
