    Too big for my liking.. but boy do they make the money.

    Staff Software Engineer (Former Employee) Bellevue, WA

    ProsExcellent pay and benefits. I worked in Engineering. The people I worked with were all very smart and great to collaborate with.

    ConsBoo to the corporate large large. Came into Visa via an acquisition, and couldn't stand just how large the company was now. I left.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCompensation is in-line with other companies for base salary for engineers, but no RSU or options makes it less likely for me to stay.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Pros largely outweigh the cons. Good exposure to Ecommerce + Payments Industry

    Senior Quality Assurance Engineer (Current Employee) Bellevue, WA

    ProsSolid company with well known worldwide Brand
    Good pay + benefits (They even offer pension on top of 401-K, paternal leave, 21 PTO days..)
    Get to work in a myriad of technologies (Microsoft platform + Open Source)
    Good work life balance
    Very collaborative and constatnly evolving environment

    ConsNo private offices
    Limited Remote/WFH options
    Too many meetings + processes that can interfere with day to day work
    Subsidiary companies such as PlaySpan and Authorize.NET aren't fully integrated within the parent company (Visa) with each having their own set of policies//tools/office environments
    In Bellevue there is no signage,not many events/goodies and no free parking

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease offer free parking and Visa signage in Bellevue
    A cafeteria would be nice along with more perks similar to the Foster City office
    Offer stock options to all employees

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
