Employees rate San Francisco 2% lower than the overall average
I have been working at Visa Inc. full-time (Less than a year)
As a new grad, I was hesitant to choose Visa. Company reviews were mixed, and it's not the most sexy company. However, I'm glad I did. There are some very smart folks around the Bay area offices that take in interest in supporting you as a new grad. Many company resources available as well. Upper management receptive to ideas and change.
Phenomenal benefits (401k matching, good health insurance, etc.) on par (or better) with top companies (but does not include perks).
Visa has an average tenure that is years longer (like 4X) than the Bay Area average which is a testament to opportunities here and employee willingness to stick around.
Experiences vary wildly by location and team
Though benefits are great here, perks are in no way comparable with other companies in the Bay. Not good
Too much focus on security
I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Visa Inc. (San Francisco, CA).
Began with two rounds of phone interviews spread out over two months. During which time the recruiter was terrible and wold never let me know if they were even interested in me. They made me wait another two months while they dealt with a "crush of activities" at the end of the FY. Final round was an in person super day consisting of four interviews, at the VP and Director level. Mostly cased base, some of it qualitative, some quantitative. The worst part of this experience was Visa telling me to stay two nights at a hotel and then telling me I violated there protocol and because of that they could only reimburse me for one night. I would caution anyone out there applying to this company against trusting the HR department. They are flat out liars and are concerned about there numbers and the bottom line much more so than they are about getting quality applicants. Best advice I can give you, join MasterCard or American Express
