    I have been working at Visa Inc. full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Tons of smart, experienced people
    Cool projects and products with real impact
    Good work/life balance (mostly)
    Great respectful culture.
    Awesome CEO

    Cons

    Lack of responsibility assumption. Varying focus on execution and responding to colleagues.
    Overly focused on running the business to budget. What you thought you had at the beginning of the year is often not what you end up with, and the outcome of spending receives a lot less consideration than meeting the numbers.

    Advice to Management

    More 'lean methodology' focus on products. I realize it's hard given the focus on security and protecting the brand, but lean methodology in business means perfect does not always win in the market.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Visa Inc. (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    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
