Pros

Competitive compensation, nice building environment, on-site gym, shuttles to San Francisco and CalTrain, provides educational growth, promotions available if you're in the right department. Great cafeteria.

Cons

Extremely political, senior management completely out of touch with staff, unorganized org. structure (SVPs report to SVPs), "old-boy" network is out of control.

Advice to Management

Listen to your employees, they offer some great ideas. This stuffy banker's attitude is no longer accepted. Don't worry about impressing your boss or not saying "the right thing".

    Advice to Management

    Management just looks forward and just believes in pushing they people. They never see back to see lessons learnt from past decision. Every time they sing the song of "this time it will work".
    Everybody is waiting for the jackpot, and that’s why every 6 months there is a reorg. Even if you join visa as a curious, enthusiastic person, in 1 year you will be totally institutionalized by VISA. Always find a process to stop the work from happening. Most of the people use process like armor.

    Wakeup management...Even after a disastrous employee survey, you guys are still sleeping...Board members, are you going to wait for another 2 years to see how many employees left?
