I worked at Visa Inc. full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

In 5 years I got exposure to big projects using C, C++, Java, C#. So personally very rewarding.

Visa encourages individuals to learn more by organizing various classes in the company, providing various online learning resources and lastly you can go to any outside university and take classes there.

Cons

Salaries are not competitive.
There is absolutely no personal life balance :-( But I guess this is how it is in most companies now with the plunging economy.

    I have been working at Visa Inc. full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great work/life balance. Flexibile schedule lets me attend to my kids as needed. Easy to leave the job at the office. Good benefits and decent pay. I have always enjoyed my co-workers, all are very smart, easy to work with and friendly.

    Cons

    The organization is very flat. In order to truly succeed, you have to be willing to move around a lot, play the political game and manage your own career path. Even though it is touted as an innovation company, we tend to work very slowly and cautiously. Not as nimble as most other tech companies.
