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

    Pros

    Fantastic brand, extraordinary resources, some great people -- they've been successful somehow, of course. Depending on your responsibilities and projects it could be fun and productive -- but very dependent on who your manager is, if your executive is respected across the org, and if the execs are in fact working together on a given business issue.

    Cons

    A lot of entitled/tenured employees that just wanted to do things as they always have and not evolve or work as a team. Can be stifling for people that thrive on high productivity and forward momentum. Slow and unclear decision-making processes. Highly politicized culture, top-heavy (overstaffed at VP+), dysfunctional relationships across groups and managers. Were not many well-qualified, experienced, confident and respected leaders; instead, a lot of political hedging and opinion-shifting depending on the politics of each situation - hard to tell which way the wind would blow on a given day.

    I worked at Visa Inc. as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good business model and profitable

    Cons

    Whimsical and unprofessional managers, Not a good place for entrepreneurial and proactive work style due to huge bureaucratic and political hierarchy.

    Advice to Management

    Clean up your middle level management otherwise you will become redundant in a fast changing business world, as your business model will face challenge and at that time your bureaucracy will prove a burden.
