    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. 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.
