Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Visa Inc. full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Great compensation and bonuses for the expected amount of work

Cons

The new CEO seems to be sucked into the "I want to be friends with my underlings" attitude and the good-all-boy network. It's all the same garbage lip-service saying Visa is innovative, yet nothing is being done or mentioned to promote taking innovative risks. Finance still runs the company with an iron grip, Product and Technology are the stepchildren of the company. The first great change for employees is, we're now allowed to leave without badging out, sad.

Advice to Management

CEO should take the last several years employee surveys seriously and end the culture of dispassion,fear and paralyzing inefficient politics. It all looks rosy when you're making money, but in 3-5 years if you do nothing there's no way your going to be able to pay the really good employees to hang in there. It will be too late to change.
