I have been working at Visa Inc. full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Solid brand. Solid Visanet. The new CEO has a big job ahead of him to cut the inefficiencies.

Cons

Not able to move quickly or for innovation due to the inefficient organizational structures and processes created for job protection of legacy middle managers.

Advice to Management

Take a close look at the managers who keep churning good talent. Evaluate why they are still around. What they have actually delivered to the company (and at what cost). How might they may be hindering progress.

    I have been working at Visa Inc. full-time

    Pros

    benefits and compensation is adequate. new HR leadership, hoping they can turn the HR team around

    Cons

    HR has been a revolving door for Leadership. There is no plan or direction and the employees of Visa suffer because there is a great deal of incompetence at the Sr. HR level, the ones who drive the vision. HR is very political and suffocating. Sr. Leaders are threatened by employees that bring new ideas to the table so they keep them down and don't acknowledge or promote them. If you are smart, driven and want to make an impact, Visa HR isn't the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    HR Sr. Leadership has to figure out what "best in class HR" looks like. Need to clean house of those SBL's who have been in their position too long. They lack the knowledge, leadership and competence to build a world class HR department.

    Pros

    tough one. interesting industry to be in. Lots going on. Good place to become a subject matter expert.

    Cons

    1) way too many meetings, pre-meetings
    2) no one cares or is accountable or takes any risks
    3) culture is a mess, no one wants to be here and turnover is very high
    4) according to a reliable source, HR was going to pay employees to write good reviews on this site. This is indicative of the culture (cover-up mentality instead of actually fixing the problem)

    Advice to Management

    make better processes
    fire bad managers
    be better risk takers
    define if you are a financial services company or a tech company-- YOU CANNOT PLAY BOTH SIDES
