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.

    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

    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.
