    Former Intern - Risk Intern in Foster City, CA

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

    Pros

    The HQ is very nice. The recruiters were very approachable and helpful with the interview process. Overall, the facilities are what you would expect of a Fortune 500 company--top notch. The campus is clean, serves great food, and is within walking distance of 20+ restaurants.

    Cons

    None. The experience was great. The internship program at Visa was very well run, including chances to meet with senior level management and execs.

    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.
