    Disapproves of CEO

    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.

    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.
