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

Pros

- Decent compensation package
- Global brand name
- Respected brand name

Cons

- No where close to the Silicon valley culture
- Politics is one of the worst. Everyone is out to protect their territory. No one thinks of what is the best for the company.
- Managed services model leads to wastage of time and money way more than any other bay area company.
- Not a place for "the bright" minded people. Be prepared to become mediocre.
- Senior management does not connect with employees/ teams - very silo'ed culture.
- Too many project managers and that derails every project you work on.
- Too cumbersome a process to deliver anything. amazing nightmare!

Advice to Management

Fix the cons if possible, or you will see bright minds leaving or not joining any more.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Visa Inc. full-time

    Pros

    Smart, diverse and professional people and friendly culture. Great benefits and competitive salary/bonuses. Plenty of autonomy. Flexible work schedule (I work from home 1-2x/week).

    Cons

    It can be a bit political in some groups. New ideas are encouraged, but processes are sometimes slow to change.

    Advice to Management

    Please maintain the work/life balance and ability for flexible schedules/work from home, which differentiates us from most other companies.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits and bonus plan.

    Cons

    Filled with a lot of unproductive a** kissers waiting for retirement.

    Promotions and hirings happen more often than not depending on who you know. The 'old boys' network still exists here.

    Stay away, unless you want small chunks of your soul chipped away everyday.

    Office environment is dull and lifeless.
