    I worked at Visa Inc. full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Strong business which will continue to succeed in spite of itself. Great money for top earners, and good work-life balance.

    Cons

    What was once an amazing place to work has, sadly, become a company of by-the-numbers management and very little innovation or creativity. There is zero communication from senior "leadership" and change is managed poorly and in a vacuum. Visa continues to think that employees are motivated solely by dollars, yet does not invest in (or care about) its people. Innovation is a buzz word - it's not actually encouraged or supported.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate. Invest in your talent. Recognize that your employees are actually key to your success.
