    "Visa - not a place for open and honest communication, where employees are encouraged to be creative and innovative"

    • Senior Management
    Current Employee - Senior Business Leader in Foster City, CA
    Current Employee - Senior Business Leader in Foster City, CA
    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Visa is a stable company with a strong business model

    Cons

    There is a lot of favoritism at Visa and it is a place where employees are encouraged quite bluntly to be "submissive" to their managers. There is not much of encouragement for employees to think outside the box and new ideas may not be well received. The work environment is not flexible, not supportive of work-life balance. There is not an open and honest environment supported by management. There is also no upward feedback (formal annual upward feedback mechanism is not implemented).

    Advice to Management

    In order for the company to lead into the future, management needs to be more in tune with employee's needs- flexibility, open and honest feedback, needs to implement a formal annual upward feedback mechanism, greater support for telecommuting.
