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

Pros

Very profitable company, smart people.

Cons

There is a lot of resistance to spending money on headcount or resources even for approved programs. Software to get daily work done is old and management doesn't want to spend the money to get better tools. The typical big company politics slow processes. People fight for funding.

    I have been working at Visa Inc. full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Over the past 6 months, the entire top management team has been replaced by fresh/ young leaders. For example Visa's President is 37 years old and from what I have see/hear from so far, is very dynamic.

    Cons

    Visa has a legacy, bureaucratic culture and it might take time for the new management team to change that. Hopefully the new management that shake that up.

    I worked at Visa Inc. full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are above average. The people are dedicated to accomplishing the tasks at hand and truly care for the products and processes they support.

    Cons

    There is a lack of innovation or flexibility. No room for thinking outside the box. Lack of support by HR in regards to supporting employee concerns. Fractured management structure results in employees not having a clear direction on future stability. Too much finger pointing and head hunting..

    Advice to Management

    Open the lines of communication to employees. Trust employees expertise and engage employees for input when decisions impact them. Reconsider management structures in regards to groups reporting to managers that do not have direct engagement in the development and implementation of products and processes.
