Disapproves of CEO

Pros

World class products and services and it's great to be associated with the brand. Co-workers are friendly and it's a collaborative atmosphere.

Cons

Senior management talks about work-life balance but do not acknowledge workloads and regular very long hours and are very reluctant to increase staffing to keep expenses low. Hard work is not generally acknowledged or rewarded. There is a lot of politics and infighting among senior management.

Advice to Management

Work harder to acknowledge and reward the contributions of employees. Staff up appropriately as current workloads are not sustainable and people will leave.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Talented people, very capable and hardworking

    Cons

    Politics, cronyism, and a sense of hopelessness among emps....looks like everyone is waiting for the severance package...! and they dont care anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Get to the front line, there are 100s of committed employees who are proud of the company, they helped Visa to become one of the largest IPO....Let them know how important and valuable they are.
