Approves of CEO

I worked at Visa Inc. full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Since going public, V feels more like many large public companies in terms of P and L and focusing on shareholder value.

Cons

V's corporate culture stems from its days as an payments association. There cultural friction (between association culture and public company) manifest in ways that ultimately burden true innovation (process, committee-based decision making).

Advice to Management

Find ways to free up innovation.

    I worked at Visa Inc. full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Visa is the leader in payments and offers its employees global opportunities. The financial strength of the company can be seen in their earnings and strong balance sheet. An incredibly talented work force.

    Cons

    Not necessarily a con - just more of a buyer beware - Visa has a new CEO who has an incredibly strong background as a CFO. His first actions have been heavily focused on cost cutting, cutting or curbing innovation investments and cleaning house. If you were one who believed Visa needed a cultural change, than Charlie (the new CEO) may be the right leader to work for going forward.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be Kodak - invest in your future, don't be buried by your past.
