I have been working at Visa Inc. full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Visa plays an interesting role in the payment industry. Globally! Visa offers technology services that are unique and worldwide and employs people from around the world.

Cons

Visa has layers of management that rewards talkers and presenters and not necessarily doers. Sometimes senior management is clueless as to what is really going on below the surface and thus throws money away on half baked ideas and projects.

    I have been working at Visa Inc. full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very dedicated and talented staff. Some people have worked here for over two decades and believe in the core of the business.

    The business model and opportunities for the company are great with many years of growth ahead of it as consumers secularly move from cash to electronic payments. The work is challenging with good opportunities for career growth

    Cons

    Visa has had an unfortunate history of executive management that viewed the company as a bank rather than an innovative payments company, and the current team is no different. An over abundant focus on near term cost reductions consumer the majority of time, rather than a prioritization of investments to the vast opportunities to select from.

    Additionally, many in the upper exec circle have a competitive vs. collaborative attitude that permeate to the lower levels and creates unhealthy conflict.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on what matters -- how do we grow? versus how to we cut costs?
    Give the employees a clear and simple set of goals that they can all rally toward. The clearer these goals are the less conflict there will be
