Pros

Visa is a solid and respected company. Most of the employees seem to be satisfied with doing their daily job, getting a regular and reasonable paycheck and good benefits. There is a great employees cafeteria. The company is generous to employees and is usually flexible to accommodate their needs.

Cons

In the finance and accounting area, there is very little that changes and innovation is not encouraged. The organization is highly bureaucratic and there seems to be little incentive to improve anything.

Advice to Management

If you want your processes to improve, you need to evaluate whether your managers have the capability to understand the issues, and the motivation to initiate helpful changes.

    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.

    Be realistic and do something to retain talents.
