I have been working at Visa Inc. full-time (Less than a year)

For the most part, nice and smart people
Great work-life balance
Powerful, recognizable global brand
Solid compensation packages

Cons

Lack of innovation
Constant org changes
Clunky processes
Boring corporate location

Advice to Management

Improve employee morale and halt the constant org changes for a little while. Invest in innovations that will power the business in the next 25 years, not the past 50.

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

    Pros

    Electronic payments is a strong growth industry with lots of possibilities for success. Visa has a good brand reputation and is the industry leader in market share.

    Cons

    Poor leadership and weak management has resulted in a lot of internal strife during the past year. It is taking its toll on the company's reputation and the good employees are leaving. The company feels like it is headed in the wrong direction.

    Advice to Management

    Stop "fixing" things and get back to running the company and focusing on the clients. Treat employees with respect and value them, and remember that new does not necessarily mean better.

    I have been working at Visa Inc. full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You get to work with some of the best people in the industry and learn a lot from interacting with them. Benefits are better than average, and there's a lot of pride working for a global brand name.

    Cons

    More politics than many companies. Very fast pace of change, very quick turnaround of people in some key roles, leading to some job unstability.
