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

Pros

Pay is above average; locations are great; cutting edge tech

Cons

Technology company run by banking/financial "experts". Makes tons of money but the wallet collects dust. If you value technology, run away.

Advice to Management

Stop considering ROI and realize you're running a technology company in the financial industry. Stop focusing on ROI and invest in tech like mobile payments or you will die a slow painful tech death

    "Miserable and soul destroying"

    Pros

    Good benefits, decent salary, some very decent people, great business.

    Cons

    The business is very silo'd so some teams are great whilst some teams are miserable. It's hit or miss. This review is only for the Finance organization.

    Management openly bragged about how they would get women to resign by making their lives miserable until they couldn't take it anymore. Some managers would use foul language at their direct reports calling them "f@@@ing idiots" and "stupid imbeciles". HR turned a blind eye. Complete lack of mentoring, coaching or succession planning unless you were part of the elite from Ivy League schools. Wish I had the guts to stand up for those who were subjected to the abuse outlined above but I feared for my job. A miserable 5 years of my life until I got up the courage to leave.

    Advice to Management

    Get an external firm to do a proper review of your management practices - they are a mess. Respect your staff. All of them. Diversity is not a dirty word.

    Pros

    Motivated employees and a diverse mix of people. Sector and market leader. Company performs well and delivers on its promise to stakeholders.

    Cons

    Leadership uninspiring, employees sometimes left with conflicting directions. Work climate is often political. Executive management in poor alignment with each other which trickles down to entire organization.

    Advice to Management

    Is there a leader capable of crafting a vision for the whole organization.
    Lessen the piecemeal articulation of the company messages or positions.
