I worked at Visa Inc. full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The salary range is way off between the workers bees and upper management. Management gets paid a lot of money to showcase your work, which more than likely you will not get credit for doing. The benefits they offer are amazing though, so it is a matter of what is important to you.

Cons

For a company who touts themselves as a "technology" company they still manage like an old school bank. Salaries could be better for the people who actually do the hard work and work/life balance could be better. They took away the option of working from home and with a lot of employees commuting up to 70 miles one way, working from home should have stayed. Not a lot of forward thinking and moving up is difficult, especially if upper management does not like you. VERY political.

Advice to Management

Give more chances to people who have actually proven they are hard workers and get the job done, correctly. Start thinking and acting like a technology company, dont just say you are a technology company. Be more flexible and you will have happier employees!

    Pros

    Nice people to work with, great company that cares about its employees, and a lot of great perks including tickets and benefits.

    Cons

    There is a limit of three sodas a day, and the gym could be a lot bigger for the influx of gym goers.


  2. "The right direction"

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

    Pros

    Necessary upgrades and changes being made by new management but it is a slow process. Global company provides a lot of variety in work issues and the ability to impact the global economy in different ways.

    Cons

    Still a many layers of unnecessary process creating very slow decision making and approvals. Travel restrictions for a global company can make collaboration very difficult.
