No opinion of CEO

I worked at Visa Inc. full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Fantastic Benefits, Good Communication, Global Opportunities

Cons

Slow to change
seemed to have lost their inventive spirit
Dull quarterly state of the business reviews
A lot of sense of entitlement
People kept in the company just because they've been around for a while
Too Formal

Advice to Management

Accept change more enthusiastically, don't just talk about it
Lead the industry in innovation, don't just ride the wave of cash coming in...eventually it will end.
Be more enthusiastic during your business conference calls
Spend more money on your employees, as great as your benefits are you are flush with tons of cash, give more of that to the people who make it happen every day.
Make your HR department more friendly and less about entitlement
Do more in the communities where you have employees
You're too formal, relax and have fun!

    Legal has large say given multi-billion awards against the company and legal has not been able to avoid. Small offices, lots of cubicles.

    I have been working at Visa Inc. full-time

    Pros

    benefits, peets coffee, popcorn fridays, shuttle busses, costco close by

    Cons

    Sr. Mgmt is lost, and hiring incapable leaders
    Managers either don't manage or manage by fear because they are afraid of losing their jobs
    New Leaders are brought it, however they are worse then the long-tenured employees that were let go. It is pure chaos and they keep making org changes hoping that will make things better but moving a few people around doesn't solve the core issues.
    There are many layoffs, but not communication as to why. Morale is poor, employees aren't engaged and they fear that they will lose their job since.
    HR is an absolute mess. Sr. Leaders don't understand what "change" looks like nor how to implement it. HR needs a decisive Leader, one who understands how to turn things around and push HR agendas through. Not one who is too scared to stand up for what he believes in.

    Bottom Line: for all those thinking about joining Visa, stay away, at least for now, until Mgmt. figures out how to Lead, appreciate the employees, and truly walks the talk - which they are not doing now. Don't leave a great company to come here - this is not an innovative company.

    Advice to Management

    Start showing you care about the employees and engage them more. There is al ot of lip service but not enough action.
