I have been working at Visa Inc. as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

Some good people to work with, very interesting, challenging work. Excellent benefits and a stable company.

Cons

A LOT of politics and too much empire guarding - could be so much greater.

Advice to Management

Work to the greater good of Visa, not just your individual department goals.

    "Such a shame. Should be great, but politics trumps empowerment at every turn!"

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Visa Inc. full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - decent salaries + strong benefits
    - great global brand
    - exposure to great partners (sponsorship, social media etc)
    - amazing business model that continues to make money regardless of business-stifling processes and top-heavy decision making

    Cons

    - takes politics to a new level of almost business prevention
    - departmental leadership teams who crave engagement yet are shocked by low morale due to lack of autonomy given to functional teams by those very same people
    - culture of fear of going against the status quo

    Advice to Management

    Trust your very talented workforce and empower them to do and own the work they are capable of delivering for you.
