Innovation is difficult, lot of politics. Old timers don't want to change things and hold onto their positions. No budgets for external trainings/conferences.

    I have been working at Visa Inc. full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The people at Visa are amazingly smart and dedicated. My experience was excellent, at least until the new management. The benefits are also quite good, not at a Google-level, but still very competitive.

    Cons

    All new leadership in most of the lines of businesses have left many employees shell-shocked and departments chaotic. What was an extremely people-friendly and supportive place to work is starting to look more like Oracle's approach to people management. Not good.

    Advice to Management

    No point in giving advice, as I seriously doubt they would listen.
