I worked at Visa Inc. full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Visa is still the industry leader in payments and the company in general is very successful and profitable in a world where digital payments are topping cash payments.

Cons

New CEO and management are going through an identity crisis. They cannot attract "Silicon Valley" types because the management are all former management from financial institutions who cut costs that benefit employees and spend money in ideas which don't work. Are you a technology company or a financial company?!?

Advice to Management

You are running a successful company into the ground. All former executives have either left the company or have been severed.

    I have been working at Visa Inc. full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    nice perks, stable employment, good benefits

    Cons

    People get promoted because they kiss up and slap down. One guy was promoted to director, and he would "work from home" and have sex with girls he met on dating websites pof and ok cupid. old boy's network, ok for guys to work from home and screw around. The policy is not even for working from home. Very male oriented in management.

    Advice to Management

    Watch what your directors and managers are doing when they "work from home". Stop enabling male gigolo behavior. It seems very cut throat and toxic environment.
