    I have been working at Visa Inc. full-time

    Pros

    Interesting work . Good people to work with. Current CEO seem to be more focussed on people. Looking forward to all the changes he will make.

    Cons

    Very few good people managers. Most managers are individual contributors looking out for themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Management need to keep a close eye on not just employee turnover but also reasons for internal mobility. Managers cannot be promoted just because of their work, you need a complete evaluation in terms of people management before they move up. There is a toxic culture of protectionism and servile attitude in some departments.
