    I have been working at Visa Inc. full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Inner Mobility - Cultivates Talent - Flat Organization - Smart, Kind, Challenging Leadership - Values-oriented - Good Overall Mission - Excellent Benefits - Collaborative + Collegiality

    Cons

    - Leadership does not clearly articulate strategic priorities for the company to follow - Needs to strike a better balance between empowering local markets and driving a clear vision that they can properly execute - Diversity on board (mostly U.S.-Centric, which shows in how our competitors are out-pacing us around the world) - Though well-intended, would benefit from a President with more technology and international experience ... need more bold thinking and focus - Huge disparity between how titles are awarded in the U.S. and elsewhere in the world. There are Vice Presidents and Senior Directors working on presentations and operational issues in SF versus Directors charged with P&L for business units across an entire sub-region. Would benefit from FEWER title levels at mid to senior management thus allowing for mobility through payscale (e.g. Manager, Director, VP, EVP - done)

    Pros

    Mainly Australians in management. if you are a white boy, fab company.

    Cons

    Most Asians are not invited to the table of influence. Asian Women in Apac office are extremely rare seen in senior management positions. They run diversity discussion to address the issue but it starts with the management comfortable working with their own boys club.

    Pros

    Great brand, other than branding, there is nothing else.

    Cons

    Identity crisis. Visa positions itself as technology company, but deep inside it is a financial service company. Technology and innovation are just marketing slogans. The company is struggling for change but there is not much room for that. Senior management doesn’t truly understand technology and how does it drives consumer behavior.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave a review about your time at Visa. We’re keeping to our focus – having disrupted the payments industry from day one, as the industry’s first to introduce credit, debit and prepaid cards globally and continue to aggressively lead and drive innovation via payment rings, tokenization and biometrics. It’s an exciting time to be here, given all that is being explored around new ways to pay.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Pay is decent. Flexibility, dependent on manager. (Clocking 20 words to submit this review. 17 18 19 20.)

    Cons

    Top heavy. Artificially inflated jobs. Management is interested in anything "strategic", but take little interest in actually doing work as this is beneath them. Leaders who get things done personally are sometimes sidelined as this is seen as low-level tactical work best left to those lower in the hierarchy. A lack of communication which leads to lots of speculation. You'll have very little idea what's going on unless you have good relationships with the "right" people, mainly Aussies and New Zealanders. Many employees have very little trust in what senior management says, and look instead at what they do.

    Pros

    Good pay and compensation packages.

    Cons

    Management focuses on politics culture - room reading and faction taking. There is little room for learning even if you are proactive. While senior management encourages employee to be open and transparent, the message fizzles out in the mid level management.

    Pros

    Good pay, bonus and benefits. Recognized brand. Promotions are super fast if you have good connections. Profit margin is super high.

    Cons

    Organization is surviving only due to Goodwill of existing customers and not because of groundbreaking innovation Senior management encourages open dialog while middle management is dead opposed to it. Any employee caught discussing issues openly will have to face consequences. All management ranks will stick together and ditch that employee.

    Pros

    Drinks in the panty are good: tea, coffee, milo, orange juice, coke, diet coke, etc. etc.

    Cons

    Diversity is a joke, all new hires are Indians based on company newsletter. Senior management changes almost once a month. Too many useless meetings. Management are a bunch of YES men with no skills and no knowledge. Managers spend travel budget like nothing but bring back zero client. Every business travel in Chips team is attached with a personal holiday. Too many slackers. People working here for 5-10 years but doing nothing is very common. No effective employment feedback channel. Employee cannot rate managers. Working environment is getting worse and worse. The good leaders / employees are leaving which are very sad!
