Great concept - questionable management
Contractor (Former Employee) –  American Fork, UTFebruary 1, 2016
initially I enjoyed this workplace but came to find that there is alot of favoritism and management picks and chooses their favorite people. Performance is not as important as your social skills to favor someone from management.

I find it shocking that a company of this stature condones this behavior.
Pros
free stuff, healthcare
Cons
lack of training, training by wrong individuals giving you incorrect info

Unorganized Company
Sr. Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Miami, FLJanuary 22, 2016
Working for Visa is horrible, a company of this magnitude should be well organized. There is no diversity at all, majority of management are of Hispanic decent. Management don't know anything about the policy and procedures of the company. The management are back stabbing and will lie on you to make themselves look good. Of the whole company here are about 5 African American managers working for Visa.
Pros
Compensation.
Cons
Short break, No job security

Good place to continue learning
Sr. Software Engineer (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXJanuary 20, 2016
After being in the wild west of consulting for 3 years, it was really good to have to have gotten the chance to come to work as a full-time employee once again. Visa Inc. really values education and my current manager is always valuing input and proactive attitudes. I have been with the company long enough to have some reservations with the way that upper management is leading the company. Many of the upper IS managers that were working with Visa 3 years have retired and/or left to other companies. Read that as you will.

Also, the company culture at Visa is not ready for Agile projects. They are still tied to the Waterfall model.
Pros
Great work environment, ping-pong tables, hackathons, technology company
Cons
rotating door for IS management, poor attitude of tenured colleagues

Challenging and Competitive
Global Business Continuity, Crisis Management (Former Employee) –  Foster City, CADecember 3, 2015
Compensation and benefits were very good at Visa when I was there. However, there is a trade off with work/life balance. Management varies throughout departments and organizations; they could use improvement on hiring/training managers with good supervisory skills as this is lack in many departments. Job advancement is difficult. Once you land in a job, it's very difficult to move up or into a different department.

That being said, there are so many great people who work at Visa whose personalities shine through no matter what.

Expand your horizons
Systems Analyst (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXNovember 6, 2015
Impossible to get things accomplished at Visa because of old and inflexible processes.

Technology group is comprised almost entirely of middle age, Asian, men.

Management not fit for managerial tasks. Taking great developers and placing them in managerial roles is not the right move. Let developers do what they do best and put leaders in leadership roles.
Pros
Nice people
Cons
Bend to California time/schedule, Downgrading benefits, IT group not diverse

Great but not so great
Undisclosed (Current Employee) –  Foster City, CAOctober 21, 2015
Constant unproductive change is the name of the game. Innovation does not exist here. Too much stuff happens behind the scenes. I don't know how any one can feel a piece of mind in a place where they are not valued or heard.
Pros
Flexible
Cons
Uncertainty

IT Program Manager Contractor, IT Commercial PMO (Former Employee) –  Foster City, CAOctober 21, 2015
Successful managers empower their employees, capitalize on their strengths, provide consistent message of what success looks like, and address areas where employees can improve. Visa is a most fascinating and complex environment to work in, their technology is very advanced, their project management maturity level is very high, they have a large number of smart contributors. Where Visa falls short is employee burnout is extremely high, managers often raise their voice during staff meetings, respect of individuals is not part of the culture.
Pros
Extremely complex and interesting technology, lots of opportunity to learn new things.
Cons
Very disrespectful culture, high employee turnover
