Salaried employees are treated well, while hourly employees are just numbers.
Cons: politicking, mistreatment of employees, underpaid after being hired on, extremely hard to deal with management
Visa is a very good company to work for IF you are in management. If you're unfortunate enough to be hourly, then you are just another replaceable number who can and will be let go for no warning or reason.
The hardware and software you are expected to utilize is always broken and completely outdated. Which makes the daily overload of responsibilities impossible and punishment is fast and severe for falling behind.
The environment is very hostile towards hourly employees as they talk about cutting the bottom line expenses to maximize profits, but the only people who seem affected, are the employees at the bottom of the food chain who actually do the work. Which is why the bonus structure and raise structure of management is closely guarded from hourly employees so they can't see just how badly they are being under appreciated and underpaid by comparison.
The politicking that goes on at Visa is outrageous and blatant.
They will reel you in with a decent enough starting pay as a CSR1, but then the raise structure after that is absurd.
If you have the guts to approach HR about the immoral practices and favoritism, you'll find a final written warning with your name on it waiting for you, as Management looks after their own.
If you enjoy being another completely replaceable number in an environment where people are commodities to be discarded for no reason, this is the place for you.
Unless you can get on in a salary position, this is a horrific place to be employed.
In talking to most other hourly employees, this is how they feel also, they are just too scared to say anything about it as reprisals are fast, severe, and final.
