The legal department at Visa was treated as the enemy of business. Every single business contract that is executed by Visa, of which there are thousands per month for any geographical region, must be prepared, reviewed and approved by the legal department. The business teams are frequently incapable of describing the business terms of their own transactions and rely on the legal department to draft them. There simply is not enough time manage this volume of work, which leads to extraordinary friction and disappointment between the business and legal teams.
Completely Disfuctional Relationship between Legal and Business

The people who work for visa are awesome and they support you to be able to do your job to the best of your ability but the job expectations and the card holders that you have to deal with are sickening and stressful.

My experience with VISA was the most memorable educational experience for me. I am one that enjoys challenge and wanting to always keep on learning.The workplace culture was universal. The most enjoyable part of the job is learning and working on marketing projects.

Great pay and benefits. Great coworkers however the leadership needs to be changed out. No trust and constant threatening. Trust you employees and you will have a much better company. Throw out the old timers who think they have a right there.
The pay and benefits are great but everything else is questionable
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Miami, FL – September 21, 2018
When i started, it was a great company to work for. There was always something interesting going on at work. Cupcakes, popcorns, pretzel day, some random games via email etc. we were excited to come to work. Not too long ago before leaving, it became such a stressfull environment. We were being micromanaged, they were setting unrealistic goals. As a customer service agent, they expected us to be like robot. Take calls, go on break and go home. No side conversation with your coworkers, can’t standup on the floor while working, just stare at your computer for the full shift. It was hard to even get a day off

Visa awarded me a great place to work with a good atmosphere and the ability to grow. Visa employs the "best of the best" and you find out very quickly why they are such a successful company. Great people surround themselves around great people.
Days were very relaxed with progressive goals in mind. Work never felt overwhelming and co-workers were always willing to help. Management was never overbearing so long as expectations were met. Various benefits such as a week long paid vacation to San Francisco made it a wonderful place to work.
