Latest technology but not much advancement ops

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Worked in a support role for 5+ years, and enjoyed being part of such a well-known company. Wasn't encouraged to advance career-wise, and not seriously considered for roles above what I was doing. I got the sense that they didn't want to lose people in the department rather than promote.

Pros

Benefits, latest technology

Cons

Pay, lack of advancement, trainging

Dinosaur culture but good benefits and not too stressful

Come here if you want to coast, not great for learning and the company in general tends to be a bit dysfunctional due to the organizational structure.

Good company to work

A secure job with a good work-life balance. Good if you have kids who need a life with decent pay. Management is good, caring, and supportive. Work can challenging but depends on the group you work for.

Internal promotions are a joke

On the surface Visa makes a big deal about moving within the company, but in reality the only people that move up in ranks are those who have close ties to leadership. I had seen people getting promoted to management positions that had absolutely 0 relatable experience, and what is worst is that they emulated the micromanaging techniques of their leader that got them in that position.

Pros

Lower benefit costs to employees, 401k immediate vesting

Cons

Micromanaging

All fun, except it isn't

Visa culture is at odds with itself, trying to accomplish goals that undermine its own policies. It's a fractured company stuck between what they were that made them great, and what they want to be in the emerging leviathan that is global finance.

Pros

Ping Pong

Cons

You spend every day making the world a darker place.

Benefits are Good

The benefits are good at Visa, but it is very hard to advance if you don't work in the right location. There is a lot of turnover. So, if you want a career, I would look elsewhere.

Pros

Healthcare

Cons

Few Opportunities

Golden Chains

I worked 60 and 70 hour weeks in a high paced and high pressure work environment. Working with sums of money and transaction volumes that monumentally large is inherently stressful. There is no room for mistakes. They are one of the few companies that I have worked for that take data security very seriously, and rightly so. I've seen them terminate someone for not following the rules to secure his laptop. The benefits were so good that you wouldn't want to leave. At least that was how it was some years ago. Do you want to be a big fish in a little pond? Or grow to be a huge fish in the ocean?

Pros

High bar, fast paced, great pay, great bennifits.

Cons

You are never off the clock.

Chill job is you're aiming for retirement

Good wlb but not good pay, dinosaur tech, too many red tapes, slow process, average coworkers. But has 200% 401k matching which is unheard of in the industry so if you just wanna coast along and rest and vest its the place for you

Pros

Wlb

Cons

Pay

High expectations- horrible experience

Bar none the worst company I've worked for. You're a number that can be let go anytime. Understaffed, lack of communication, training wasn't sufficient, heavy on management.

Pros

Free meals occasionally. Free drinks

Cons

Micromanagement on steroids, culture was awful

Very siloed and difficult to get things done there

VISA is all about transaction processing. If you work in that area it is very innovative. I worked in a different part of the organization and was often stymied by both the legal culture (the joke is: At Legal we put the NO in innovation) and a senior culture that would be hard to get the attention of.

Pros

Good work life balance. Pays good and stock has been lucrative

Cons

Very siloed. Difficult to get anything innovative through the system

Ok job, does not care about employees

Ok place to work. You are very expendable but benefits are good. It can be very stressful at times and management is of little help. The upside is the office is very nice and the company has many nice people.

Pros

Benefits

Cons

Stressful, too demanding, you are expendable

innovation, culture, benefits.

I was in a role that was poorly defined and managed. My on boarding was only 3 days rather than 2 weeks, and I was not properly introduced to any of the stakeholders I would be working and collaborating with. Not a culture of transparency, rather a lot of sweeping the elephant in the room under the rug. Very little leadership accountability

Drives you to do better

The team is collaborative and fun to be with. It feels like a 2nd family as they understand your strengths and weaknesses. Also, honest feedback is provided at every stage. And that has been a strong foundation in my growth.
