    I have been working at Visa Inc. full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have been with Visa for more than 3.5 years and each day has been a new challenge. Company celebrated 60 years since inception recently, thus systems are mature and processes are well defined.

    Here are few things I like the most:
        - Very flexible and friendly employee environment.
        - Subsidized Cafeteria food, unlimited free juices, fruits, beverages in breakout area, evening snacks
        - Free commute for employees in AC top end vehicles (Innova Crysta) : can you imagine a better way to beat our Bangalore traffic in most comfortable way? Late evening cabs too as business demands and flexible shift selection for daily commute.
        - Company that has always seen an uptick in its share price there by benefiting share holders as well as employees through stock purchase plan
        - Very good health insurance coverage for family and discounted premium for extended family members as per needs of employee. Best in class accidental coverage for employee.
        - Ample opportunities to learn through various in-house online courses having access to vast content possible through Visa University. Also, so many instructor led trainings as employee finds it useful for their individual development. Plus higher education assistance up to 3 lakhs per annum (tax free for employee, borne by employer).
        - Compensation is a fair deal in my view. Good performers are always taken care of. Those complaining about it here on this platform should do a soul search as to why they joined in the first place if compensation was not compelling enough compared to their previous pay scale.
        - To relax the body physically, multiple recliners are available too!
        - Business class international air travel for all employees irrespective of the designation.

    Cons

    - There are ample opportunities to change the way we do things in ever changing payments space. Easiest way is to blame others for what is broken and point out failures, but think about the opportunity it provides for you to grab and show rest how things can be done differently!

        - Sometime the processes may appear to be an overkill but remember being a mammoth finance tech company, it is very important to safeguard every bit of data and hence established process continues whether you like it or not. How would you feel if your financial data is compromised? It also provides a great opportunity to challenge if it doesn't make sense and be the change agent!

        - I do agree that things may not be as perfect as you want it to be. There are two options again, crib about it/gossip around/blame it and spread negative thoughts around OR take lead to fix things by bringing up with right folks. There is always an opportunity to voice out concerns at skip level or a level above it as situation demands.

    Advice to Management

    Employee survey is a way to feel the pulse of how things are going on at large and how things can be looked into differently to make it a much more vibrant place. Don't take it to the extremes on both employee and management.
