    I worked at Visa Inc. full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great perks like Transport facility, good training options, Gym, XBox, Massage chair etc. Nice Salary (most teams) Some teams do have interesting projects but rest (most) of the teams do not have engaging work. Work pressure can vary a lot from team to team. There are teams where people play Foosball everyday and bunk weekend shifts while there are teams who slog the entire day and don't get proper sleep. Some fun...

    Cons

    You will be over-skilled for your job because of their hiring policy. There are a lot of places where people do repetitive manual work day-in day-out. Little focus on automating this. The above fact has lead to a lot of complex processes (unnecessarily complex). Even for small things, like adding something to browser, you need to raise a security exception and the security team is clueless on what to do next and will...

    Advice to Management

    Simplify processes. Achieve a better work-life balance. Don't brainwash employees to "give all you have to work", they have lives too. Throwing more perks won't help if the employees don't have time to use them.

    Cons

    1# Average quality of work. Very few teams have decent work. 2# Work life balance is very bad throughout the organization. you have to work with USA teams every midnight , some times it goes till early morning. This is the expectation from Bangalore management. 3# Most of the Directors are only by the designation and do not have any leadership or technical skills. Most of them lacks basic management skills...

    Advice to Management

    1# Take your annual survey seriously and find out the incompetent leaders and let them go. Build a high performing engineering as well as high performing leadership team. 2#Like you have PIP process for the engineers , similarly start a PIP for the leaders as well. 3# Empower the HRs to take part in the promotions and not just follow the orders from the individual TLT. 4# Definitely create a high performing environment...

    Cons

    Need more clear policy on Go Share, Promotions and Internal Mobility. Need Career Guidance Sessions Enable Managers for better people management and guidance Less Closed Sessions with Management

    Advice to Management

    Visa India being a new center and fresh talent there is too much expectation of employee. Visa might not meet everything and might not be able to solve all issues, but regular touch ups with leaders in closed groups really helps. All hands are hardly of use for getting feedbacks.
