    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Visa Inc. full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Strong benefits packages, including a variety of health options, with a strong 401k. Diversity is more than a buzzword. Company allows people to enjoy a healthy work/life balance, with flexibility in schedules, etc. CEO appears to be genuine and is pushing the organization to avoid resting on their laurels and evolving the business model/opportunities.

    Cons

    Leadership principles are stated, but rarely followed by SVP and higher leaders. Smart goals are stated, but reviews end up being more related to what exec opinion is vs actual performance. Employee survey results for engagement and leadership are used to discipline or punish leaders, rarely is this used to determine the How side of ratings. HR allows Sr Leaders to materially change roles/eliminate positions... without the courtesy of telling the impacted employee what their options are. People are left in limbo/disrespected, which is completely opposed to the direction communicated by the CEO. The desire to solve the diversity challenge has swung to the point where reverse discrimination is happening as it relates to higher pay/equity rewards at annual review time going to diverse employees.

    Advice to Management

    Independent reviews of hr practices and policies should be done before litigation becomes common practice. Listen to your employees and middle managers. The desire to raise the bar should not equate to allowing Sr. Leaders to mistreat staff. Perform exit interviews.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Visa Inc. full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Al Kelly, new CEO, has made a tremendously positive impact during his short tenure. His focus on leadership and collaboration are a massive step forward vs. previous CEO. While "innovation" has always been part of Visa's vision, we are finally able to operate at a more agile + faster pace. Impressive stock growth as well, with no signs of slowing down.

    Cons

    Having worked at multiple global organizations, I am still shocked at how dysfunctional the company operates. Multiple functional teams (Marketing, Product, IT) operate without clearly defined scopes (i.e., high degree of ambiguity and between/across teams, overlapping roles + responsibilities), resulting in chaos. Although collaboration is one of our new leadership principles, there is a much higher than average... amount of political infighting and passive/aggressive behavior. Multiple times, I have seen strong, smart leaders who've attempted to drive alignment within/across organizations get stabbed in the back, which absolutely kills morale. Even the seemingly common practice of distributing org charts to understand who's who + team scope will get no response from HR or organizational execs. While our stock has grown significantly in past 3-4 years, it's a surprisingly lean company -- which forces VPs to manage tactical issues that are a waste of time (and also kills morale).

    Advice to Management

    Invest time in creating/reinforcing team scope clarity, and reward collaboration -- don't just give it lip service.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Visa Inc. full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Someone built it at one point, so that the current inefficient management and people can continue to harvest

    Cons

    That the current inefficient management and people can be rubbish as they are. This place is really in ruins and cheap in spirit and moral.

    Advice to Management

    Get lost shameless guys. You get a new CEO who is nothing better than lip service, really?

    Pros

    CEO Al Kelly sets a clear tone from the top about the importance of true leadership and how to be a great leader. This is influencing the culture of the company. There are great people at Visa and the brand is one of the best in the world. The pay is good and so are the benefits.

    Cons

    It can be hard to get things done due to the way Technology, HR and Finance introduce new tools and processes, and now the CEO and other leaders are trying to address that.

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing what you are doing - all the areas your are focusing on are the the right ones.

    I have been working at Visa Inc. full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Since new Chairman has come on board, there is much more emphasis placed on the importance of people and leadership. It's a refreshing change. The culture feels more vibrant and employees seem happier.

    Cons

    There are still "leaders" in place that need to be called out for who and what they are - bullies to the employees who work for them who are afraid to go to HR because the "leaders" are beyond reproach. There's still red tape. While there's talk of improved compensation, nothing has materialized.

    Advice to Management

    Please look at the very, very top of the organization to figure out who needs to go. Just because someone is bright doesn't mean he can't be nice to others. The vast majority of senior "leaders" don't acknowledge employees in the hallways or on elevators. Can't we hire bright AND nice people, too?
