Does Visa Inc. offer dental insurance?

Pros

Great benefits including medical, dental, vision, life insurance, PTO, bonuses, etc. Good people, there are lots of smart and determined employees who will help you navigate your company and your job. In my experience most people want you to succeed and they will help you. Its not an "every man for himself" environment.

Cons

You might get stuck on a team that is working with very outdated technology. Visa is not a very flexible company in that they are not very willing to step into current technology and try the latest and greatest. Which is understandable, but be aware that you probably wont be doing anything cutting edge at visa unless you work in R&D.

Advice to Management

I worked under a senior director who cared more about years of experience than proven work history and performance. Guidelines in terms of career advancement can be helpful, but if they are hard and fast rules people who are capable of developing skills faster will lose their motivation to keep trying if they know they can't get a promotion for x number of years, or until x number of years in their position have passed regardless of performance.

Does Visa Inc. have a pension plan?

Pros

- Relaxed working environment - You can buy VISA shares for 15% off - Great pension benefits - Average benefit package compared to the rest of the industry - Interesting work

Cons

- Most things revolve around politics. You can thrive if you can navigate around politics and appear competent. - Security is reasonable in a finance company, but at VISA it often gets in the way of you getting any work done, or doing work properly - There's a shortage of technical knowledge and the company seems unaware of this. On the other hand there's abundance of business knowledge. That's because average tenure is high. Employers in roles such as support/manual testing tend to fall out of date with basic computer science knowledge. - Cooperation with other teams globally is tricky. There's a problem with knowledge sharing. There's an us-vs-them mindset with respect to other teams globally - Projects sometimes start with requirements loosely specified. Other times requirements change after delivery and whole components are scraped. - There's micromanagement, as managers don't have enough power to help you thrive within your career, and often make up excuses instead of being transparent. But every manager has its style and reacts differently to the environment

Great pension benefits

Does Visa Inc. offer parental leave?

Pros

Visa is an amazing place to be a working parent. They provide generous maternity leave (4 months), tons of PTO, flex Fridays and a really positive culture. The colleagues are kind and caring and balanced. While compared to other Bay Area companies, the perks aren't as generous, the good work life balance makes up for it. There's also some really smart people and a fantastic mission!

Cons

There needs to be more corporate jobs outside of the Bay Area, which has sadly become unaffordable for so many families. The tools and processes at Visa are slow

Advice to Management

Consider putting more corporate jobs outside of the Bay Area and in lower cost cities like Austin, Denver, or giving more your employees opportunities to work remotely if you are truly a global company.

What is health insurance like at Visa Inc.?

Pros

As a new grad, I was hesitant to choose Visa. Company reviews were mixed, and it's not the most sexy company. However, I'm glad I did. There are some very smart folks around the Bay area offices that take in interest in supporting you as a new grad. Many company resources available as well. Upper management receptive to ideas and change. Phenomenal benefits (401k matching, good health insurance, etc.) on par (or better) with top companies (but does not include perks). Visa has an average tenure that is years longer (like 4X) than the Bay Area average which is a testament to opportunities here and employee willingness to stick around.

Cons

Experiences vary wildly by location and team Though benefits are great here, perks are in no way comparable with other companies in the Bay. Not good Too much focus on security
