    I worked at Visa in Europe full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    - they are refurbishing the building and you will have coffee for free and, possibly, a ping pong

    Cons

    - incompetent and scared management
    - job posting published the day before people is fired
    - people is so scared to loose their job that no new ideas are coming from them
    - struggling behind competition
    -no new successful products since years
    - Abusive managers and HR
    -if you'll fire a complaint you'll probably get fired
    - you may be fired even if you are doing a good job

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so scared. What you talk about Agile and Lean organizations you only look even more scared. Job insecurity is not a management tool, is a sadistic way to harm and scare people.
