What’s it like at Visa, Amex and Master? Is it better or worse than banks? Are you guys all equals? Or is there a hierarchy? Since visa’s in California would think that work and culture is better? Am I right?

- American Express inktomiI've found Amex to be pretty chill. We used to be all contractors in tech but that's changing and most teams are employees now. They treat people well, good work life balance. Options to work remote on some teams.
- Visa vehrkfkThe lack of good strong technical leadership is missing in most team at Visa. Wlb is great and I agree that it's a good retirement place but not ideal for someone looking for some mentoring . If though we have some really good use cases to work on, the lack of strong technical direction hurts the company
- New NcEf26Amex is like 80% H1B, pays really low, avoid at all costs if you aren’t Indian. Though some engineers are making decent money.
- Visa 4001001wlb seems consistently good here but quality of engineering culture may vary between teams, not sure. we use modern technologies on mine but dev practices are sort of disorganized.
