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?

    I'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.

    The 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

      This is a problem across a lot of financial corporations. Lots of old school leadership trying to adapt to tech and doing a poor job at it. Overall it really depends on the organization you end up in.

    If you’re late in your career I think it could be good, stable job good benefits good WLB. Starting up at these companies maybe not as good not too much to learn, not too tech savvy like to have contractors do most work which is weird.

    Amex is like 80% H1B, pays really low, avoid at all costs if you aren’t Indian. Though some engineers are making decent money.

      You are wrong. As a non-indian I can tell you that Indians hold.all the cards. Most directors and vps are Indians and they only help their people grow.

      They are not doing any more H1B for your information

    wlb 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.

      I agree re culture and the quality of teams being different throughout the org. Amex is working on this.

    Good wlb, bonuses aren't bad, 6 month leave for a child ( co worker got 9).

    Tech stacks are terrible though.

    WLB at Visa is great, if you DON'T want to grow and DON'T care about your work.

    Amex is pretty good. Really enjoyed my time there. I think they pay slightly under market but the wlb and benefits are pretty strong IMO. how come discover didn’t make the list? Had a friend who made the switch from American Express to Discover and never looked back.

    So no one from Mastercard?
    I believe it is the best of the lot considering their amazing CEO, what a leader!
