VISA Inc. Layoffs

Topics regarding layoffs at VISA Inc.

Look somewhere else

Some of the management people at Visa lack leadership, integrity and dedication necessary to properly run a company. I’m sure it’s not like that in all departments however I find it to be very true in mine. We have managers who won’t give credit... —  read more

Wondering how people who were laid off have been treated for their FY2016 bonuses. I would avoid mentioning anything specific on here, but I just checked mine and it is a huge disappointment. Much less than expected, and expectation was in line with... —  read more 

Age inspired layoffs

I've seen many posts on this site referencing the recent layoffs disproportionately effecting older (40+) workers of good caliber. It is against the law in the US for any employer to dismiss employees based upon age. While it can be difficult to... —  read more

Bad decisions

It seems people were cut based on criteria unrelated to their work or the need for their skills. In one particular case, a person was cut who has an exemplary work record (15 years at VISA) and does a job that literally nobody else does. It is the... —  read more 

Decent package, cannot complain

I got laid off last Tuesday (one of a two day process) as part of the big re-org as did over 30% of my team. Overall I hear the rumors that 800-1500 people across the globe were affected. Decent package but the choices of who got laid off were made... —  read more

Last-in, First-out

HR Lays Off It's Own Resources As Well

How it all went down: The Layoff Meeting

What happened to the WARN Act?

I've seen people dismissed on the same day or the day after. What happened to the WARN Act, where if the company is laying off more than 500 people they have to give each employee 60 days notice? I've heard estimates of around 800 employees, so isn't... —  read more 

Are layoffs still going on?

I heard that Tuesday was Cybs, Wednesday was Business, and Thursday was Tech. Rajat sent out the "resource realignment" email on Thursday letting us know that "some" will be leaving Visa, but it is cryptic. And frankly, it doesn't make sense for them... —  read more

These job cuts come right on schedule

Heard 800 this time. The only thing that you can rely on in Visa for the last few years is layoffs. They come like clockwork, only the number of job cuts change. And all we can do is to dodge while the hail of bullets passes. To bad I don't have... —  read more
