Misguided chaos held together by heroes
Consultant (Former Employee) –  Reading, Berkshire25 April 2018
The technology is good, most of the people are good but top level management really need to listen. They think they're doing a lot better than they actually are. Generally its an unstable environment which given the nature of their business is a big story waiting to happen. They have the potential to be so so much better.
Pros
Decent people, good facilities
Cons
Deaf ears for implementing change safely

The company was in a state of flux when I worked there, with an upcoming takeover on the horizon, hence it is very difficult to give it a fair and through review.

Delivery Director (Former Employee) –  London27 March 2018
Some real dorks masquerading as directors. Mostly incredible managers and staff. Very professional firm at the cutting edge of what is possible and delivering in a consistent way. Resource Solutions is rubbish. Try and avoid them if you can, very nepotistic.

Best of the best

Let down by poor leadership

Good employer, but I outgrew them and the restructure made my position untenable. Knowledge gained is highly specialist making you a great future candidate for some roles but not for many.

Operating Regulations Senior Author (Former Employee) –  London26 February 2017
It was nice working there because it was my first job in London. It was a bit too corporate and stiff at times. The hardest part was feeling tied to a desk and my role wasn't very inspiring. The best part was the friends I made.
Pros
My team
Cons
Boring job

Great organisation to work for when Visa Europe. Now going through a merger with Visa Inc.
IT Employee (Current Employee) –  Reading12 October 2016
Whilst being owned by the member banks Visa Europe felt like a small organisation punching way above it's weight. It provides a world-class payments platform with relatively small number of employees. Like any organisation there are areas for improvement, but likely to be very different environment after the merger with Visa Inc.
Pros
Brand, changes going on in the payments industry
Cons
Speed of change

Environnement de travail agréable
Chef de Projet de Lancement (Current Employee) –  London, ENG29 July 2015
Collègues et collaborateurs agréable, très bonne ambiance de travail. Les managers participent également au développement personnel. Trop d'administratif cependant à coté de notre travail. Certaines équipes sont toutefois trop dépendanteS du management au très haut niveau. Privilèges qui faisaient la différence ont été enlevés.
Pros
Bonne ambiance entre collègues

Difficile de se faire entendre.
