Enjoy working here, but it is extremely fast paced ALL the time.

Business Leader (Current Employee)
O'Fallon, MO

I have been working at MasterCard full-time for more than 8 years

Prosflexible with work/life balance and ability to work remote, benefits are good and there are lots of healthy incentives. Gym onsite is another bonus if you can find the time to visit.

ConsThe new open floor plan may work for some, but not all. Every day is busy season, there is no break in the madness.

Entrepreneurial environment

Director, Consulting (Former Employee)
Miami, FL

I worked at MasterCard full-time for less than a year

ProsVery creative environment. They are willing to allow experimentation, which is very satisfying. You have to be able to thrive on chaos since there is a lot going on. I do, so I loved it.

ConsSome resources don't contribute much and thus their focus tends to be on tangential matters, which creates a frustrating environment at times.

Advice to Senior ManagementConsider weeding out the low performers. Their equal "participation" during decision making could be discouraging.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
