MasterCard IPS: a great team and an industry leader.

Business Leader (Current Employee)
Purchase, NY

I have been working at MasterCard full-time for more than 5 years

ProsMasterCard has evolved quite a bit since its IPO in 2006. Bottom line, it's a fantastic place to work, with exceptional opportunities and more than its share of thought leadership. It may sound corny, but I'm proud to tell people I work at MasterCard. I've been on the MasterCard IPS team for several years now, and it's great to work with a supurb group of dedicated people and extraordinary management team.

ConsI'm finding it difficult to come up with a 'con' for MasterCard or MasterCard IPS. MasterCard IPS is an ideal team -- best I've ever worked with.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work! Your efforts are obviously on target.

Outstanding place to work!

Human Resources (Current Employee)
Saint Louis, MO

I have been working at MasterCard full-time for more than 3 years

ProsSome of the smartest people I have ever had the privilege of working with and for work at MasterCard. I have learned so much in my tenure with the organization. Another area the company is great is is international opportunities; both short and long-term.

ConsThere are some areas where advancement can be limited; the off-set is that you can always change areas and try something new!

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the great work!

I have an exciting and challenging job on a daily basis.

Project Manager (Current Employee)

ProsThe work environment is great. The work is challenging and enjoyable.

ConsNot everyone outside of MasterCard / Visa understands how the credit card industry works. AMEX and Discover is similar but different business model within the credit card industry.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the growth of the various payment products across the world. Keep educating the public and governments on the credit card and payment card products and business model.

Feels like home

Intern (Former Employee)
Purchase, NY

I worked at MasterCard

ProsMasterCard was a great place to intern. We had a small intern group spread across many different areas of the company, but our departments and HR made sure we felt welcome and integrated into the organization. They have really thought through their internship program and had weekly educational sessions focusing on resume writing, knowledge about the bank, personal strengths, etc. We even visited the floor of the NYSE! The hours were great, the work was not overwhelming and was appropriate for my level of work experience at the time, and my coworkers were infinately helpful. Overall, the atmosphere and people were just perfect for me.

ConsIt was a sophmore internship, so it is not like other financial internships where you can expect a fulltime offer after the internship. Really, other than that, I can't think of one negative thing.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep on doing what you're doing, it seems to be working!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
