    Pros

    Great corporate environment-
    Great opportunities to work abroad-
    Global work environment- You will work with and deal with people from all over the world.
    The company is huge and there are opportunities to move from one department to another
    Pay is competitive
    People are nice/friendly
    Cafeteria is great
    Gym facilities with classes are nice
    Beautiful building and property
    Great for outdoor running and relaxing @ lunch

    Cons

    Your time there largely depends on how well your department is managed.
    My department had zero work/home life balance. It was serious enough to bust up marriages and cause rapid turnover- Other departments with a work/home life balance were happier and had little to no turnover
    Its hard to move to different departments without it being top secret and you having an in with the area you are trying to move to.
    Everything is far away/long drive so your pretty much stuck on site in terms of lunch plans but you are still on a beautiful sprawling well maintained property. So as long as you can do with out fast food, you should be fine.
    Commute is horrendous

    Advice to Management

    Allow more positions with flexible schedules. Create unorthodox schedules (2nd shift/split shift/telecommute etc)for departments that have high turn over.

    Pros

    MasterCard is a innovative company , I have been with MasterCard for past 10 years and moved around in the company and always found something that interests and same time be intellectually challenging.

    Cons

    it is hierarchical organization which some times becomes challenging

    Advice to Management

    since Mastercard is transitioning to be innovative they need to be more flat structure.
