    Middle Management will make or break the future of plans of this company if they don't take good care of their reports

    Project Manager (Current Employee)
    O Fallon, MO

    ProsGreat Benefits, Occasionally interesting projects if you are in the right team especially if project is a business imperative.
    Great Top Leadership especially CEO. He is taking this company places. If only an ounce of some of his awesomeness can trickle down to the mid level management.

    ConsToo much cronyism. Make that extreme cronyism. It's done so openly it stinks.
    Forget about work life balance that they preach on paper but do not put in practice.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop making your friends into people managers when they lack the ability to managers of technical teams or people managers period. People managers are critical to building the people if they can't it cost the company more money but lost trust and lost team moral.

    MasterCard is a great company!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Purchase, NY

    ProsUnder Ajay's leadership MasterCard has become more diverse. There has been a growth in women and ethnicity within the Purchase location. However, I would still like to see more women in Exectives Roles. It also offers a good work-life balance.

    ConsSome managers lack leadership skills.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay attention to the constructive feedback that is given.

    Growing company with new opportunities for career growth.

    Business Leader (Current Employee)
    Purchase, NY

    ProsHiring new employees that bring a new perspective to the company is helping to create a better culture. The company offers challenging work, a good corporate culture and provides a great work environment. There are growing opportunities in new areas of the business.

    ConsFunding can be limited for projects and long work hours and sometimes unrealistic expectations can make it stressful. There are some bad managers you wouldn't want to work for but it seems to be improving very slowly.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHold managers accountable for coaching and supporting their employees

    MasterCard - a glocal company
