    MasterCard recent outsourcing to India is impacting American jobs that hurts the U.S. economy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in people with a strong electronic payment industry background

    I worked at MasterCard

    Pros

    I thought the pay and opportunity for promotion was good.

    Cons

    It was a very political environment and how well you did depended on how well liked your manager was among his peers and upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Embrace different management styles and not just give lip service to diversity.

    I worked at MasterCard full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits/pay are really good and work/life balance is pretty good as well. As far as big companies go, it offers all the standard things.

    Cons

    They promised a lot when I interviewed in terms of training, projects, international travel, and generally made it sound like an exciting place to be. That wasn't really the case. The training was slapped together last minute and I got stuck doing mundane projects for the whole year and a half that I worked there. Even when I asked for more challenging work, I was mostly ignored. Beyond that, my boss probably couldn't even tell you where my desk was and I maybe saw him once a month - not ideal in my opinion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more involved with your lower levels and listen to changes they suggest.

    Pros

    Good work life balance, everyone is encouraged to meet and network within the firm.

    Cons

    The culture is relatively lax. Smart and efficient employees are not properly rewarded while others aren't as good are not criticized either.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some better people and raise compensation, especially since the company is in Purchase and not NYC.

    Growing Company, Changing Culture

    Pros

    Company continues to grow, C-suite executives are relatively accessible and they encourage employees to rotate across different business areas, which offers the opportunity to take your career in different directions.

    Cons

    The company is trying to change its culture to align itself more with other technology companies but the process is going through growing pains. Inconsistent titles relative to experience across various groups and work-life balance can vary greatly across groups.
