    Pros

    Great pay, benefits, culture, and campuses. Obviously one of the best brands in the world. They are very good at what they do. The people were nice, and the direction management wants to take the company is on point.

    Cons

    Like any large company, every department is isolated and silo'd. Communication between departments is slow, and while innovation is promoted, it is very difficult to accomplish. Lots of people, making lots of money, and not willing to change or rock the boat just yet.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to push innovation. Open doors and break down walls between departments. Reorg where necessary.

    Pros

    Great team, wonderful people, good location and plenty of opportunities to learn and grow in multiple directions.

    Cons

    Nothing so far. But if there is a gun to my head, I would say the timings... It gets pretty stressful at times.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing. This is utopia.

    Pros

    Your points-of-view count! MasterCard is collaborative, but not consensus-stuck. Very good work-life flexibility, dynamic CEO, fantastic products

    Cons

    Matrixed environment can be constraining. Not everyone is looking updownleftright yet.

    Advice to Management

    Force the issue of working cross functionally. Do not leave that to HR to solve. This has to be directed and driven at the business level.
