    Pros

    Dynamic, interesting work. Solid management team in place and a great outlook for the company

    Cons

    MasterCard could do better hiring straight out of college/grad school. Most employees have significant industry experience that would be complimented by new blood.

    Former Intern - Summer Intern in O'Fallon, MO

    I worked at MasterCard as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    MasterCard really values their interns. I was given a legitimate independent project, the results of which were used even after the internship was over. There are many internship activities throughout the summer, such as sitting in the MasterCard box at a Cardinals game, volunteering at Junior Achievement Finance Park, and various "lunch and learns" with executives. The internship is one of the most professionally designed programs I have seen. MasterCard provides housing and transportation for interns not from the area which is a huge perk. MasterCard uses the internship program as a pipeline for full-time hires. I was even given the opportunity to work remotely during the school year.

    Cons

    Interns in MTO and IPS don't get to interact much at work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great office culture. You can tell innovation is a priority.

    Pros

    MasterCard is going through incredible change and that makes it a very exciting place to work. Innovation and thinking outside of the box is highly encouraged so all employees can make a difference and contribute to the MasterCard difference.

    Cons

    As with all change there is some resistance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue building a creative and fun culture while retaining the highly valued culture of caring about our employees and customers

    I worked at MasterCard full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    MasterCard has strong focus on employees and provides excellent opportunities for future growth. MasterCard's continued success in the card payment business will ensure a rewarding environment for new employees.

    Cons

    Many career development opportunities tends to be centered around corporate headquarters as you reach more senior roles. However, MasterCard truly isn't that much different than most major corporations with a centralized headquarters.

    Pros

    great benefits and opportunities to intereact across business units. Always comfortable environment.

    Cons

    sometimes it seems that important information intended for all employees doesn't make its way down the line. There is a barrier with middle management - the top is visible and engaged but info stops in the middle.

    I have been working at MasterCard full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    MasterCard has a lot of employees who know a great deal about the payment industry. The company is also investing a lot in the training of its staff. It's a great place to learn a lot.

    The company also has a great culture and most of its employees try to have a good work-life balance.

    Cons

    The location is not great. The company could have a more flexible work from home policy. There are a lot of meetings and a limited sense of accountability at times. It's sometimes challenging to act swiftly.

    Pros

    Corporate culture, flexibility, work load, good perks, nice pay. Overall a very good and respected company. They have a wonderful cafeteria in Missouri.

    Cons

    The communication structure could have been a bit better. The work did become a bit repetitive over time. Nothing that is intolerable for a larger company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication.
