    Pros

    I really liked working for a Westchester based company. It was an easy commute which allowed for better work life balance

    Cons

    There really weren't any cons. I enjoyed the company, my responsibilities, the culture and the people.

    Advice to Management

    Management should continue to inspire all employees creativity and innovativeness. It's the future of the biz.

    Pros

    great brand, good benefits

    Cons

    Huge gap between salaries within same career level. HR are management extension. you can get promoted without sufficient experience if you got support of high management. Annual salary increment is almost negligible.

    Advice to Management

    Be fair on the salaries paid for the same career level SBL and above should have limited influence on the promotions decision and salaries increments - at least somebody should be there to double check - definitely not the HR!

    Pros

    Vacation, Bonus are very fat. It respects life-work balance. Promotions are fair. Easy to move around within the company

    Cons

    It can be stressful sometimes. The system is overly complicated and there are few people that have the time to teach you

    Advice to Management

    encourage more pair-programming so that new-comers can be up to speed faster.

    Pros

    The CEO is an amazing leader as well as many of the people holding senior management positions. They are incredibly intelligent yet humble. Diversity is absolutely embraced and the right person for the job is hired regardless of gender, culture, age etc. The culture is polite and everyone treats each other with respect. The employees are very sharp and know all aspects of the payments industry. The company embraces innovation and is a leader in emerging payment models.

    Cons

    The company is very top heavy with too many people in middle management who really aren't working. This promotes a country club like atmosphere. There is a huge gap between the senior management team and the people who actually get the work done. It's the business leaders that do all the work without reward or recognition. If you want the easiest job in your life and get paid a lot for doing nothing go for a middle management position at MasterCard.

    Advice to Management

    Get involved. Learn what's really going on. Conduct skip-level reviews. Promote the people who are working hard to bring innovative products to market. Make middle management accountable. Get out of your glass houses and get to know the people who are doing all the hard work. These are the people that will make you successful not the bureaucrats in between.

    Location of HQ is in Purchase, NY, which one could see as the middle of nowhere. Communication between departments could use some work
