Fast-paced, exciting work, not for 'faint of heart'

I have been working at MasterCard

Pros

Exciting work, fast paced, nice work atmosphere, enjoy working with co-workers.

Cons

Some "old-time" MC management styles still exist.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Continue to weed out "old-time" management style.
- While the company is doing great with Brand differentiation, perhaps you might consider using Technology (what we do very well) as a source of differentiation.

    Great experience but the "Team" element has faded over the years

    Pros

    The CEO, Ajay Banga, is taking the company in to the 21st century with the development of emerging markets and technology.

    Cons

    The internal politics of process and turf battles can cloud the perception and perceived efficiencies that do not take in to consideration the subject matter expertise of individuals that could better validate decision making.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to focus on the merchant and create payment efficiencies that are not only added value but well supported after initial rollout.

    Political Place with Pretentious People

    I worked at MasterCard

    Pros

    Some smart and intelligent people in products and solutions hired in the recent year. Talent attracts talent. I don't usually like HR but have positive experiences with a very professional HR partner - respectful, solutions-oriented, smart and clearly an endangered specimen.

    Cons

    Political and full of unthinkable nonsense e.g. senior managers who watch what time you come in and make a fuss to others, not to you directly. Legal Department run by prescriptive and dogmatic stiffs who take joy in misfortunes and mistakes of employees. A pretty judgmental culture. Managers who do not develop their teams caring only for their own skins.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lead by example. Talk is cheap and boring. Recognize those who truly make a difference and make it hard for those who simply make noises to shield their own incapabilities. Be mindful of what talented people want and need at work.
