    Pros

    MasterCard has really good benefits and a bonus and profit sharing program that works well. For the most part people are positive, friendly and helpful. The company also focuses quite a bit on professional development of the staff by requiring development courses be a part of each persons performance review process. They also conduct free seminars and invite subject matter experts to speak on common topics of interest such as personal finance. There are opportunities to grow at Mastercard but as with any company you have to make an effort to market your personal brand so that you can be noticed by senior management.

    Cons

    Often there is too much red tape involved in executing good ideas. As a public company the focus is now on the bottom line and less on people.

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are excellent. Additionally the Company promotes education and career development classes. In a down economy, MasterCard's stock is outperforming the market and there are no wage freezes or salary cuts.

    Cons

    Depending upon your individual department's management, the working environment could be hell. Long hours, lack of recogntion, top heavy structure and incompetence at the top. Be prepared to work 14 hour days, at least six days a week, and face time is very important. Meetings take your entire day, so your work must be done after 5PM.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house. Replace with competent people who work smarter, not harder. Push for a work-life balance. Burnt out employees cannot perform properly. Stop hiring consultants that have no ties to the business.
