I have been working at MasterCard full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

-CEO brings in a new and energizing perspective
-CEO also pushes for diversity, change, and innovation
-Company is going through a culture change inviting new ideas, perspectives, innovations, millennial employees
-Educational assistance for undergrad and grad school is great
-Stock prices continue to prosper in reflection of the embraced changes (cultural, technological, innovations)

Cons

-Many old school employees (those before IPO) are resistant to change
-Many prefer the status quo
-Bureaucracy is a problem causing delays in time to market initiatives and embracing new process improvement ideas
-Politics at times play major deterrents impacting project and human resource advancements
-Employees feel overbooked with tasks and this is considered 'the MasterCard way' . This causes burnouts and employees seek other positions

Advice to ManagementAdvice

-Be cognizant of your teammates and don't treat them as only a 'human resources'
-Really help employees grow in their career, so don't hold them back
-When employees are overbooked with tasks and can't always meet the outpacing demands, don't say 'it's a time management issue'
-Give hard working internal employees opportunities to grow and not just fill positions with external people.
