Pros

Great people.
Focus and investment in innovation and merging payments.
Great brand and the opportunity to be the center of a broad industry working with startups, merchants, and banks.

Cons

Big company culture and politics - but Ajay Banga the current CEO is pushing hard to change this
Average age skews older, but again, there is a big drive to balance that

    Pros

    Decent Pay
    Close to Home
    Gave me a start in IT

    Cons

    Management didn't know about Job duties.
    Work Environment was Dark and old.
    I call it the place where IT workers go to die
    Very old workplace and median age is quite a bit older.

    Advice to Management

    Update you work environment
    Need a training program. Not Tribal knowledge only.

    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 Management

    -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.
