Former Employee - Product Analyst in O'Fallon, MO

I worked at MasterCard full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Nice people, solidarity among employees. Young workforce.
They pay fairly well (but you won't have time to spend it).

Cons

People with seniority tend to be let go because they are expensive/expendable. In the real world, this cost-saving technique is call age discrimination.
Management is completely clueless about what their direct reports are doing -- reviews are managed like high school popularity contests.
Everyone under middle management is expected to work "more than 40 hours" per week. This is glossed over in the interview, but it really means at least 60 hour per week and 24/7 availability.
Mandatory United Way donations; "strong encouragement" to bank at First National Bank of St. Louis (a silent partner of MC).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Poor management, can't decide which management style to adopt so they change every few months. MC management will not read these reviews because they really don't care!
