Current Employee - Senior Consultant in Saint Louis, MO
Current Employee - Senior Consultant in Saint Louis, MO

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

Pros

Good benefits, good pay, good global exposure but still very beaurocratic and "meeting heavy".

Cons

very consensus driven, not driven to take risks, HR no help. hope you get a good boss!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Encourage turnover / new experiences to improve the energy levels; look at the leadership and see if they fit the mould for tomorrow or just a reflection of the past; take some risks to refresh the talent to show you are changing the old banking culture.

    Current Employee - Business Leader in Saint Louis, MO

    I have been working at MasterCard full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The life-work balance is wonderful. Everyone pulls together to make things happen and we all take personal pride in quality work. Quality work is usually compenstated for in multiple ways. Truly a global company.

    Cons

    Upper level management changes too frequently, causing confusion and lack of consistency. Probably like most companies there are some bad seeds in the group that talk out of both sides of their mouth, play favorites and are in it for themselves. NY employees are not flexible in the culturaly differences. Too many opinions and performance reviews based on hear say.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider spending a little more money on simple technology enhancements that support day to day operations, in the long run employees will be more effecient (saving money) and customers will be happier.

    Employees still feel that they have no place to go in fear of retaliation. HR recently sat on a phone call un-announced for an hour; very sneaky. I have no trust in the process or the department.

    Consider implementing a process for escalating business decisions that are "stuck in the mud" with their existing management.

    I have been working at MasterCard full-time

    Pros

    I like the fact that the company is addressing key competitive factors and working hard to overcome the legacy and mentality of an association. The consumer-centered focus is also important in order to clearly differentiate our product benefits/innovation/value proposition

    Cons

    -Managers lack the skills and leadership to motivate people; yet are rewarded in a vacuum

    -New managers who have been hired with "badge" value are ineffective when it comes down to translating their experience to MC business

    -Not a ton of opportunity to get promoted due to heavy matrix

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
