Pros

The company pays better than market to their employees. The time off policy is very generous. The O
Fallon building has many perks for the employee.

Cons

The culture and the actual environment are totally different. MasterCard HR tries to promote work/life balance. Putting the employees first. The actuality is long hours, overworked staff, and a hostile work environment. Management is worried about covering themselves and showing up others so they look good with no regard to the result of the dept. or other employees trying to do their best.

Advice to Management

Review the business leader and above in the GBSC transaction services and replace with competent leadership.

    Pros

    Before they went public they were a very good company - they cared about the employees and their core systems to support the business.

    People were very hard working. Pay and benefits were great.

    Cons

    Employees who remain technical over 50 years old are generally treated poorly and have few opportunities for continued professional development.. One manger told me "if they were smart they'd get into management so they get what they deserve".

    Advice to Management

    Change your focus back to creating and maintaining high quality software systems. Fairly treat employees, particularly the long term employees that still have technical expertise in the systems.

    Pros

    What you learn is only limited by your drive to learn. Flexible schedules are a perk. Benefits are competitive. Strong technology focus on the core network enables value added products to be developed.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy in middle management inhibits productivity. Need to create better alignment to vision communicated by executive leadership. Software Development culture not quite state of the art - no vision in procuring the right tools to do the job.

    Advice to Management

    Hire better talent and create an environment where they succeed. Stop the cover your ass culture.
