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

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 ManagementAdvice

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 ManagementAdvice

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