Pros

MasterCard offers a good place to balance work and home life. If you like to work 9-5 with very little stress, this the company to work for.

Cons

MasterCard likes to clean house every quarter and never announces it in the media. They do not like to re-hire former employees. Access to major highways is a bonus.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Senior Management shoud spend more time intercating with employees. Bring in new managers that have not worked in the old "payments assocation" business model.

    Pros

    MasterCard does pay well in comparison to other companies and there are a great number of bright people.

    Cons

    MasterCard has become way too risk averse. they won't fire people who should be let go, they take forever to make a decision and move forward with initiatives and there are too many cross functional work streams that aren't truly empowered to get anything done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should do a better job of knowing who's who within the company. who is well respected, who is a "go to" on each team etc. Too many people are concerned with managing up only.

    Pros

    Truly global company with many opportunities to work with and in other countries. Good pay for the job.

    Cons

    Executive Management are essentially people who grew up in the old association and therefore have no idea how to be leaders in a "real" company. And no context to know what they don't know

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The unbelievable luck we've had to be in an industry growing 20% for years is just that...luck. Now that this growth is slowing, we need bold change to continue to grow. Be bold in picking new businesses to enter, and getting rid of senior management who can't see this.
