Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Saint Louis, MO
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Saint Louis, MO

I have been working at MasterCard

Pros

Fair salary
Well known company and brand
Profitable company, but at a cost

Cons

Heavy outsourcing
Prefer mediocrity at cheaper cost
Decline in benefits since going public on the stock market
Very conservative with innovation
For a small company, the bureaucracy of a very large company

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Lose the over-accounting that prevents innovation due to unrealistic goals that force tracking to estimates instead of tracking to realistic numbers.

Still very much a buddy system in management, tough job market plus fewer opportunities in the St. Louis, MO market tend to breed favoritism

    Good company but odd culture

    Pros

    The Salary, Bonus, Matching Money and Benefits are good and if you're in the right department the work can be interesting

    Cons

    It is a fear based culture, driven by a ubiquitous old boys network. The culture does not promote accountability or in some cases even plain logic. It isn't a huge company and yet it is a bit like working for a government agency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your long time culture based on the Associtaion will kill your future if you can't figure a way to change it into being based on the natures of Business
