I worked at MasterCard

Pros

One of the reasons I enjoyed working for MasterCard was the camaraderie between my colleagues and the way the departments were able to interact with each other. I also felt comfortable with knowing that if I needed to talk to Management about something, that the door was always open. I liked that they had plenty of resources available to increase your knowledge base, and they encouraged self improvement as well as career development. Management was quite flexible with time off and I saw in most cases they were willing to work with you if you needed something, be it advice, assistance, whatever.

Cons

The only real downside about working at MasterCard was that there seemed to be frequent reorganizations. It makes for tense management, in my opinion. Some other downsides were the political aspect of working in certain departments, but you will find that in any office. As with any and everything else, it all starts with the people.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Find a plan and stick to it.

    Pros

    Great work/life balance. Great commute for anyone living in Westchester.

    Cons

    Old management needs to change. Still hanging on to old "country club" culture that will no longer work in today's marketplace.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to leverage in-house company talent better. Understand who has what experience and don't simply look at current position. Lots of MC employees have varied and applicable experience which is not being tapped.

    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
