    I have been working at MasterCard full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I've been at MasterCard for less than a year and it's by far the best place I've ever worked. The people who work here are passionate, intelligent and driven. The benefits are fabulous and the company really takes care of its employees.

    Cons

    It's hard to grasp all facets of the business.

    Pros

    Great CEO, Amazing Vision, Generous Compensation, Never heard off Benefits (401 K never heard off - 125% for every buck upto 6%) + 1.25% of your base salary as discretionary contribution every year. Fantastic business model and doing great to compete with other big wigs in the payments space. NYC Office is startup like, Very Collaborative, Some of the best minds in business that make a difference to e-commerce transactions across the world work here!

    Cons

    Unsure if C-SAM acquisition was a good idea. There are times when employees get poached to competitors like Visa and Paypal

    Advice to Management

    HR function should try to figure out a solution to stop employees being poached.

    I have been working at MasterCard full-time

    Pros

    Great corporate environment- Great opportunities to work abroad- Global work environment- You will work with and deal with people from all over the world. The company is huge and there are opportunities to move from one department to another Pay is competitive People are nice/friendly Cafeteria is great Gym facilities with classes are nice Beautiful building and property Great for outdoor running and relaxing @ lunch

    Cons

    Your time there largely depends on how well your department is managed. My department had zero work/home life balance. It was serious enough to bust up marriages and cause rapid turnover- Other departments with a work/home life balance were happier and had little to no turnover Its hard to move to different departments without it being top secret and you having an in with the area you are trying to move to. Everything is far away/long drive so your pretty much stuck on site in terms of lunch plans but you are still on a beautiful sprawling well maintained property. So as long as you can do with out fast food, you should be fine. Commute is horrendous

    Advice to Management

    Allow more positions with flexible schedules. Create unorthodox schedules (2nd shift/split shift/telecommute etc)for departments that have high turn over.
