    Pros

    Dynamic Innovative Environment. Corporately making some good window dressing moves that look good to the street and have a good story.

    Cons

    Massively incompetent management for Canada. MasterCard fantastic innovators but terrible at execution which is less than half assed. No commitment to actually execute.

    Pros

    Dynamic CEO is leading the company through its best phase in its history.

    Cons

    Still some old-fashioned thinking prevalent in the company which wants to compete with the top technology companies.

    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.

    Pros

    Flexible schedules available for most people. Good pay and benefits at higher-level positions. Reasonably family-friendly if you push it. There are some very smart people there.

    Cons

    They will work you as hard as you let them. Processes are constantly changing and rarely documented. Outsourced service providers have spotty quality. Heavy politics and poor planning are the rule, not the exception.

    Advice to Management

    Foster greater communication and teamwork. Responsibilities are split across many different groups and it often requires escalations to management to get people to work together.

    Pros

    Great benefits to general employee population. Best 401K I have ever participated in. The global nature of the business is exciting and interesting.

    Cons

    The old boys club guard is hard to shake... they continue to promote people without full posting of opportunities. People are moved to California from NY to work with VC's with little to no background of working with them prior..... difficult position for them to be dropped into. Not competitive salary wise to the bay area engineering culture

    Advice to Management

    get your comp competitive to the environment and do not use the national scale. Engineers also need to be interested in working on exciting things.
