    Pros

    MasterCard has really good benefits and a bonus and profit sharing program that works well. For the most part people are positive, friendly and helpful. The company also focuses quite a bit on professional development of the staff by requiring development courses be a part of each persons performance review process. They also conduct free seminars and invite subject matter experts to speak on common topics of interest such as personal finance. There are opportunities to grow at Mastercard but as with any company you have to make an effort to market your personal brand so that you can be noticed by senior management.

    Cons

    Often there is too much red tape involved in executing good ideas. As a public company the focus is now on the bottom line and less on people.

    Advice to Management

    none

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Very good work life balance. Also, manaement practices, knowledge sharing and career advancement are dependant upon the area in which you are employed, as there is not a consistant benchmark that is enforced throughout the organization.

    Cons

    The lack of consistancy as described avbove, also the lack of support by HR in dealing with managers that create issues as a result of their lack of competency.

    Advice to Management

    Begin to understand the worth of your workforce. There is a distinct lack of effective management training, and no repercussions for not behaving in an appropriate manner towards employees. Belittling, disrespect and cursing are practiced far too often as a management style, and will never lead to the sustained results you seek.
