    -Company is going through a culture change inviting new ideas, perspectives, innovations, millennial employees
    -Educational assistance for undergrad and grad school is great
    -Stock prices continue to prosper in reflection of the embraced changes (cultural, technological, innovations)

    Cons

    -Many old school employees (those before IPO) are resistant to change
    -Many prefer the status quo
    -Bureaucracy is a problem causing delays in time to market initiatives and embracing new process improvement ideas
    -Politics at times play major deterrents impacting project and human resource advancements
    -Employees feel overbooked with tasks and this is considered 'the MasterCard way' . This causes burnouts and employees seek other positions

    Advice to Management

    -Be cognizant of your teammates and don't treat them as only a 'human resources'
    -Really help employees grow in their career, so don't hold them back
    -When employees are overbooked with tasks and can't always meet the outpacing demands, don't say 'it's a time management issue'
    -Give hard working internal employees opportunities to grow and not just fill positions with external people.
