I worked at Mastercard full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Good way to get industry wide experience and access to new technology
People are smart and great to work with

Cons

Terrible senior level management - out for themselves in Purchase. It's about the bloated stock price.
Management infrastructure is very weak, no training and development for managers, there are many bad people managers
You are generally stuck on an account if its a difficult one. There is very little opportunity to move.

    I worked at Mastercard full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Nice people, solidarity among employees. Young workforce.
    They pay fairly well (but you won't have time to spend it).

    Cons

    People with seniority tend to be let go because they are expensive/expendable. In the real world, this cost-saving technique is call age discrimination.
    Management is completely clueless about what their direct reports are doing -- reviews are managed like high school popularity contests.
    Everyone under middle management is expected to work "more than 40 hours" per week. This is glossed over in the interview, but it really means at least 60 hour per week and 24/7 availability.
    Mandatory United Way donations; "strong encouragement" to bank at First National Bank of St. Louis (a silent partner of MC).

    Advice to Management

    Poor management, can't decide which management style to adopt so they change every few months. MC management will not read these reviews because they really don't care!
