I have been working at Mastercard full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Benefits, commute, smart people. Company tries to create an innovation culture but it is a struggle. Very relationship based, which can be a pro for some people.

Cons

Everyone is in charge to the point that no one is. Long tenured employees make change extremely difficult. Structure hinders progress, consensus culture. Complete lack of process consistency in all areas. New leaders come in and we are always starting all over again.

Advice to Management

Fix the the structure and create talent pool depth.

    I worked at Mastercard full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Salary, flexibility, some very smart and innovative people

    Cons

    For a company that is suppose to be cutting edge on innovation, mobile commerce, and technology, getting anything actually completed is at a snail's pace. Too much bureacracy, constant backstabbing. Anyone with an ounce of ethics is miserable which is fortunate for the company because most employees don't have any.

    Advice to Management

    Don't put so much trust in your business leaders. Many of them are using your money for boondoggles, awarding millions of dollars in contracts to friends and relatives, and taking three hour lunches.
