    Amazing place & culture + values. A technology firm with a long term focus.

    Pros

    Doing good by doing well initiatives; commitment to diversity, inclusion, social impact. The senior leadership walks the walk and lives by example. I work on one of the most diverse teams, both in terms of culture, background, origin, professional experience, tech & non-tech, short-term and long-term thinkers. Have had an opportunity to explore new technology, work with a lot of start-ups, and work on long-term projects that can have a big impact on the company 5-10-15 years from now. Phenomenal team culture and camaraderie. The company's response to Covid-19 + inequality is something that I am tremendously proud of. As well as it's commitment to privacy, security, user-centricity. You can find challenging assignments here and find others who are interested in solving problems. I continue learning and experimenting every day! Absolutely phenomenal people to work with. Mastercard is a place/company to be proud of.

    Cons

    Team camaraderie can vary across teams (as in any place). Rarely, but you can sometimes run into people who believe Mastercard is untouchable in terms of its competitive moat, whereas we need to be bold and willing to disrupt from within (and a lot of teams already do!).

    Pros

    Pay is competitive for certain locations Good entry into the financial services/fintech world Stable company with a core product that basically prints money

    Cons

    Horrible engineering culture. Lots of slackers and coasters who have been at the company forever and collect a nice paycheck, but do nothing to modernize. Its like working in a time capsule from 1992 from a technology point-of-view.
