I have been working at Mastercard full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

The life-work balance is wonderful. Everyone pulls together to make things happen and we all take personal pride in quality work. Quality work is usually compenstated for in multiple ways. Truly a global company.

Cons

Upper level management changes too frequently, causing confusion and lack of consistency. Probably like most companies there are some bad seeds in the group that talk out of both sides of their mouth, play favorites and are in it for themselves. NY employees are not flexible in the culturaly differences. Too many opinions and performance reviews based on hear say.

Advice to Management

Consider spending a little more money on simple technology enhancements that support day to day operations, in the long run employees will be more effecient (saving money) and customers will be happier.

Employees still feel that they have no place to go in fear of retaliation. HR recently sat on a phone call un-announced for an hour; very sneaky. I have no trust in the process or the department.

Consider implementing a process for escalating business decisions that are "stuck in the mud" with their existing management.

    I have been working at Mastercard full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    salary is very competitive and innovation of products really good. CEO is inspiring. There are some incredibly smart leaders within the organization. Good at moving people from one function to another

    Cons

    Grp Heads can behave like demi-gods with sense of self entitlement; Purchase culture is stifling, too stiff and unwelcoming. Those who get ahead tend to do so based on who they know. Always seem to have to do more with less

    Advice to Management

    getting things can done can take too long, too many road blocks and culture of risk aversion needs to change

    I have been working at Mastercard full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people to work with at the middle management & lower level.

    People generally excited to go to work in most departments

    Cons

    "Queen Bee" is a typical example of mobbing and playing political games in the work place, everyone fears for their job in that department. Very unhealthy work place to be in.

    Advice to Management

    If changing the corporate culture is a mandate coming from the top, please take a strong look at the department in-charge of you're people.
