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

Pros

What you learn is only limited by your drive to learn. Flexible schedules are a perk. Benefits are competitive. Strong technology focus on the core network enables value added products to be developed.

Cons

Bureaucracy in middle management inhibits productivity. Need to create better alignment to vision communicated by executive leadership. Software Development culture not quite state of the art - no vision in procuring the right tools to do the job.

Advice to Management

Hire better talent and create an environment where they succeed. Stop the cover your ass culture.

    Pros

    Company has been on the path of innovation, it has a great business model and our brand is well known.

    Cons

    MasterCard went public in 2006, prior to that they were private. There is an old culture here that is not keen on changing. We need to work on that.

    Advice to Management

    Trying to drive innovation and fun throughout a company is a fantastic things however cannot be done in a suit and tie. Executives need to come to work dressed down to promote a more relaxed environment that promotes innovation

    I have been working at Mastercard full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    MasterCard is amazing both in its focus on consumers and on employees. Our benefits are very generous (i.e. 3 weeks of vacation your first year, benefits from Day One, etc.). A ton of training is offered as well as an amazing education assistance policy (100%!!!). Our CEO is down-to-earth, easy to understand and follow his vision, and a good person, what an awesome combination!

    Cons

    beauracracy is still very heavy in certain areas

    Advice to Management

    Too many rules, too many forms and procedures. Progress has been made but there is much to do.
