    I worked at Mastercard full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great co workers, nice environment, meaningful work. Good benefits!

    Cons

    To advance - you really have to be part of the "in crowd". Once a part of the in crowd - standard HR rules do not apply. Many managers do not have management experience and policies are not applied fairly. Friends are given good assignments and allowed to "work" from home on Fridays. Several managers are known throughout the co to have unreal expectations of their reports and are more focused on their own advancement than supporting the team. Routine 60 - 70 hour weeks are standard under some managers. Complaints to HR go unresolved.

    Advice to Management

    Truly review management practices.

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

    Pros

    I find a great live/work balance here at MasterCard; I start early and end early...usually 7AM - 4PM. The benefits are top notch with access to a gym and great medical and the company is doing very well overall.

    Cons

    On the down side, there is a lot of structure that come along with a bigger, public company...meaning lots of red-tape and reporting to managers.
