    Pros

    The Salary, Bonus, Matching Money and Benefits are good and if you're in the right department the work can be interesting

    Cons

    It is a fear based culture, driven by a ubiquitous old boys network. The culture does not promote accountability or in some cases even plain logic. It isn't a huge company and yet it is a bit like working for a government agency.

    Advice to Management

    Your long time culture based on the Associtaion will kill your future if you can't figure a way to change it into being based on the natures of Business

    Pros

    Very well positioned company to take advantage of existing as well as future trends in payment industry. Multiple connections and alliances among banks, processors and corporate partners enable MasterCard to be viewed as an attractive partner for electronic commerce and payments. Potential is high, execution is a challenge.

    Cons

    Very slow to enable advancements to take advantage of market conditions in a timely manner. Many self-driven innovations fall short of market needs. Current management changes and personnel displacements have created large gaps in expertise and "brain drain" syndrome. They appear destined to repeat past failures due to lack of experience among market-facing staff. Potential is offset by inability to execute.

    Advice to Management

    Create innovative products that can actually be used and earn profits. Do better market research. Mobile MoneySend, PayPass, InControl and others "sound good" but are not serving the needs of those who would use and pay for them as services.
