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

    Pros

    Love that my company cares enough to keep asking as well as providing tools, programs and ways to get ahead. Not just financially but emotionally as well. We have 5 paid days per year to volunteer to any of our favorite charities as well as an expanded pat leave globally...not to mention that #acceptancematters.

    Cons

    Takes a bit of time to learn about other teams and what they do or how you should align with them

    Pros

    The benefits and pay are amazing- especially for what is required of you

    Cons

    Can be issues with having a crummy people manager but then you just move laterally and resolve that issue.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Just yesterday, they increased our 401K match and everyone was thrilled. Ajay is a wonderful leader of this company and I can't wait to see what the future holds for Mastercard.
