    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

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    There are some good people there.

    Cons

    They advertise flex schedules and work from home but yet they don’t let their employees use any of that as it is at manager discretion. It was just removed from my department and people are not happy about it. That’s why they came to work here in the first place. Lack of morale in the workplace.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying, fire those at the SVP level who don’t do their work and promote individuals who deserve it.
