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

    Pros

    Practically unbreakable business model, leading the way in financial inclusion and responsible social/economic practices. The organization leads with "decency" and is a force for good in Payments and beyond.

    HR practices are thoughtful and progressive. Compensation is excellent.

    Cons

    Conscientious risk management means that decision making can be slow, but ultimately feel we get to the right outcomes.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to promote more agile, design-thinking-centered ways of working, moving away from a waterfall approach to decisions.

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

    Pros

    Great team, excellent benefits, 401k, 2 months paternity leave, from a technical standpoint moving towards latest tech, opportunities to apply for and move laterally within the company, encourage participation to charitable causes.

    Cons

    Strict change management processes for promoting code to production, but considering the sector they are in, it is understandable.

    Speed up enabling teams to automate deployments to production as well.
