    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.

    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.

    Pros

    Benefits and company is moving in right direction overall

    Cons

    I have new boss, and unfortunately she is the worst boss I ever had. Except for her I had reasonable managers so far in my career at mastercard. Its sad that I may have to leave company soon due to this. Some times you get dealt with bad cards.

    Pros

    Great benefits, impressive 401k matching, flexible work schedule and environment.

    Cons

    Being global, you may have to adjust your schedule at times to connect with others as your team may not all be in your local area. This may also require travel which can vary as a pro or con given an individual's preference.

    Advice to Management

    You are listening. More importantly, you are doing something about it! Keep up the great work!! Thank you for continuously striving to make this a great place to work!
