    Beautiful campus, great location for commuters. Friendly colleagues. Opportunities for advancement.

    Some key executives, especially the former bankers, will grill you and expect all of your attention, even if you have other internal clients.

    Advice to Management

    Have HR become more involved to advise on issues that can be resolved before they turn into real problems.

  8. "Overall very good experience with the professionals at Mastercard"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Provides great exposure to all parts of the organization. Once you're in you're able to learn as much of the industry and technology as you're open and willing to.

    Cons

    A challenge to find roles where you are more than individual contributor - although you work cross functionally. It's hard to move up in the organization.

    Pros

    Environment for learning at a fast pace depending on the team you are on. Some teams have much more opportunities than others.

    Cons

    Very strong push to move a lot of jobs to full time employees in India. There is a huge focus on training these new highly under-qualified employees. Things that should be common knowledge for an IT engineer now have to be documented in a step by step manor.
