    Pros

    Great company that provides incredible benefits and bonus structure. The FinTech space is very interesting and constantly changing so you will learn a lot.

    Cons

    Needs more openings for younger employees. Too many people are at mid management level unnecessarily. Use that money to create more associate and analyst level positions.

    I worked at Mastercard full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Organized and lots of cross-functional teamwork. Good benefits and good communication across the company about employee programs. Good training about payment processing across global markets.

    Cons

    Like any large company things move more slowly than at small and medium sized companies. This slower movement is also a factor of the high level of security on any financial data -- comes with the territory.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to inform employees about the expectations on new programs, providing realistic expectations about deliverables but also noting that the first concern is security and keeping all aspects of cashless commerce safe and secure.

    I worked at Mastercard as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Great team.
    - My manager let me work on projects that I wanted to work.
    - My manager genuinely cared about her interns

    Cons

    The only cons is the place where the office is situated. Otherwise it is a really great company to work for.

    Advice to Management

    I would encourage more group based projects for intern as it helps them get a glimpse of what it is like working in a team at a big company.
