    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

    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.

    I have been working at Mastercard full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I've been part of this amazing company for 16 years. Here I've gotten the opportunity to live and work in different countries, enrich myself and family from different cultures, have a network of friends and colleagues from many places in the world and with so diverse points of view. I feel privileged and grateful at the same time as Mastercard has given me plenty of opportunities to develop my skills, broaden knowledge and my view of the world in a challenging and very demanding yet collaborative place.

    Cons

    We have many opportunities and problems as an organization. No question about it. But I think of them as challenges an opportunities to learn and enrich the world. We wouldn't have jobs in problem-free organizations.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in the development of the people of this organization.
