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

    Pros

    One of the best companies I've worked for. Great work environment, great growth potential, flexible work hours. In my experience, employees were cared for and taken good care of.

    Cons

    Health benefit we're my only complaint. Although, it's not entirely their fault. Most companies were/are not able to provide affordable benefits. A PLUS side to that is the company offered employees money towards their HSA account to help offset.

    Advice to Management

    I found management to be open to employees at most levels. Keep having an open mind and ear - many times the added perspective is highly beneficial.

    Pros

    Growth oriented. Smart people. Buying vocalink is a start moving into new Payment types. The Purchase office is fantastic place to work.

    Cons

    The culture is very internally focused and needs to move faster to embrace and implement new payment offerings. They also do not embrace remote work force. In the digital age not sure why they need workers in office every day.

    Advice to Management

    Support and embrace a remote workforce policy. No reason in this digital world and with Skype we can not higher and support people who don't work in Purchase or St. Louis.

    I worked at Mastercard full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Management lets you know what is expected and the managers do not micro-manage you. They expect communications when difficult issues occur and for the most part they let you do your job. Mastercard has excellent benefits.

    Cons

    It is hard to get promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Work with employees to either promote them or work with them to transfer to another department.
