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

    Pros

    Technology. Challenge. Better than average salary structures. Other Fortune 100 companies look to benefit from the experiences a lengthy tenure at MasterCard brings.

    Cons

    The culture changed significantly after becoming a publically traded company. MasterCard now resembles any other corporate entity; it's lost its sense of fellowship, teamwork and identity. It's been a stressful, but rewarding culture in the past; however, more recently it's become especially cut-throat and overly competitive.

    Office dwelling management, VPs (Sr. Business Leaders) and above, are very difficult to trust - they value their bonus structure more than their employees or commitments.

    Be careful, not all departments are created alike. Some are pure meat grinders with little or no work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Look in the mirror and reflect:
    1. Am I the person I aspired to be as a child?
    2. What are my motivators and why do I work at MasterCard?
    3. Whom do I serve - the betterment of the corporation and my team, or myself?
