    The working culture is good in O Fallon Office.

    The management at Mastercard India(Pune) is pathetic and so is the work culture. If anybody is looking to join Mastercard India I won't recommend.

    Advice to Management

    Somebody from STL office needs to be there in Mastercard India(Pune) office so that things can work how they work in STL office.

    I worked at Mastercard full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    MasterCard under the leadership of Ajay Banga is trying to be a payments technology innovator and leader. This vision is working, as evidenced by amazing stock growth. Many of the newer people that they have hired are go-getters with great backgrounds who will work tirelessly to fulfill this vision. I enjoyed my years at this company and learned lots from very smart co-workers who came from McKinsey and BCG as well as Silicon Valley startups. The company is innovative and fairly nimble given its size. It was a pleasure to work there (most of the time) and I would probably go back for the right opportunity.

    Cons

    Beware of people who have been at the company more than 10 years. There are lots of them. These people are "old school MasterCard." They are not particularly innovative or aggressive, and they have little to no desire to find new ways to solve problems. They clock in and clock out, collecting a decent salary and bonus. They live nearby and like having an easy commute and treat their roles like a 9 to 5 country club. Mr. Banga seems to be aware of these leeches and slowly but surely a few of them get laid off each year. Just don't make the mistake of working for one of them. It will just take you that much longer to get where you need to be. This happened to me, twice, and therefore I moved on.

    Advice to Management

    Keep creating opportunities for employees to take calculated risks and challenge the status quo. Invest in great developers. A technology company needs great strategic minds and the developers who can actually put the vision into action.

    Open an office in the city to attract young talent
