    I have been working at Mastercard full-time

    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.

    Pros

    Awesome benefits, plenty of work life balance to be had (depending on your boss). There are plenty of smart people in good positions.

    Cons

    Culture is non-existent, there just isn't one. Prepare to be bored. It is hard to get promoted within any one team. You have to take lateral moves and gain experience to go anywhere at MasterCard. A better wellness program would be appreciated at such a big company. There are some in management that have less than NO background in management.

    Advice to Management

    Promote leaders not whoever is next in line.
