    Pros

    small company with big brand name. many opportunities to get involved in different projects and learn new stuff. close relationship between employees.

    Cons

    no obvious cons. one thing could be too many internal policies or work flows to follow, which may slow down the work pace.

    Pros

    Great team, wonderful people, good location and plenty of opportunities to learn and grow in multiple directions.

    Cons

    Nothing so far. But if there is a gun to my head, I would say the timings... It gets pretty stressful at times.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing. This is utopia.

    Pros

    Your points-of-view count! MasterCard is collaborative, but not consensus-stuck. Very good work-life flexibility, dynamic CEO, fantastic products

    Cons

    Matrixed environment can be constraining. Not everyone is looking updownleftright yet.

    Advice to Management

    Force the issue of working cross functionally. Do not leave that to HR to solve. This has to be directed and driven at the business level.

    Pros

    Company encouraging diversity (in age, race, culture and background)
    Encourage and provide tools for successful networking and skill-set building
    Value their employees and highly recommend moving internally (vertically or horizontally) within the organization
    Proactive in getting new employees oriented and jump-started in the workplace
    Benefits packages

    Cons

    Security is given highest priory, so if you're not careful, slip-ups can result in reprimands and if repeated possible dismissal.
    Help desks can sometimes be difficult to understand and work with. Which isn't great as you try and get yourself situated early on.

    Advice to Management

    So far no recommendations, but still relatively new.
