I have been working at MasterCard full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

innovation creates an environment of continuous learning

Cons

it's time for a changing of the guard - too many SBLs and Group Heads have been around for way too long.
The Stl office is in need of a fresh, new, faster, less bureaucratic approach to innovation.
On board super sharp contractors, and then allow them to leave after imparting valuable knowledge and experience after 3yrs, instead of converting to an employee.
Promotion process is not transparent. Promotions seem to depend on who you know, and who they know, instead of quality of work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If aspire to cultivate an innovative culture the dinosaurs in management need to step aside.

    I worked at MasterCard full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Great CEO who pushes people out of their comfort zone and challenges the status quo
    - Good pay, along with good benefits
    - Slowly changing the way the company is operating by becoming more technology driven. Huge plus.
    - Focus on innovation, youth, and a multigenerational workforce
    - Culture is significantly improving by being more transparent

    Cons

    - There are too many people there resistant to change
    - A strong network of people who've been there 15+ years
    - Takes forever to get something basic done; no one wants to take accountability or ownership of anything

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please LISTEN to what the CEO has to say. If you can't do the job, step down and let someone more capable do it OR if you don't want to, tap into fresh perspective and not your network who've been there 15+ years. Change cannot happen this way. Look forward to seeing MasterCard achieving great things in the future!
