A Changing Company, with Great Prospects

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
White Plains, NY (US)

I worked at MasterCard

Pros-Dynamic new CEO with very good ideas and style
-Strong balance sheet and core products
-Strong brand
-Changing payments landscape is making work much more interesting and challenging
-Potential to be a really great place to work

Cons-There is a very strong existing culture that limits internal communication, questions, and risk taking
-New CEO is trying to change culture. This leads to 1) uncertainty in may parts of the organization and 2) Challenging internal politics
-Risk that new CEO may not be successful

Advice to Senior ManagementSet up means to hear what all levels of the company are thinking and convince employees they are not risking career success by speaking out.
