Entrepreneurial environment

Director, Consulting (Former Employee)
Miami, FL (US)

I worked at MasterCard full-time for less than a year

ProsVery creative environment. They are willing to allow experimentation, which is very satisfying. You have to be able to thrive on chaos since there is a lot going on. I do, so I loved it.

ConsSome resources don't contribute much and thus their focus tends to be on tangential matters, which creates a frustrating environment at times.

Advice to Senior ManagementConsider weeding out the low performers. Their equal "participation" during decision making could be discouraging.

Excellent company to work for

Senior Business Leader (Current Employee)

I have been working at MasterCard full-time for more than 5 years

ProsI think the pay and benefits are among the best in the payments industry. The company is extremely stable, excellent financials, and outstanding stock performance since IPO in 2006.

ConsNeed to focus more on promoting from within. Sometimes slow to market with new products and services. In some cases, a follower rather than a leader.
