    I worked at MasterCard full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Very 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider weeding out the low performers. Their equal "participation" during decision making could be discouraging.

    I have been working at MasterCard (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    MasterCard goes all out to get the programs the customers want. Funding is sometimes tight, but your team finds a way to make it happen. I am proud to work for MasterCard.

    Cons

    Timeframes can be grueling, some mangement have unrealistic expectations due to lack of detailed knowledge, but that is everywhere. Work some weekends, but not many.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is still a lot of dead weight with some management, somehow they get by b/c they inherited a good team. Overall, it's hurting progress.
