    Current Employee - Business Analyst in O'Fallon, MO (US)

    I have been working at MasterCard full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Company is well positioned to succeed in the future. Good branding and well known.

    Cons

    Compensation is below other firms in the financial services field. Not a lot of opportunity to move up or get promoted. Most of middle management are fairly old and unambitious who are content doing the minimum amount of work required to keep their 9-5 job. Management's attempt to make the workplace more "fun" and lively" is adding a pool table that almost no one uses. Many of the younger and more creative employees seem to be snatched up by competitors such as Visa.

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

    Pros

    -CEO brings in a new and energizing perspective
    -CEO also pushes for diversity, change, and innovation
    -Company is going through a culture change inviting new ideas, perspectives, innovations, millennial employees
    -Educational assistance for undergrad and grad school is great
    -Stock prices continue to prosper in reflection of the embraced changes (cultural, technological, innovations)

    Cons

    -Many old school employees (those before IPO) are resistant to change
    -Many prefer the status quo
    -Bureaucracy is a problem causing delays in time to market initiatives and embracing new process improvement ideas
    -Politics at times play major deterrents impacting project and human resource advancements
    -Employees feel overbooked with tasks and this is considered 'the MasterCard way' . This causes burnouts and employees seek other positions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Be cognizant of your teammates and don't treat them as only a 'human resources'
    -Really help employees grow in their career, so don't hold them back
    -When employees are overbooked with tasks and can't always meet the outpacing demands, don't say 'it's a time management issue'
    -Give hard working internal employees opportunities to grow and not just fill positions with external people.
