Hello, I want the honest reviews about MasterCard Pune India. I am planning to join one of PAE(Product and Engineering Team) there. I got to know that WLB is not good in mastercard but in glassdoor it seems good also there is lot of legacy tech stack there. I got some info regarding managers are rude and don't listen to there employees. Is it real? How is senior management and business timelines there? It will be great if you guys share your input on this which will help me to make my decision.

Great culture. Good people who care about the mission. Very low ego environment full of smart and helpful people. The company is currently going through transformation. Going from a startup culture to a larger company culture and Leadership is really trying to take the best aspects of both stages of company growth. The product is also transforming and it is really exciting to be a part of the transformation from just a company rating, reviews and salaries website to a professional community.
Working remote is great, but it impacts culture and connection. Teams seem to always be overworked and stretched too thin. I don't personally feel it, but I hear about it from other teams. Glassdoor has a very very progressive culture that is really focused on DEI. Sometimes it feels like it's a bit too much and it can be distracting or counter productive.4Glassdoor Response3mo
Thank you for taking a moment to share your experience. As a Glassdoor employee, I also see that our company is made up of good people who genuinely care about our mission, transformation, and our "why". I appreciate hearing your personal employee insight, and please trust that our leaders appreciate your input and feedback and will use it to continue improving as an organization. - Britney Martinez, Talent Acquisition Partner

- Great base salary - Leader in industry - Relatively easy product to understand - Generous PTO
- Internal process was a nightmare. Reps have to manage two CRM's (Indeed and Glassdoor) and deal with minor things like billing issues, case management, etc. I found navigating the CRM more complex and burdensome then any other job. - Company talks about diversity equity and inclusion none-stop and it is one of the major driving missions/initiatives of the company, however there is no real diversity of thought. If you are right leaning and have specific beliefs you better keep them to yourself. Executives including the CEO make it very clear where they stand on polarizing/politically charged issues make it clear that your thoughts/beliefs are the "Other" yet, if you were to flip it, and state your thoughts you would be ostracized. This is done openly in company wide meetings, slack discussions, and anonymously on their Fishbowl app. - I found the sales training to be inadequate. I was just told to listen to recordings and in my 1:1's "what can I help you with" which just did not help. - I believe the expectation was that I would be able to use my prior sales experience and skills to sell Glassdoor products, however I felt that to sell an Employer Branding product, there should be specific training. - Bonus structure is completely out of wack and confusing. The company I worked for prior I made almost 2x what I made with Glassdoor, and now with my current job I am on pace to make 2x what I made with Glassdoor. I do not know why great sales people stay with Glassdoor when you can make so much money elsewhere.1

Compensation is fair, and the people I work with are skilled, supportive, & collaborative.
Management is pulled into too many different directions where I'm often wondering what exactly are they managing for our team aside from a weekly team meeting. Burnout is always present and has been expressed continuously each quarter, but there hasn't been any meaningful changes from upper-leadership.

My job at Glassdoor is the best job I've ever had. The work was incredibly interesting, the people I worked with were great, my boss and my grandboss were the best managers I could possibly imagine. The salaries are very good for the UK as well. Work-life balance is great -- you get at least one company day off every month. I was given a exceptional amount of freedom and autonomy for my age and position, and learned an incredible amount whilst I was at the company. Glassdoor really cares about its employees -- benefits are great, we have unlimited paid time off, and even their redundancy package was extremely generous. Oh, and the Indeed office (where GD is located) has free lunch every day. Another bonus: Everyone knows and loves Glassdoor. It felt great to be working for a company whose product I believed was genuinely improving the world while making money at the same time.
Remote-first culture: for some people this is a plus, but for me, it was a *huge* con. If you prefer a vibrant office environment, Glassdoor will probably not provide it, despite their attempts to do it all for everyone. Although the people are great, I didn't feel like I got to know those outside of my immediate team very well, which was largely a function of the lack of in-person interaction. In-person social events are far and few between. It deffo does not have the startup vibe that I hear it used to have. Layoffs: two sets of mass layoffs in three years. As an HR/recruitment tech company, Glassdoor is incredibly vulnerable to shifts in the labour market. EMEA is seen as a growth region for the company, and as such, was impacted far more heavily in both sets of layoffs than the US team was.1Glassdoor Response2d
Thank you for this feedback! I'm so glad to hear you had a great experience here. It's true - our shift to a remote-friendly culture has its pros and cons, and our approach has continued to evolve. I'm just coming off our latest all-marketing in person onsite in San Francisco, which was incredibly recharging to be a part of. And I know we remain committed as leaders to strengthen a sense of community and connection, including supporting in-person gatherings periodically. Thank you again for sharing your thoughts. - Eric Petitt, Senior Vice President of Marketing

-W/L balance -Fair Comp -Great mgrs and co workers -Reasonable workload for role
-Limited growth opportunities -POC promoted at a slower rate -We practice transparency but were caught off guard by the lay offs last year. If theres a way to share that conversations are happening months before, than people could plan accordingly.

There are amazing people here. The company truly cares about you and has great benefits. The culture is wonderful and leadership always encourages a work-life balance and to take your PTO. My manager is extremely supportive, and I love the work I do. Honestly, the best company I have ever worked for and I hope I can work here for a long time!
There are no complaints besides not promoting well-deserved managers and directors.Glassdoor Response2w
Hi there! This awesome review brought a smile to my face! Creating a positive company culture is crucial for fostering a supportive and memorable environment for our Glassdoor team members, and it's wonderful to hear that your experience reflects that. Thank you for all that you do for Glassdoor! - Britney Martinez, Talent Acquisition Partner

The best job I have ever had! The absolute best co-workers in attitude and output. High salary Unlimited PTO + the ability to actually use it B.E.N.E.F.I.T.S!
Difficult to prove ROI at times as brand is more of an elusive concept for some employers. Constant change in management over the past 2 years. Incremental change in compensation for GTM over the past year. Reduction in engineering staff has made bugs hard to resolve quickly
