    Pros

    1. Higher management is keen on changing things so employees really get a chance to be up-to-date technologist
    2. Salary standards are very good
    3. Management does recognize if you are a good performer
    4. The talent pool in Vadodara is outstanding, they can pull off any job given to them.

    Cons

    1. Local HRBP is just busy in playing politics and dirty tricks. You cannot go to them if you want to complaint about your leader or BL since she may be hand in gloves with that BL. You have to sit back and take punches if you happen to be in that BL's heirarchy. They are like indian police, they primary job is to provide safety to you, but you are afraid of going to them.
    2. Notice period of 3 months. HR can make you serve three months notice period even if you dont have any work. Ridiculous.

    Advice to Management

    1. Please remove local HRBP, they are not adding any value, rather they are spoiling the culture, if needed, have Pune HRBP take care of Vadodara tech hub, have a survey about HR in vadodara office
    2. See if the work type can be diversified in Vadodara office.
    3. Senior management should visit vadodara more often and have meetings with selected individuals, it will help you guage ground realities, otherwise you are doing a great job, please keep up the good work.

    I have been working at Mastercard full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    1. Encouraging, supporting & enthusiastic Management & Team.

                 I joined Mastercard as a fresher, and in the journey till now, I have received immense support and valuable guidance which have helped me grow not just as a valuable professional but as a efficient developer as well.

    2. Energetic work environment.

               One of the many things I love about Mastercard is that, there is always something new is going on around the company. New idea & initiatives, innovative projects & solutions.

    3. Open to changes and ideas

                It doesn't matter how irrelative an idea is, now I always feel that it's worth sharing. Here I have witnessed the culture of keep improving, and for that people just fall in to put there 100% in your idea.

    4. Ethical business & work principles

                 MasterCard's business ethics not only align with lawful business practices, but also towards a positive-constructive work culture with a sense of integrity. And being aware is the first step to act responsible.

    5. Learn-Share-Evolve-Innovate culture

             Here I have seen the change is being derived from employees and not just management. It is always fruitful to engage with other professional and get to know something new day by day.

    6. Work life balance

                 During my interview I asked one thing from my manager, "Will I get sufficient time for self improvement?". And the reply was "Yes, you will get plenty of time for self improvement". And now I can't be more thankful :) . Flexible Work hours.

    7. Abundant learning resources and material for self development.

                  At MasterCard there is an exposure to lot of online learning material as well as the content generated by experienced collaboration ( good for me, a developer).

    Cons

    As a 50+ years of growth, at first it might seem hard to capture current work picture.
