    I have been working at Mastercard full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    No Bench Concept
    You can grow in the organization based on your talent and your willingness to achieve what you want
    Salary compensation and other packages are good
    Work env is good and work life balance is maintained
    Casual office hours
    You easily get work from home and lots of leave
    Managers and senior managers are easily approachable

    Cons

    If you are joining in place like Vadodara and if you want to switch to a new company, then it will be hard for you
    At Vadodara, I have seen discrimination with non-Gujarati employees (Thankfully the manager is now not with the company anymore)
    Payment/e-Wallet domain knowledge can help you in very smaller no of companies
    No medium/long term on site opportunities
    3 months long notice period
    If you are a contract employee, then your employment with the company will be for max 2 years only

    Advice to Management

    Bring more innovative projects to Vadoadra

    Pros

    I have completed my 2nd year at MasterCard and I feel very lucky to have been working here. It's a people oriented firm and believes in diversity. It gives me enough work-life flexibility, that even after being a mom of a small kid, I enjoy working here. Thanks to environment and the kind of policies that MasterCard flows.. it makes life easy. Few things money can't buy....for everything else there is MasterCard.

    Cons

    Need to think hard about cons..

    Pros

    In my 13 years experience, I have never seen a company like MasterCard before. Great place to work, positive environment

    Cons

    I guess training could be better conducted in a class room environment. Setting up a systematic training center with Trainers dedicated to train new joined employees

    Advice to Management

    HR needs to meet the employees more often and conduct Skips

    Pros

    Good Technology Stack. Interesting Domain(Payment). Get exposure to global team with some interesting issues.

    Cons

    Manager Places all his relatives and friends in key positions without any technical interview only through contacts.
    Hikes are offered based on how good rapport you have with manager. No technical knowledge required.
    Manager conveys misleading information to higher management.
    Only few people work, rest all piggyback on their work.
    Dirty Petty Office Politics in Prepaid Management Team Pune.
    Don't have vision for the product.
    Mostly support work.

    Advice to Management

    Test people for they have hired for.
    Keep technical people at least to evaluate them.
    Keep 360 review process.
    Managers should also get reviewed.
