    Pros

    Policies are really good.. very employee friendly policy but all in vain if you have useless management

    Cons

    Too much power concentrated in wrong hands.. if you are unlucky enough to be under a bad manager or management kiss goodbye to your personal life. It is as if they own you as they are paying you salary. Work overload, no work from home even if it is late, micro management, biased towards certain employees.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to retain employees, listen to why they are leaving.. work on the feedback provided. Or else this will be an excellent company failing in India due to ignorance by management.

    I worked at Mastercard full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The only reason someone would join would be brand MasterCard. an Initial salary and policies may look good but that is everywhere provided for good skills.

    Cons

    There are unlimited. There is a clear bias and discrimination from the management at the onsite while providing any benefits. They discriminate while providing any policy benefits to the onsite and employees located in Pune. Even the Pune local management has made it worse by following the path of their onsite manager. There is no transparency . They are more interested into creating conflicts, monitoring people for every minute they spend or even for the breaks taken. There is no work life balance, no work or calls from home allowed even when it is late . They are least concerned about full time employees as they think with money they can always choose the contract employees. The power is in the hands of managers and if they want they can do anything even if it is not in line with MasterCard values. And somebody who speaks against them, they make the life miserable. There is also no clear path with respect to career progression as even though good technical talent joins MasterCard, the management without skills not just technical but also people management make the MasterCard brand and image look poor.

    Advice to Management

    You need to keep your eyes open and look at things going wrong . If people are leaving or there is discrimination, it needs to be noticed and action should be taken. Sooner or later, no talent would stay for longer.

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

    Pros

    Good Work life balance,
    Good insurance policy, Most important good leaves and no pressure on minimum working hours

    Cons

    No onsite, Disruptive management decision on employee retention,
    Indians in US (upper management) are racist - No onsite to offshore employees.
    Pathetic HR - all talent retention policies are meant for non-Indian (US folks).
    Higher management never bother to listen real feedback on employee retention and keep enjoying recruitment cycle.

    Advice to Management

    Looks like soon all India HUB oofices will be shut down, if they don't change their mindset to retain employees here, rather than recruiter outer vendor, contractors.

    Free snacks,
    Work life balance,
    Good domain to work with .
    Etc. .
    No other pros, everything else is cons.

    Cons

    Very poor people management. They are not doing their job well. Just hiring does not fulfill everything but maintaining relationship and +ve environment within teams and members is highly required. Managers do not care about all these. Too much difference between what they actually say and what they follow/do. No technical activities, everything just show off

    Advice to Management

    My heartily request to higher management from US to take reviews from technical developers at Vadodara and do quick action as soon as possible.

    Pros

    If you are willing to learn then you might get few chance to grow at the same time keeping in mind that you would face lots of barrier for doing extra work, there are lot of people who are in comfort and they will try to let you down when ever some try to do something innovative or new.

    Cons

    Personally doesn't refer anyone to work at MasterCard Vadodara office because here people tendency and mindset is just like cheap guy working in a small company full of politics.

    And if you are good at handling politics then it's a good place to work because manager here at this location only to buttering specially in QA where they are not willing to learn and develop.

    Good company but typically older company culture C-Sam

    Advice to Management

    Please take care of environment it is running day by day especially in QA organization where people doesn't want to learn any thing new.

    Brand name only, If u like service based culture .

    Cons

    Lot of managers from service based organizations try to push that type of culture !
    they just create an aura but actually is just a gas balloon. Micro management , unnecessary updates is the norm of the day at Matercard!
    Nothing much to learn in therms of work and technology.
    Indian teams is treated as just poor cousins of the team in US , Australia, etc.

    Advice to Management

    try to make it a real product company!!

    Pros

    Brand and Flexible working hours

    Cons

    Just name sake they are created process and policies nor the mangers or Senior HR employees knows the complete process and policy. Higher HR employees always pretend to be busy they don't have time or concern to heard employees problem. No practice of retention policy. Senior HR is for no use nor they have brain. Its totally different experience and practice followed in Vadodara Mastercard then other Mastercard offices.

    Advice to Management

    Please hire some well knowledge and experience employees on Senior. HR role and also they need to hire some employees from other Mastercard offices.
