Good Company in Confused State

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Purchase, NY (US)

I worked at MasterCard

ProsVery well positioned company to take advantage of existing as well as future trends in payment industry. Multiple connections and alliances among banks, processors and corporate partners enable MasterCard to be viewed as an attractive partner for electronic commerce and payments. Potential is high, execution is a challenge.

ConsVery slow to enable advancements to take advantage of market conditions in a timely manner. Many self-driven innovations fall short of market needs. Current management changes and personnel displacements have created large gaps in expertise and "brain drain" syndrome. They appear destined to repeat past failures due to lack of experience among market-facing staff. Potential is offset by inability to execute.

Advice to Senior ManagementCreate innovative products that can actually be used and earn profits. Do better market research. Mobile MoneySend, PayPass, InControl and others "sound good" but are not serving the needs of those who would use and pay for them as services.
