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

    Pros

    Good benefits e.g. medical
    Work/life balance
    Supportive of staff doing volunteer work

    Cons

    Too many managers placed in roles they aren't suited for e.g. people with no technical understanding placed in roles requiring a high level of technical comprehension
    Wants to be a tech company, but is struggling to get past 80's technology
    Very poor progression avenues in technical career path
    Very easy for skills to deteriorate due to lack of use. Run your own lab to retain skills if in a technical role

    Advice to Management

    You will keep bleeding talent as long as you treat staff like interchangeable commodities. Good staff are hard to come by. Ones that can bring real improvements that boost revenue streams even more so. Stop wasting such valuable resources
