      Competitive pay and great benefits at a growing and successful company.

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Really sensitive to external view which means management constantly moves performance indicators for all levels based on market feedback.

      Cons

      Super political in Asia Pacific, many very emotionally deficient senior leaders are allowed to prosper because their numbers are good. Tends to make the company message a little unbelievable around Decency Quotient. But like all things, this might have changed years later.

      Proud to work in Mastercard

      Apr 7, 2021 - Business Development in Singapore

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Mastercard is a great company that offers a breadth of opportunities to anyone who is willing to learn and stretch yourself. Compensation, benefits and perks are good and the overall work environment is flexible.

      Cons

      Good work can easily go unnoticed unless you have the personality and opportunities to be noticed by the leadership. Connections and exposure to the right audience is important for recognition and promotions, sometimes sadly more so than being hardworking and doing a good job.

      Pros

      - Supportive in ESG efforts (funding for COVID relief in India)

      Cons

      - Tried to implement 4.5 day work week for mental health, but in essence it is a compressed work week of 40 hours. So essentially no change, but look good on PR
