Professional environment

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Worked at MC for two and half years as a contractor. Good work environment and team culture. Professional environment, and large enough to move around within the organisation.

Political, unpredictable and unprofessional environment.

Disparaging working environment, ambiguous management and strategy. Little cohesion across functional areas and teams. Talent not very well recognised. Great opportunity for Mastercard to continue to be market leading, but much more employee care required.

Pros

Colleagues

Cons

Some of the Management ethics

Culture needs to be improved

The culture in the Canary Wharf office is horrendous. Favoritism at its finest. HR really need proper management and supervision . They talk the talk / abundance of compliance training but afraid they don’t walk it! Everything is ultimately managed by the US whom you hardly ever see in the UK offices. The PA’s and business assistants have all the power and most sales people have to succumb to them. There is no need for Pulse Surveys and training on the Code of Conduct unless it’s adhered in practice. All these are merely tick box exercises which inadvertently takes a lot of time off the sales teams.

Pros

Good salary package and flexible working

Cons

Bad culture

Productive and fun workplace

Dynamic and engaging work environment focusing mainly on the support and operation of the Mastercard Pre-Paid card business, specifically, the global Cash-Passport product. I learned about Compliance and Anti Money Laundering regulations that I had not been exposed to in my previous work experiences. A lot of the business is very project oriented and adherence to strict deadlines was essential. Good benefits were provided and on the whole, I worked with some great people.

Pros

Great people, good location

Cons

Week-end work and a frequently high-pressure setting

Good work

A good place to work generally but a lot of time is wasted by long processes which don't really as intended. They are very much in need of a LEAN/Six Sigma style review to stop wasting all this time and energy.

Pros

good salary

Cons

long processes

Excellent

Easy to get along with anyone, real sense of community within the company. Challenging work but if stuck, can ask anyone for advice. Everyone is very friendly.

Productive and fun work place

It was a good job, staff were friendly and supportive of one and other, management were very understanding and patient with employees, however stern when needed. The hardest part of the job was trying to sell the Debenhams' Mastercard to customers who didn't want them, however we were still able to hit targets sufficiently.

Pros

Discount on stock

Productive workplace

Use 4XSystems, Inbound and Outbound calls inc B2B, Emailing, Faxing, Excalating when needed, dealing with complaints, securing sensitive data and personal information, recommending financial uses, International calls dealing with International timescales, hitting targets, building rapport, going the extra mile. I have learnt a huge amount of different personalities and how to expand and deal with each to perform an outstanding call and improve and keep customer satisfaction, I have learnt how to use my conversational skills to build rapport and tailor each call to each individual. I love working within a team hitting a goal as part of the enjoyment but I do prefer to work alone so I can overachieve and look for Career Progression. The hardest part would be the Night-Shifts and not being stretched to my full potential however I do excel and the Team make it very enjoyable especially when hitting targets. The most enjoyable part of the job would be helping a client who knows basic information go away from the call feeling trusted in the product/company, very warming and actually very suprised sometimes at how much the product does fit their suitability and personal needs.

Pros

Contracted hours

Cons

Night-Shifts

good workplace

managed a team of 3, 2 receptionists and a facilities coordinator. we worked well as a team. I enjoyed the fact that no day was ever the same, it was a varied role. Space planning was one of the most enjoyable aspects and also working with the suppliers and contractors.
