MasterCard has a great culture. It was relaxed but professional at the same time. I learned so much and had such a great experience.
Of course, as any college student would say- it's an office job. Being inside 7 hours a day 5 days a week isn't how you'd ideally want to spend your summer, but it was worth it.
Advice to Potential Interns
Network, network, network! Everyone at MasterCard genuinely cares about helping you succeed and is excited about helping you get there. I didn't meet a single person who wasn't thrilled to take 30 minutes out of their day to sit down and answer all of my questions and get to know each other (and don't be afraid to reach out to group heads and executives- they're just as open and friendly!)
Advice to Management
There is very little that MasterCard needs improving on.
