The Mars Agency – Why Work For Us?

Berry Gordy felt it when he founded Motown. Henry Ford infused it into his Model T. And following the lead of Detroit’s great pioneers, The Mars Agency is powered by it. What is the fuel-injected secret ingredient? Soul. It’s in the sound, the rhythm and the steady beat of steel. And in this percussive, churning city we feel a gritty pride in. 

Detroit runs freely through the veins of The Mars Agency and continues to propel us beyond 8 Mile to the farthest corners of the Earth. Today, The Mars Agency is a fully integrated, global industry leader in shopper marketing with shopper-friendly offices in eight U.S. cities as well as London & Toronto. From the D to the world and still on the move. And unlike other marketing agencies that have something to prove, we have a lot to offer. We create impact.

    Mostly catty AE'S and Senior AE'S....MANAGEMENT ALWAYS treated me was the jealousy of other peers and "team members" which forced me to quit.

    Seriously one girl, who is now a manager, was so jealous of how much better I was doing on her old account that she started a rumor about me sleeping with co-workers AND that I was getting a divorce!!! I dealt with it and tried to professionally handle it for over 10 months but with the job pressure and her negativity, ALONG with other jealous females I left ASAIC!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire the trouble makers and keep doing the great incentives!

    Cattiness among all levels of the lazy, non-productive employees is forcing the good ones out!
