Pros

Strong community culture with exceptional Engineering, Sales, and HR departments. Work hard to consistently manufactor and deliver innovative and quality products. Senior management has proven record for profitability and stability. Compensation and Benefits always rank in top 10 percentile of marketplace.

Cons

People rarely leave before retirement because of the superior culture, product line, and benefits. With such as small attrition rate, it is very difficult to move up within the organization.

    Pros

    Good benefits

    on site cafeteria
    nice security guards up front

    Cons

    No understanding of providing benefits to the customer
    Communication is nil
    no standards in place for almost anything

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend some time developing procedures, standards and a way of communicating things to people. Everyone seems to be in mtgs but so little information seems to actually get transferred.

    Far from what was expected from a Mars Inc affiliate

    I worked at MEI

    Pros

    The biggest pro was the opportunity to be tranferred for working directly for Mars Inc.
    This was reflected in a nice work environment, open doors policy, good benefits as compared to similar companies, and overall positive atmosphere.

    Cons

    The great issue was the Mexico plant, located in Queretaro, where management was not alligned with Mars Inc phylosophy, and always had a hidden agenda to reduce benefits and compensation to the personnel with any excuse.
    This situation worsened when the company was sold by Mars Inc and management was much more transparent on the managerial style, privilging people for the personal relationship with the high management, and not based on personal merit or professional preparation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a closer look at how things are being managed in Mexico, since local management is sacrificing good elements to maintain the status quo, and avoiding growth of Coordinator and Junior Management levels, which could make evident that better people could be managing the company.
