    Pros

    Pay and benefits are above average. Opportunities to cross over traditional discipline boundaries are quite good with the right skill set and performance history. This includes both lateral moves and promotions.

    Cons

    Organization has become quite flat in recent years. Many must be content with lateral movement for quite some time before being promoted.

    Family owned values are becoming less and less important as company tries to drive "shareholder" earnings increases.

    Pros

    Open office atmosphere and amazing brands makes Mars a unique and compelling place to work. The travel opportunities abroad and throughout the US network allow an associate to be exposed to different ways of making and selling chocolate.

    Cons

    The acquisition of Wrigley has put a lot of short term pressures on Mars to cut costs and return a certain bottomline at all costs. This would often mean senseless hiring freezes and travel bans when all logic and economic conditions in the marketplace would tell you otherwise. The company is extremely short term focused.
