I have been working at Mars full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

You own and drive your career. What you do and how you do it are equally important. For those that can build relationships, collaborate, build teams and drive business results will be rewarded with opportunities. No functional limits. Mars likes generalists that can jump from function to function and perform.

Cons

Associates at Mars are given a high level of responsibility and autonomy. The culture is not very disciplined, processes are loose, documentation trails difficult to follow and work load very high.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Preach work life balance but continued added responsibilities makes it difficult to perform to a high level without sacrificing on life outside work.

    Pros

    A lot of freedom and responsibility the minute you walk through the door.

    It's all about who you know, sometimes you can miss out on good career opportunities if you don't talk to the right person at the right time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get more in touch with the human side! It's not all about the numbers.
