I worked at Mars full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Good benefits and pay. Focuses on work/life balance. The open office environment encourages approachability. Promotes educational development through continuous training, development programs and education reimbursement.

Cons

As with most big companies its about who you know, this is not to say that opportunities are not available to all however, it can be hard to one to be noticed. Although they promote mentoring, some mangers do not provide sufficient time to develop their mentees.

    Pros

    Pay is very competitive
    Benefits are average
    Allow you to bring pets to work

    Cons

    Little to no communication about vision and how people fit in
    If you have different ideas of suggestions that don't "fit" their mold - you're risking your job
    Political
    Very different environment from the candy side of the business - little people focus
    Little to no trust in leadership

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some strong leaders who can communicate an inspiring vision and combine the people side with the business side and then trust your people to help the business move forward.
