    Former Employee - Senior Manager/Director
    Former Employee - Senior Manager/Director

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

    Pros

    Pay continues to be above the 50% percentile. International exposure and experience. Good people in most of the positions except leadership.

    Cons

    A confused leadership. Blame oriented, Engagement is only a number to achieve but not truly practiced. If you are 50 or more they work hard on getting you out of the organization. Work life balance is only a principle on paper try practicing and we will fire you. Highly political environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to drive long term success. The current process for rewording managers and promoting them is based on success for the current year. Most managers don't care if the department or the company will fail within the next two years because they will likely already be promoted and it will be another persons mess to clean up. The company is lost between the old family run environment and now the board who is focused on showing continued success by hiding the truth because they don't want the family to fire them. Please practice the MARS principles the MARS family and name that spread across the world is in your hands. Your people are you biggest asset, don't focus on getting a 5 on your Gallup rating focus more on walking the talk not getting achieving the target. Your people are very bright take ownership in their success and if they are failing look at what you have done to cause that. Take ownership in your decisions and encourage those who are giving you the tough feedback not those who are telling you what you want to hear.
