I worked at Mars full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Solid company, diverse workforce, listen to associates, allow your to grow your career

Cons

Used to be a family-centered business that valued it's associates more. Since the elder Mars brother's retired, the company is now run by the kids/grandkids and it's much more about the bottom line.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you approve a budge for a project, don't yank funding for it later in the year. Focus more on individuals and their work/life balance.

    I worked at Mars

    Pros

    Good work/life balance for most brand teams
    Open work environment

    Cons

    Knowledge gaps between teams
    Poor leverage of consumer insights team and data analytics

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    cut the "culture fit crap" out of hiring decisions and improve the talent by hiring people who have managed others prior to joining and have strong analytic backgrounds.

    Start training people on IRI analysis and consumer insights...many ABM's and BM's are weak

    I worked at Mars as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    As an intern, I was always treated as a member of the team I worked. It was a very relaxed atmosphere and easy to adapt to after college. Everyone was very friendly and I feel like I was setup to be successful during the internship.

    Cons

    Throughout my internship, I was told that I performed very well but there was never talk of full time employment opportunities. In the office I worked, the internship program was new and they were trying to prove it was worth doing. Seemed more like we were guinea pigs and they would look into properly developing the internship program for their next intern class.
