Different departments can be very varied in culture but the 5 Principles work to unify the company.

IT Specialist (Former Employee)
West Chester, PA

Pros5 Principles: You have to be a Mars person (or Martian!) to know them, but they are applicable to everyday life and guide all interactions Mars has internally and externally. It's nice to have a framework within which to make decisions. They are fond of hiring ex-military, have good FMLA and other benefits. Once you're Mars, you're always Mars.

ConsA bit of an old boys' network. Very traditional in places, as it is a family-owned company and those tend to be places where women struggle to advance. Not very good work/life balance. Once you're Mars, you're always Mars.

Advice to Senior ManagementMiddle management and team leads tend to be ineffective and stymied for varied reasons. Also, find ways to freshen up the culture, especially in the U.S.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
