Pros

Culture, culture, culture. Associates' commitment to the 5 Principles is felt across all functions in each of the segments, and the open-office floorpans really contribute to the collaboration and sense of community present in all locations.

Also, the diverse segments of Mars provide many options for a long and fulfilling career within the company. That being said, Mars values independence and associates who take initiative with their careers and within their roles. There are innumerable resources for development and advancement within the company, but if you're not willing to take your career in your own hands it will be hard to move up!

Cons

The constant availability of candy and ice cream pretty much guarantees you'll gain 15 pounds within the first month of work...at any office...even in the Petcare division!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Encourage more cross-segment networking.

    Pros

    Good benefits and nice location

    Cons

    Management selects employees they want to move up the chain otherwise there is nowhere to go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All employees have value to add to the company. You should really devote time to discover each individual's potential. Don't just shove them out the door when you decide they no longer fit in with the rest of a department. .

    Pros

    Good pay. Good work / life balance. Opportunity to travel abroad if you desire. Strong company with solid brands and a dep financial foundation.

    Cons

    Culture moves people to worry more about their careers than the work at hand. People are moved into other divisions in the middle of projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on current work and people that should move up will rise above the rest.
