    I have been working at Mars

    Pros

    Very open and friendly culture, flat hierarchy, great relationships between all levels (management and non-management), the Mars 5 principles, friendly and helpful colleagues, a lot of freedom, a fun place to work!

    Cons

    Very decentralised, sometimes too much of freedom and little structure, not always easy to get the job done. Communication and knowledge transfer is not the best. Either you love it and can work for, or you don't.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the freedom, but add more structure.

    I worked at Mars

    Pros

    The company has good benefits along with promoting a good work / life balance. The base salary is pretty competitive. There are some great people that you will work with. Company has a solid cash flow and has a strong market share in many of the divisions.

    Cons

    Most positions have group or division bonus plans which means that your individual performance doesn't affect your total compensation fairly. The company is slow to change at times with somewhat vague communication from senior managment. There is a little too much corporate red tape when it comes to sometimes the smallest tasks being completed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More concise communication especially when it comes to major changes. Less bureaucratic red tape when it comes to basic changes or implementation of changes.
