I have been working at Mars full-time

Pros

The privately owned family culture, good benefits, belief and use of the Principles and the continued investment in the people.

Cons

Unclear career paths with limitations if you are not mobile. The lean organization means that roles can be too overwhelming for some people and challenge the work life balance of many.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't get caught up in the need to be lean and burn out your good associates with roles that are too demanding.

    I have been working at Mars full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Working with the Petcare division of Mars you can bring your dog to work each day which is a very nice plus. Company has great benefits with 3 weeks vacation your first year. They are very proactive in engaging associates with special events (South American breakfast for the opening day of World Cup was the most recent). If you are talented and willing to work hard, you will get promoted quickly.

    Cons

    As stated above, if you are willing to work hard you will get promoted but you have to put in 50-60 hours each week and it doesn't let up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote a better work/life balance for associates
