Mars Inc was a great place to work, plenty of opportunities for advancement and personal development.

Regional Infrastructure Manager (Former Employee)
Waco, TX

I worked at Mars

ProsOpen and frequent communications from senior management. Solid excellent strategies that management was able to communicate and get all associates to commit to as well. Excellent benefits and sincere concern for their associates.

ConsAs the organization continues towards a Management structure that reduces the amount of family influence they need to guard against becoming just another company and away from the very special family run business formulated by core principles that is one of the many foundations for their success.

Advice to Senior ManagementLaunch a program that brings back the 5 principles. Recognize the importance of the manufacturing facilities and what they contribute to the business

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
