If you're looking for a "job," go work somewhere else. If you're looking for a career, then this is the place for you.

I have been working at The Mars Agency full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Fast-paced, room to think, mobility, awesome culture, work/life balance, MARS is in a lot of different cities and continues to expand, INDEPENDENT company helps it be agile, quick and responsive to the marketplace. Bonuses are great, pay is there and loyalty pays off. Managers listen and care, upper management is absent of greed and truly care about the people of this company

Cons

Structure - constant growing and expanding environment can cause some confusing moments in office politics and can shift around your direct reports, workload etc.

830 start time (though becoming more flexible)

You will always have more work on your plate than you can reasonably tackle

Sometimes the friendly environment removes professionalism and people share things they shouldn't/whine/make excuses etc.

This isn't a "con" for everyone, but this is not an environment for the weak. If you aren't always working as hard as you can and you take things personally, you will not succeed here.

    Pros

    MARS is a place where people with an entrepreneurial spirit can thrive-- there is complete visibility to leadership, and a very DIY attitude. If you have big ideas, here is place where they're willing to listen, and be prepared to take the lead on your idea. Lots of white space and not a lot of red tape. There are many people here who have built long careers at MARS, and who are happy to be here.

    Cons

    Direction changes on an hourly basis. If you don't like your cheese moved, this isn't the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice to focus on one direction-- we waste a lot of time and energy by not getting consensus first.

    Pros

    Great place to work. If you have talent and passion, they will go further than most employers to make sure your happy and challenged here. Great culture and friday partys! Management is consistently looking for ways to improve this company and culture.

    Cons

    There are not many cons to working here. Most complaints I hear are from people that lack ambition and like to blame everyone else for their shortcomings. Love what you do, and you will love working here.
