Does Mars offer bonus pay?

Pros

Matching Pension and 401 K Plans. If you're around long enough to collect it. Great Company to work for if you are a rear end smoozer! Get as much as you can up front because raises are a joke even if you're a Top performer! Their 5 Principles .. WHICH BY THE WAY NO ONE IS LEADERSHIP LIVES BY.

Cons

* Company disorganization with Field Sales Team blamed for all the Mgmt issues. * Leadership team says NO Re-Org coming... Instead they call it a RE-Routing! * Only way to get ahead here is by kissing up to all the Leadership team. *Extremely wasteful Company. * VERY Cheap. *Promises bonuses you will never get as they constantly change the goals if it looks like you'll achieve. *Bonuses are based on Company performance rather than Individual.. therefore you can work your butt off and get the same pitiful bonus as the slacker does. * Yearly review process is horrible!! * Leadership Teams have no idea what the heck they're doing. * Constant product/mfg. shortages make it impossible to achieve goals. * Family run business but the family is never there. * Run mostly be people from Europe that have no clue. * TRAINING IS NON-EXISTENT HERE! * TSM Job presented as a Sales position but all you'll do is merchandise 99 9/10ths of the time. * VERY hard to move up unless your part of the "Cheerleader Team" * Company never want to hear what's wrong just want's smoke blown up their rears. I can go on and on but I'll close with.. Expect Re-Organizations going forward every 18 months.

Advice to Management

Get out of the office once and awhile. Hire people that know the business from the bottom up rather than the brown noses you have in place. Hold UPPER MGMT accountable rather than just the Field employees ! STOP LYING TO EMPLOYEES. Lay off Upper management that blames Field employees for all the dysfunction!!

Bonuses are based on Company performance rather than Individual.. therefore you can work your butt off and get the same pitiful bonus as the slacker does.
