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 Management

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