Pros

MARS is fully focused on shopper marketing. If you're passionate about the shopper & retail, then this is a great place to be. Because of its focus, the company is "in tune" with the marketplace and is very fast to adapt to change. The company values ideas and entrepreneurial thinking and has a warm, "family" feel to it.

Cons

If you have a hard time working in an environment where change happens, then this is probably not going to be the place for you.

Advice to Management

Always keep the shopper at the center even as you expand into new services. It's your strength.

    I have been working at The Mars Agency full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The entrepreneurial culture means that if you have an idea, you get to try it out. The relatively small size means you get to do meaningful work where you can see the connection to the overall goals of the company, and you have continuous exposure to top leaders. The company is a leader in Shopper Marketing; no better place to learn or hone those skills.

    Cons

    There is not a lot of structure for training and career development -- you have to be assertive about setting and achieving your goals, but the rewards are there when you are willing to do that work. Salaries, benefits, and time off are on the low side, but still competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to look for ways to attract top talent -- through competitive salaries and benefits and by increasing opportunities for career planning and development.

    Pros

    Opportunity to work with great clients! They also started a wellness program- which in theory is great if you're one of the few lucky enough to have a manageable work load.

    Cons

    Very poor systems and processes in place with huge inefficiencies. Very top heavy in managers-everyone is a manager and thus very few worker bees actually doing the work load of 2 at all hours of the day. High employee turn-over and poor systems/management means taking one step forward and three steps back......consistently! Very frustrating for those who care about the quality work that the client deserves.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and realize you can't keep on doing the same old thing and expect different results. Great people are leaving the company consistently- something is wrong.
