    "Used to be a great place to work before Mars acquired it and changed the leadership team."

    Pros

    Great brands, colleagues, compensation package and benefits. People are nice, cooperative and used to be free of politics so you could really enjoy your work.

    Cons

    For 100+ years this company was run by the Wrigley family and by long-term associates that new the category really well. Mars is no doubt another great company but the leadership team they have put in place at Wrigley unfortunately does not have a clue and are making strategic and organizational changes that don't make much sense.

    Advice to Management

    Be a bit more humble and listen to what the people who have been there for a while have to say. To the VP level, be less focused on just trying to keep your jobs and speak your mind and say the things you have to say, not just, "yes, sir."

    Pros

    As an intern, I was trusted to take ownership of some great variety of projects and was managed and guided through them well. Management helped me maintain balance in learning / training and adding value. The internship program also provided an opportunity to learn about the company and get involved with the social aspect of being a Wrigley employee - be it meeting Duke Petrovich, volunteering, or going to a Cubs game. The office environment was also open, friendly, and collaborative. In general, it was fun working with candy products... lots of free candy!

    Cons

    Unfortunately, despite my good performance, there was not an opportunity to become a full-time employee... this may have just been timing. While it presented great opportunities, Wrigley was also going through some challenges post Mars acquisition in streamlining Mars / Wrigley efforts into one company, much like any company would at such a time.
