    I have been working at Mars full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits, 401k, dental, medical. Pay is decent

    Cons

    no balance between personal and work life. Team members opinion is not valued. No advancement unless you are related to someone in management. Team leads don't look out for the team at all! You can never really tell what days you will be working/off because it is ALWAYS subject to change!!

    I worked at Mars full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Awesome benefits - Company car/gas card, expense account, Ipad/computer, etc. Mars does a great job at letting you "be your own boss", which allows you to manage your territory however you want. As long as you're working towards the goal, the freedom is unparalleled.

    Cons

    Too many policies that is starting to take freedom out of the position. The company is starting to stray away from five principles, which was one of the reasons I signed on. Let the reps sell...simple as that.

    Advice to Management

    Hiring management needs to be a lengthier process. Had two managers recently that were some of the worst I've ever had. One needed to have his morals severely checked, and the other was a spineless twerp. Hire managers for the employees, not corporate leaders.

    Pros

    Privately held company that trickles down the family values and is lived by most associates. Great benefits and pay. Very good people that work within the global company.

    Cons

    Big company that is slow to move to capture success in the market. Sometimes it takes forever to move projects ahead or execute.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits and great pay. They have a great bonus plan . Three weeks vacation the day you are hired. Not a bad schedule.

    Cons

    In order to move up at the fort Smith site you have to buddy up with someone in management. Advancements are not based on ability to do a job right, more along the lines of how well you are liked by your peers. Very unprofessional

    Advice to Management

    Stop running the company based on the buddy system and advance the people who have the knowledge of how to efficiently repair the equipment. Your numbers will increase like the owners want them to

    Advice to Management

    Restructure!!
