        -All Mars businesses share the same principles-based decision making backed by individual business unit Purpose statements. -Plenty of opportunities to learn by doing and an intentional framework to help Associates build the experiences they need to grow into the careers they aspire to. -High level of freedom rooted in high expectation of personal responsibility. -Brands and corporate responsibility you can be proud of. -Fairly flat organizational structure without strong hierarchy which strives to ensure all voices are heard. -Good balance of female and historically underrepresented groups in leadership positions with aspirations and targets to continue to add more. -Plenty of opportunities to bring your whole self to work, express who you are, and explore/share personal interests. -Many flexible location roles that allow hybrid office/home work. -Lots of opportunities to work with people and teams all over the world and move regionally or internationally if desired.


        -Fast-paced and large volume of workstreams can be challenging to balance for individuals younger with less career experience. -Constantly changing organizational structure and high rate of internal mobility means people rarely build deep and long-time experience in any single role or function. -Expectations for individuals to self-serve for HR/P&O and many administrative tasks. This includes accessing help with the self-service systems leading to a sense of being "on your own" and adding significant additional time to navigate.

        This is good to hear, so thank you for sharing. It’s important to us that our Associates feel supported – and we’re 100% committed to their wellbeing and development. If you’d like to share any more feedback, or recommend ways in which we can further improve the Associate experience, please get in touch with your People and Organization team. Thanks again!
