    I have been working at Wrigley full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company's culture is great -- they respect work/life balance, and care about the workplace being more than a cogs serving their purpose in a big machine. They take time to have fun, and more importantly to talk to you about what you want to do. It's not perfect but they try.

    Cons

    Bonuses are still archaically tied to market performance factors that are often not under any associate's control. It would be nice to see pay and bonuses tied to something that would actually motivate employees -- a performance goal that they can affect.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent -- there are lots of market forces that worry employees (such as the current consumer trend moving away from sugary treats) and nobody seems to want to openly discuss our strategy for adapting to this.

    Help focus the organization on setting up for the long term; continue to treat all employees with respect and honor their work life balance.
