Meet Han Lee, one of our Interns from Redmond, WA. During Han's internship he has learned a tremendous amount through the conversations he has had with different people, teams, and backgrounds within the organisation. “The open collaborative culture and the emphasis on relationship building has made it easy to talk with so many people and gain insight on the company, the amazing work that’s being done, and valuable information for my main project this summer” For Han, the Mars internship stood out “due to its excellent culture, the focus on applying the Five Principles, and the fact that it’s a global company with brands everyone knows and loves”.

"You may have noticed that at Mars, we refer to everyone who works with us as Associates! But why is that, I hear you ask? The Associate model is central to who we are; our people don't work for us, they work with us. This relationship is built on respect, dignity, and trust - and that goes both ways! #MarsCareers #TomorrowStartsToday #ProudlyMars
One of our new Associates Harriet Oppong made a career switch and joined Mars as a Health, Safety & Environment (HSE) Manager.

We recently spent the afternoon speaking with Amy Dejong, our Senior Process Development Engineer on the Breakthrough Technology team in Chicago. As a former Mars summer intern, Amy now supports the intern program and encourages candidates to “take advantage of new opportunities, even if they are outside of your comfort zone and to get involved in something outside of your specific role deliverables”. As a leader of our Women of R&D Resource Group, Amy was able to develop and practice her leadership skills and meet new friends.

Meet Clemence de Fromont, one of our Associates in Hacketstown NJ, who is a real driving force for meaningful change! Clemence, who has been at Mars for 7 years, rejoined the Mars family straight out of college after doing 2 summer internships with us! "Mars has been the only company I’ve worked for, and I don’t want to work for any other company! The culture and the people appeal to me, it just feels like one big global community! Everyone is friendly and always, and I mean always willing to help. As an intern, I never wanted to bother any full-time Associates, but they always took the time to help and I was shocked; I have been able to build a network and community and I love the people I work with every day. We don’t always just talk about work; we talk about our personal lives and create friendships outside of work!" Thank you for being you Clemence, never change! #MarsCareers #ProudlyMars #TomorrowStartsToday
"I’ve been at Mars almost 2 years – time flies when you’re having fun!" says Amilia, one of our amazing Associates in Canada, and one of our Senior Key Account Managers in Bolton, for Pet Nutrition! "I joined during the pandemic so everything was virtual, but Associates went above and beyond to make me feel part of the team. Mars’ strong culture was apparent even virtually! My fiancé and I got a puppy during the pandemic; she just turned two over the weekend and she is the best dog I could have ever dreamed of! We also transitioned from a downtown condo to a house outside the city so that our dog could have her own backyard; we have been very busy during Covid! I am very happy about my decision to join Mars. I have learned and developed so much, both personally and professionally. I am excited for my future here at Mars and can’t wait to see where I am in 5 years! Thank you for being part of our global community Amilia! #MarsCareers #TomorrowStartsToday #ProudlyMars
