    I worked at Mars full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Big company, great brands, can move to different countries, good salary, good framework for people development, great if you join as management trainee

    Cons

    Very political and personally driven organization, a lot more is decided at the water cooler than at the table in a meeting, too much power of HR, a lot slower career progress if you are not a management trainee

    Advice to Management

    Look at all people in the same way, evaluate people by results and not (only) their network
