Compensation good but very poor with diversity
Infrastructure Lead (Former Employee), New JerseyMarch 15, 2013
Pros: compensation for 40 hour week
Cons: diversity very poor
Compensation is good if you don't have to work a 60 hour week - make certain you check on the "real" hours expected to work per week.
Diversity is very poor at this company hence if you are a woman, minority, or older worker expect trouble with advancing your career at this company.
Promotions are very political, rarely Merit based.

Fun workplace with lots of responsabilities
FINANCIAL CONTROLLER (Former Employee), Bamako/MaliFebruary 13, 2013
Pros: lots of responsabilities and communication with business units
Cons: long hours of work, especially at the end of month
I usually had a very busy day at work with a lot of pressure when I worked with the Group Office. I learned how to work with different cultures when I traveled to another affiliate to work with other colleagues of different countries. I learned how to manage people when I supervised 5 people in the departement. I helped the Manager in decision making. – more... The most difficult of the job was when I stayed at work over midnight every end month to prepare the financial statement for the Central Bank and for the Group Office. However the enjoyable part of my job was the sharing experience, And the making decision with the Manager. – less

Contracted Senior Fixed Asset Accountant
Contracted Senior Fixed Asset Accountant (Current Employee), Hackettstown, NJJanuary 14, 2013
Mars Inc. as a whole is a great company to work for. However, I am a contracted employee as I have been contracting for a while. I supervise the Fixed Asset process as it exists today. The reason I am a contractor is because Finance is being centralized to Chicago.

Great place working overnight with a great team
Floor Maitenance (Current Employee), Aberdeen, MDNovember 6, 2012
A typical day for me at mars starts out with me gathering all my supplies. Based on the tasks for the night I begin to plan my course of action. I have learned time management and decision making is very important when your working in this environment. Management is very easy to get along with and quickly learned they could trust me to get the job done. – more... Though I an the only Floor maintenance personnel at the store. I do have some coworkers who stock the isles. occasionally I must work around them but this has never been a problem. The hardest part of the job would be working overnight. The thing I like most about Mars is the sense of accomplishment at the end of a shift. – less

Operator (Former Employee), Earth City, MOAugust 14, 2012
Pros: great people, work that i liked
Cons: long days, low money
I was the guy that covered for the sick operators so everyday was different for me because I was always doing something different. I leaned the entire warehouse and got very good at working fast in new areas though out the day. Hardest part of the job was never having an easy part of the day becasue I was always put in the areas that were behind to – more... help catch them up but the best part was always being on a different kind of machine everyday. – less

Project Cementing Engineer II (Current Employee), HASSI MASSAOUDJuly 11, 2012
Pros: free breakfast, lunch and diner, jam for sport, healthcare
Cons: management
* I enjoy coming to work with people that I get around, I have a good time with. I have to prepare proposals using BJ cement engineer softwares with estimate cost for assigned customer, attend daily meeting with customer, participate and discuss the cement job, maintain close liaison with field service and lab personal.
* I was able to really develop – more... my leadership skills.
*I held all responsibility for getting this job completed on time, I did this in most cases by appealing to my team mates.
* on several occasions I have had to deal with some irate customer, I do my best to be professional and not get my emotion involved.
* having an weekly meeting where we can talk about any pressing tasks or duties that the team should focus on, it's just nice to have a forum where every one can talk about their status on their role and if they need help, can ask for it from others who might have some extra time. – less
