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

    Pros

    So happy with the company despite being a apprentice we are treated equally like other engineers, which are always willing to help, we also have lots of responsibility with doing jobs instead of just standing back and watching.

    Cons

    Just a old site, could do with some refurbishment

    Advice to Management

    Nothing

    I have been working at Mars full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great work life balance
    Live by the principals they talk about - they actually do follow them
    Good people work here
    Competitive salary
    Personal development a big focus
    Allow movement within various areas, you don't have to be a specialist and can apply for roles outside of your comfort zone

    Cons

    People get away with poor quality work or not working very hard, very little consequences if something goes wrong, or doesn't work or someone does lots of things wrong
    Within IT they don't have specialist doing jobs that require specialists, so it isn't always done the right way

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to people not doing a good job, everyone else has to carry them
