“There are no boundaries to what you can achieve. You are able to learn and grow and, generally, the only thing that limits you is you,” says one employee at this food and beverage giant.

 

According to another worker: “Even the sky isn’t the limit at Mars. If you can dream it, think it, or invent it, Mars embraces your uniqueness and talents. There is structure when it comes to quality and safety but at Mars you don’t feel like you are operating within a box and bound by the limits and boundaries of the structure. Innovation and creativity are culturally accepted. It is often difficult to distinguish between the managers and the hourly associates in meetings and brainstorming sessions. Everyone has a voice and is encouraged to provide their thoughts and ideas. You really feel like you are part of the bigger picture and not just a number.”
