Take Responsibility for Your Results

Mars is a fantastic global company with the resources and structure to get things done. The culture is strong and centered around five guiding principles. It is also a complex and demanding organisation... expect tough challenges and high-demands but also opportunities for self-development and progression.

Stay away

If you are any kind of reasonable human being who has selfrespect please don’t get in.. they will demoralize you in 3-4 months..then will put some control strings and if not, you will receive p45 or your life will become impossible, and you will leave yourself.. if you stay, be prepaired to receive uncountable amount of stress, humiliation and disrespect. Bonus very small and taxable, or none, all benefits on your own expense, with tricky way to get them out of your wage later.

Pros

You will see like 70y old equipment working :)

Cons

Everything else

rude and disrespectful

managers are very rude, make you work like dogs and treat you like dogs too. if you are an agency worker then your not likely to get any benefits .agency workers are treated like 3rd class citizens and i felt very little and overworked. tax way too much off salaries.

Pros

eat as much chocolate on the job.

Cons

everything else.

A fast moving, challenging place to work

No two days alike with many opportunities to learn new skills and grow professionally and personally. Co-workers are of a high calibre, focussed and creative. Plenty of opportunity for foreign travel, although most trips comprise travel, hotels and factories with few opportunities to explore the country and culture, and being away often can impact on home life and work/life balance. Must managers are supportive and focussed on the development of their direct reports, and this is well rewarded in a good benefits package and environment.

Pros

Free chocolate!

Cons

Too much travel sometimes.

Great Company - Recommended

Supportive and people focused. A nice atmosphere with lots of training opportunities to build your career. You are expected to drive your own development which is a good thing. Progression for technical roles remains a challenge as most senior leaders are sales/marketing which can create frustrations.

Um dia no laboratorio

Quando existe monitorizacao de experiencias ou analises fisicas, o trabalho 'e realizado maioritariamente no laboratorio. A utilizacao do texturometro 'e tipica para a avaliacao da textura das amostras, por exemplo do chocolate com varias formulacoes, por um dado periodo de tempo. O que mais aprendo utilizando o texturometro 'e a capacidade que tem de aavaliar varios parametros nas amostras - a sua textura, que quanto dura 'e, o quanto adesiva, etc. O tratamento de dados extraidos do software 'e muito interessante, quando analisados ao longo do tempo - a mudanca da textura, como isso tem impacto no consumidor, e se o produto tem um tempo de prateleira requerido pela companhia. Por vezes a parte dificil deste trabalho 'e a monotonia no laboratorio, algumas analises nao sao tao dinamicas, mas 'e combatida pela constante pesquisa efetuada para relatorios e para ingredientes utilizados.

Cons

massagens, consultorio medico, cantina, terraco

Challening and Exciting

As Senior Sales Finance Analyst at Mars Chocolate UK, I have successfully supported the Finance Leadership Team on the area of Trade spend (promotions, JBP, ROI) and Growth/Contractual Spend to deliver on increasing our return on investment within the MMC and Impulse Channel.My current role also requires a high level of system skills, from periodic reconciliation of the 3 systems (FPPS, SAP and Mercury (Siebel) System) as well as the use of Excel to perform high level analysis and to create new reporting tools for the Sales Teams.I have demonstrated strong business partnering with the Sales Leadership Team in the area of trade spend, with particular focus on promotional planning, forecasting and scenario planning to challenge the numbers as well as provide financial support. With my strong skills in networking to build relationships with the 200+ Sales Teams for the MMC and Impulse Channels in the UK Chocolate business I have successfully added value to the Mars Chocolate UK Team.

Pros
