    I have been working at Mars full-time

    Pros

    Strong culture Great managers Clear opportunities to own your work Petcare/Mars Wrigley are the biggest units and their teams (and opportunities) are based in melbourne

    Cons

    Graduate program rotations managed poorly Sales and marketimg graduate program is for sales only (marketing is highly unlikely due to lack of entry level marketing roles) Likely rotations in 2 year program are Field sales rep in year 1 and Vendor Replenishment planner in year 2 Well paid when you first enter the company as a grad but after completing program you will struggle with getting paid at the same level as non graduates doing the same role
