    2. 3.0
      Former Employee, more than 3 years

      Good company structure yet diluted interpretation of KPIs in Australia

      May 19, 2021 - Industrial Engineer

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Learning opportunities are abundant and rather robust business structure. Mars University is great for anyone willing to learn (full of real practical learnings) Leadership team (LT) is great! Smart, caring, and accountable senior managers. Free goods every 3 weeks.

      Cons

      Bossy middle managers (FMT) with minimal help on onboarding and unreasonable work expectations - primarily promoted team managers and etc with minimal academic knowledge and degrees. Happy to blame plant workers for anything and then find ways to reduce them. Full of young graduates who never worked in other firms and are happy to report everything to middle managers in hope of securing a permanent position. Often difficult to work with as they don’t understand thinking outside the box! Never been exposed to anything else but Mars ways of working. Politicised mindset and teaming! HR is only managers puppet and would not hesitate to intimidate you bottom line. Ombudsman is even worse than HR so forget about it.
