signs in the mathematica output

Hello everybody! I have a problem in using the Mathematica Package which is probably a bit stupid but very annoying when you have long expressions.. 

When I "FullSimplify" big equations, in the output the negative sign is always put aside i.e. if I do something like:

FullSimplify[(1-s)(1-a)]

I obtain 

(-1+s)(-1+a).

Which is very confusing with long and tedius expressions. Does anybody know a way to solve this problem?

Thanks a lot for your help!!
