    I have been working at Kellogg Company (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    good benefits , great people , long term employees

    Cons

    top heavy way to many managers and new ones added daily, all trying to make there mark regardless of the benefit to the company, lots of wasteful spending

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    learn your business from the bottom up , don't rely on the chain of managers to keep you informed

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers and are willing to work as a team. We all look out for each other safety. Good benefit.

    Cons

    Management at all levels, all the way to the top
    This company used to be employee driven, now it is greed at the top

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be fair, compromise, share the wealth. Take the time and help with the safety in the plant. Let's make the cereal in the USA NOT Mexico.

    I worked at Kellogg Company full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Really good people. They have great training programs. High integrity to do the right thing. Open environment for sharing of ideas etc. Compensation was competitive for roles. Generally work life balance if fair. Over time this has shifted to more work less family time. it really depends on which leader is in place.

    Cons

    Budgets tend to be lean. Also if you are not of the good old boy network you were overlooked despite favorable business results. Living in Battle Creek is tough if you are use to a more metropolitan area. Also if you are a person of color it is very difficult to be fully accepted by the community. They talk about developing their people but overall they develop few stars. This is evident in their lack of bench talent.

    Current Employee - Part Time Merchandiser

    I have been working at Kellogg Company part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    As a merchandiser, the job is really easy. It's a matter of rotating products by date and making sure the displays look nice. The other Kellogg employees are very nice and welcoming to those just coming on board. Also, extremely flexible hours especially if you're in school and it pays decent for a job that doesn't require experience. At first, all the products look the same but it'll get easier about a month in

    Cons

    The days can be extremely long & exhausting depending on how efficient you work especially if the truck load comes in. Some stores you go to, you may be dealing with miserable employees/customers which makes the job even more stressful. Nearly impossible to make other plans (I.e get a second job) since your schedule is given to you the night before or day of. Not much room for growth/advancement
