    My experience at Kellogg has been very fulfilling.

    Current Employee - IT Intern  in  Grand Rapids, MI
    Current Employee - IT Intern in Grand Rapids, MI

    I have been working at Kellogg Company as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    The opportunities for developing my skills, the people who are fun to talk to, and the impact on people, employees and consumers alike, that you feel you have control over, all make the job seem quite fulfilling.

    Cons

    Somewhat thrown into the job, yet once up to speed, I never quite felt I was put to my full potential.

    I have been working at Kellogg Company as an intern

    Pros

    decent pay, flexible work hours, nice people, good environment

    Cons

    difficult to get help, can be unstructured

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    structure the internship program more, have more help available. Sometimes the attitude is poor because the business is struggling. Have a better training program for interns. I was often given projects with little direction, and then struggled to receive help.

    I have been working at Kellogg Company full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are average IT work life balance is good. Company is always trying to improve

    Cons

    Limited or very little career growth. Kellogg much rather hire from the outside than promote within.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on promoting within in IT and protect the people you want to keep. Be upfront and honest with the office moves and job reductions instead of creating mass hysteria.
