Pros

As a student employee, the starting pay per hour is nice. The factory is also open 24/7 so they work around your school schedule if you live locally.

Cons

The plant is very hot, very dusty, requires physical labor, and the hours are inconsistent. If you work here as a student try, to get scheduled in the Packing dept. Students get no benefits and are very expendable.

Advice to Management

Managment is pretty much a joke.

    Pros

    Say what you want about the location, but the people it attracts are earnest, down to earth, hardworking, and fun. People into bling and superficial BS won't spend much time in Battle Creek. The company has a great portfolio of brands and is marketing oriented. If you are willing to ride out the rough patches, you can have a good career.

    Cons

    They are in a tough spot right now. Cereal is a breakfast food for the Western world and the populations are declining in those countries. They will have to figure out what they are going to market in places like Africa where the population is growing. When business results head south, a mass talent exodus follows, meaning you are left with less talented folks to try and find your way out of the darkness. It can get very dark in Battle Creek. Within the last 13 years (prior to a good run), the company actually considered selling off the cereal business. Crazy? That's how dark it can get in the Creek.

    Advice to Management

    Innovate, market, figure out how to sell in the growing countries. Cutting costs only goes so far, you can either slowly become a smaller, profitable company, or you can fight for growth, but that takes courage and potentially missing numbers with the street. But the other choice is surrender to a slow death.

    Pros

    Traveling. Independence. Work day is usually over by 5 or 6pm during the week. Free cookies and crackers. Co-workers (when you get to actually work with them).

    Cons

    Communication from TM's and DTM is very poor at times. Working odd hours on Saturdays. No time for advanced training for movement in the company because of working independently and busy, long hours. Auto reimbursement program, lots of miles put on your own vehicle.

    Advice to Management

    Communication, communication. Take the time to train the willing it will pay off for the company in the long run.
