I have been working at Kellogg Company part-time for more than a year

Pros

Stable Industry, accessible to anyone interested. Lots of good brands insure that Kellogg will be around for a long time, no matter what the economy does.

Cons

Extremely sales oriented (to the detriment of the other business functions), little employee development or career development. Corporate strategy not communicated to lower level employees. Communication in general is not very good across business functions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop letting Wall Street investors dictate your performance metrics. Hold your field network accountable. Develop your all your employees, not just the select few who are on the fast track to management.

    Current Employee - Food Technologist in Battle Creek, MI

    I have been working at Kellogg Company full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Fortune 500 company in an stable category. Great people to work with and good work environment. You learn a lot and have some latitude on your hours if you deliver.

    Cons

    Moving is difficult, work load is heavy and sometimes it seems you are the only one getting your project done. Priorities shuffle and change by the week, sometimes the work relevance is not clear.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make decisions, and let people decide, a lot of effort is wasted by not deciding in a timely fashion. Don't let the financial analysts that don't understand the business run the company.

    Former Employee - Student Intern  in  Memphis, TN
    Former Employee - Student Intern in Memphis, TN

    I worked at Kellogg Company as an intern for more than 3 years

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Managment is pretty much a joke.

    No opinion of CEO
