Used to be a great company to work at but now I'm probably better off not being there.

Pros

Good annual salary - pay for overtime at the lower salaried levels.

Cons

You need an armored vest to survive the back stabbing. Be ready to sign on for the program of the month / year and know when it has gone out of style. Don't plan on a long stay with this company they have a history of hiring and then about every 6 - 10 years a big across the board downsizing. It becomes who you know not what you know that matters.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Drop the feel good management program of the month and hire people that know how to manage and lead.

    Pros

    Kellogg pays well for the food industry. You are thrust into learning allot of skills quickly.

    Cons

    The plant runs 24/7. For managers there is a mandated 12 hour shift which is more like 13.5-14 hrs in reality. You have different days off on different weeks. The amount of work expected is high and the tools to accomplish the goals are low. The union is ugly to deal with, HR will not back you and preventive maintenance is very ineffective. Also, how to administer the contract is always difficult since the contract is vague and the amount of "prior practices" is large, confusing and unwritten.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about your plant level managers and forget the top down management style. Hourly folks stay because of the high wages but you loose out with the high turnover of management.

    Pros

    Great pay. Great Benefits! First job I've ever had where it is a pleasure to come to work & not dread it. Overall good place to work.

    Cons

    Hard to get time off to handle personal business. Poor scheduling. My plant was a victim of Project K. Cold way of handling that situation.
