    Kellogg offers great pay and benefits. As long as you are willing to work hard this company will take care of you. Kellogg has come a long way with employee personal development in the past few years. I am very proud to work for Kellogg.

    I have been working at Kellogg Company full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Kellogg has a fantastic history with a culture and set of values that really do guide how we do business. We are very much focused on the customer and the consumer and creating the best brands and products for them. The company is also very focused on the community (fundraising campaigns, end hunger and sustainable farming initiatives and company sponsored volunteer opportunities). I love working here and have been very fortunate to be given many significant opportunities to develop and grow.

    Cons

    I think that work/life balance is a bit of a challenge, but let's be real- great companies expect a lot from their employees, and I don't think the expectations are out of line with what you would find at any company of this caliber. Also, the leadership is very aware of this issue and honestly makes an effort to correct/address it. We have fun events scheduled throughout the year, summer hours (Friday afternoons off), and work-from-home opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to recognize, invest in, and develop talent- and at all levels. It creates loyal, enthusiastic, hard-working employees!

    Pros

    Opportunities to grow and develop yourself and your career; Flexibility in ways of working - new work anywhere program supported by leadership; Harworkers are recognized; Leadership support individual goals as well as company goals; Best place I have worked and hope to stay here for a while.

    Cons

    In some functions people do have to work long hours at times - leadership are trying to address with various schemes and initiatives. More opportunities to make employees feel engaged - some areas do this well, some not so well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in training and development. On the job training is great but it would be good to see some programs for employees and not just leadership. Great leadership development for those at the top.
