    Pros

    Being in the field, independent work. That's honestly the only positive. Decent pay but with the hours worked your making minimum wage.

    Cons

    No work life balance, rude managers. Manager threatens jobs at every meeting. Management sneaks in product to stores and make you deal with it.

    I have been working at Kellogg Company full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Well to start off I am having a hard time coming up with a "20 word minimum" but I will say that if you are willing to give up your soul you can get cereal for $1.50 a box. There that is as much as I can say.....

    Cons

    Kellogg has in my opinion lost their reputation as being a great company to work for. The sacrifices greatly outweigh the bennifits. I am unsure of the reasoning behind Kelloggs cost cuttings but I am sure in order to maintain a fortune 500 company you must have a loyal, comitfelt nd an energetic work force behind it. When you sacrifice your employees wellbeing for a bottom line that looks good on paper this quarter you will end up paying for it tenfold. There is an ideology of moving out the old workforce that was a part of the "good old days at Kellogg " team and replace them with the "starving fresh out of college" team that is willing to work for less. Much of the "upper management" is no being burdened with these financial cost cutting tactics. If my grandfather was to run Kellogg he would say fix what needs to be fixed, don't go buy new you can't afford it... I.e. GBS. I hate to say it but I feel as though I am on a sinking ship. Please know this has not always been the way myself and many of my coworkers have felt. Kellogg was once a great company to work for. But they will provide you with the necessary equipment to keep you tethered to them (computer and phone ). But don't forget, that is Kelloggs property any personal activity is grounds for termination. I hope when seeking out your future employer you have the ability to sift thru the PR departments 5star bandage they are trying to put on this wound. Remember good news travels fast bad news travels even faster. Kellogg has a great workforce but apparently the inability to recognize it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thank you or great job goes a long way!! Or a simple note of appreciation. It wasn't broke quit trying to fix it.

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

    Pros

    Strong salary, decent amount of time off, great tuition reimbursement policy, exciting products, company store for employees, growth opportunities within the company.

    Cons

    Could adapt a more flexible work-life balance program. Employees have the ability to work remotely or from home, but that is often not encouraged. Flexible work schedules like compressed work week are also not encouraged. With this being a large company, it often experiences re-orgs to keep up with a changing environment. This can be stressful for it's employees. They could also have a better on-boarding program. Other parts of the company may have a stronger program, but for the positions I have experienced, the onboarding/training programs were lacking. They are also very excel heavy in reporting, and this allows for much human error. They need to adapt more automated processes, through the use of IT systems.

    Former Employee - Part Time Merchandiser in Lubbock, TX

    I worked at Kellogg Company part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    the hours were extremely flexible, team was very kind and understanding, great work environment, and I always loved their products which my supervisor would sometimes let me take home credited products due to broken or smashed boxes.

    Cons

    I sometimes had to work seven days a week for only two hours each day which was costing more in gas than I was earning. Other times I worked one day for ten hours it just depends really.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I prefer a more certain work schedule. I do not care how long I work each day I just want to know at least a week ahead of time so I could have planned my study time better.

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    The work life balance can be demanding at times. I would like to see more individual recognition programs.
