    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Kellogg Company as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    -Above average pay
    -Opportunity to work on many different projects
    -Raises easy to come by
    -Early leave on Fridays
    -No micro-managing

    Cons

    -Office is completely run based on who you know, not what you know
    -Contracted workers will NEVER have the opportunity to become full-time Kellogg employees
    -Expected to be available to upper management 24/7
    -No paid time off or paid sick days for contracted employees
    -Expected to come in on days when the office is considered closed, and upper management is not showing up
    -People in specific roles are under utilized, while employees who are at higher levels, and have no idea what they are doing or how to communicate with level 1, 2, and 3 employees are given a mulititude of projects that they have no business being on.
    -Under-staffed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think if you better utlized the people you have, and stop laying off people without telling them until their last day, the employee moral would be better. Everyone is constantly afraid to lose their job, and because of this nobody will help anyone out, and there is no loyalty in the office. Since you are laying off 15-20 people at a time, and being dishonest about what is going on, nobody wants to be there. The people who did enjoy their job left because they wanted to get out before they got laid off too. You will not have any employees within the year if practices like this keep happening.
