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

Pros

The company pays very very well and has great benefits. A lot of very talented people. Although most of the business is domestic, it is working on becoming an international company and there is opportunity to interact with different cultures.

Cons

There's some thing about Kellogg's that seems to stifle creativity. Much of what is done is done in a committee format and there's not much here to make your own mark, especially in corporate Kellogg. There is also a glass ceiling between the senior managers position and a directors position. Kellogg seems to prefer to bring people from the outside for these slots. There are lots of opportunities to make lateral moves into different functions, but very difficult to move up. Kellogg also loves to use flowery phrases and ambiguous sentences.

Advice to Management

Provide clear avenues for advancement. Keep things simple, say what you mean without resorting to ambiguous catch phrases. Learn to fully utilize the talent you have in Battle Creek.

    I have been working at Kellogg Company full-time (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 Management

    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.

    I worked at Kellogg Company as an intern (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 Management

    Managment is pretty much a joke.
