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

Pros

Great brands. Down to earth people that you work with every day. Flexibiliity to do your job. Workers have high integrity.

Cons

Expect to work 24/7 tho that is still not enough. Compensation is sub-par to peer companies. Company always comes first. Feeding frenzy each month to make unrealistic numbers. Planning goes out the window.

Advice to Management

Listen to the annual employee surveys. Results get worse every year due to talk but no action.

    Pros

    Salary is comparable to other companies; you will be expected to work weekends and longer than 9 hour days. Insurance is acceptable, however, the union employees receive the same benefits for free.

    Cons

    It is completely driven by who you know rather than what you know. Your yearly reviews are based on what your direct reports think of you rather than your overall performance, which means you must turn the other cheek at times to keep everyone happy.

    Advice to Management

    As a multi billion dollar company, focus more on talent and less on relationships when promoting someone. Cereal is declining, focus on the business as a whole and be consistent with everyone.

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

    Pros

    Overall, there is a consistent positive work environment and attitude across employees. We share a sense of pride in our product line(who else dominates a store aisle), strong brands, global footprint, and more than 100 year heritage (and being founded as one of the first health foods). There is also a strong sense that despite our 100 year heritage, there is enorrmous potential to grow, particularly in emerging markets.

    Cons

    At times the environment is too relationship oriented, where you feel you need strong connections to get ahead. Despite being a $13 billion company, we are relatively unsophisticated in terms of processes and IT infrastructure, and sometimes overly short term, financially biased.
