    I worked at Kellogg Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There wasn't any left here

    Cons

    CEO has torn the organization into pieces constantly changing direction,demoralizing employees,unable to bring about new exciting innovation to compete with market trends,setting budgets that are so aggressive that the lousy products we have anymore will never be able to achieve the goals.

    Advice to Management

    CEO finally resigns but only after he destroys the company to the point that it would be better to sell it to someone else who cares than try to put this train wreck back together again.Good Luck to the new CEO you are really going to need it.

    I have been working at Kellogg Company (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay and Benefits. Literally the only good thing going for production jobs.

    Cons

    Expect to live here! 7 day 8 hour shifts a week with a 1 mandatory 16 hour shift every week. The mandatory overtime varies every week, so it's impossible to plan. Terrible management, and typical corporate greed ruining the company. As the little saying goes here, you sign the agreement for the job, your signing your soul to Kellogg's.

    Advice to Management

    Start listening to you employees. The experts that work the lines everyday, can give lots of advice on cost saving and proficiency updates. Personally have given ideas and every one has been turned anh

    I have been working at Kellogg Company full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pay, benefits and 401k match

    Cons

    You basically sold your self to Kelloggs, you can be forced to work 16 hour days on a moment's notice, 7 days a week. Oh, lets not forget about realigning you to a different shift,any way to convience the company from hiring. Might as well forget about the family life. Major lack of compassion for the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people if you truly want to succeed! Stop lying about everything!

    I worked at Kellogg Company (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Teamster job, but they still closed the doors. Good equipment and facilities.

    Cons

    All warehouses and distribution cut out of Kellogg's business plan. More than 5000 sales, merchandisers warehouse and drivers out of work.

    Advice to Management

    sorry you lost your jobs, too. Executives and bakery is all that remains.

    I worked at Kellogg Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits and back then we got a car. I hear they took that away.

    Cons

    NO work life balance! Its 12-14 hour days sometimes 6 or 7 days a week if they don't have enough merchandising help. When a merchandiser calls in sick you fill in for them, no pay, no overtime!

    Advice to Management

    Realize that your employees have a life! Quit forcing in more items on the order. The stores don't like it and take it out on the Territory Managers! Here's a big one.. More variable labor hours! We need help!

    Pros

    Grrreat pay and the location was beautiful......

    Cons

    Classic case of the inmates running the asylum. The union dictates everything here and sadly upper management has adapted it's hostility as best practice. Also, when you run to failure you run to failure.....

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the politics and put the union in check.
