    Pros

    company was great to get professional career started

    Cons

    Upper management (CEO's) have no clue how to run the business properly and are making decisions that will lead to the demise of the company, make short term decisions without realizing long term effects

    Advice to Management

    get in the trenches and learn how to run the business and gain more profit for the long term, do not make knee jerk decisions

    Pros

    cant think of any.

    Cons

    was hired as a warehouse manager and 7 months later Kellogg has closed all 39 DC's in North America. Now it makes since as to why they would not train me on anything. I was not even shown how to use the computer program. I had to figure it all out my self. Now I know why!!!

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

    Pros

    Freedom of a boss looking over your shoulder. Faster you work, the faster you are done with your day of work.

    Cons

    No payment for mileage. They will lie to you if they can. They order items that will not go to the shelf. Merchandising is being dissolved anyway so none of this review is valid for future employees in merchandising.

    Advice to Management

    I think you figured out it isn't a good company by now.

    Pros

    My schedule use to be some what flexible.

    Cons

    In the last year Kellogg has made many cuts trying to get the company to 18% profit. now they are laying off thousand of workers as they make the move to put all of their products in the grocery stores warehouses.. don"t bother applying here, even if they were hiring.. this has become a very high pressure job in the last few years and would not recommend to anyone!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Nothing nice to say, What happened to K values?????

    I worked at Kellogg Company full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great health benefits. But, other than that, only good thing about this company is being able to put it on your resume when you leave. And trust me, leave.

    Cons

    The snacks team is treated as the red headed step child of the company. Oh, and by he way, they just got rid of the entire DSD team, so almost all of them will be gone by August. When I was there, I was one of the top Reps, and was kind of left alone. So, I am not a scorned ex employee, just someone who wasted some of my best years there, and regrets not leaving sooner. The company cares absolutely nothing about their customers (in this case the grocery stores that carry their products), and would constantly force product upon them to chase numbers for Wall Street. They treat their employees horribly (on this team), and couldn't care less about your work life balance. I could go on, but it's not worth anymore of my time and they are not worth yours. Run, don't walk, away, unless you're interested in an office job with them. That would probably be completely different.

    Advice to Management

    You guys should probably leave, also, while there are still life rafts to jump on. This ship is sinking.

    Pros

    decent pay and benfits, 50-60k range

    Cons

    unrealistic sales goals backed by intense pressure to try to hit those numbers, followed up with forced shipments of un-needed product which destroys relationships at store level. Add to that, merchandising support is always understaffed forcing the rep to cover the difference making for long days and weeks and a very unhealthy work/life balance. Add to that, they just announced layoffs of the entire sales and distribution workforce. Add to that, they lied in the press release saying that it would affect "about" 1,200 full time workers, when in fact,the number is over 5,000 and if you include part-time workers(who are part-time because of Obamacare), the number is over 7,000. Thanks Kellogg for your K-Values!

    Advice to Management

    they don't listen so why bother

    Pros

    Kelloggs offers marketing leading wages and benefits.

    Cons

    Kelloggs is struggling in an ever demanding market place, cereal consumption is down, cookie / Cracker is at a slow decline as well. With this being said, our current Senior Leadership does not have the knowledge to get us out of this downward spiral. Cutting departments, like the Supply Chain is not the answer. Kelloggs is not the company is used to be, I would suggest to anyone, who enters this company, be cautious, as I don't see the Cookie /Cracker DSD side of the business being around much longer

    Advice to Management

    W. K. Kellogg once said "invest in your people..." Go back to the basics, higher and promote individuals who understand the CPU business. Stop being a resume building company and create some stability with your Senior Leadership.
