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

    Pros

    The pros of the company are: senior leadership support in career development, flexible scheduling, tuition reimbursement, community involvement.

    Cons

    The cons involve off shore HR and IT folks that do not have the knowledge and expertise to handle day to day business tasks or support employees that need personal assistance. Very difficult to communicate for process related issues.

    Advice to Management

    Work with employees that understand the business before making decisions to outsource. Most issues with excessive budget spending and inefficiencies could be addressed by front line management without making company wide cuts.

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

    Pros

    Good company to grow with IF you are willing to relocate.

    Cons

    The expectations outweigh the resources. Leadership wants the customer to be serviced, however they cut the headcount and the equipment to make this successful. Just a very frustrating situation. Starting out short everyday.

    Advice to Management

    Become more connected with reality. work alongside the lower workers and see where the issues are before you start cutting resources and headcount. Kellogg's has only been showing a profit by making cuts. The business is not growing. It is not growing because of poor business decisions. ie - Constantly changing the sales incentive model. If a sales rep is selling and growing the profits, why would you put them on salary and cap them?
