    I have been working at Kellogg Company full-time

    Pros

    Opportunity - The management I've experienced has been fantastic. I've had two managers who both have given me ample responsibility and freedom to run with my project how I see fit.

    People - I love the people I work with. On my (larger) team, no one takes themselves too seriously. It's quite a fun time.

    Culture - The casual, family culture still lives on. I can wear the clothes I work best in to work, I'm not micro-managed, I get free cereal and I work for a company that aims to continually embed strong values that honor integrity and character.

    Flexibility - The work flexibility is fantastic. I can work from home if I need to or head out of the office a few hours early if needed, and it's no big deal as long as I'm getting my work done, putting my hours in and showing good results.

    Cons

    Work / Life Balance can sometimes be tough depending on your position and workload, but the flexibility is nice.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to strive towards transparency and humbleness. Don't take yourself too seriously. Continue to educate every department on the true status of the company and give praise where praise is do.

    Pros

    Good pay. You make the same amount of money as a upper senior person after two years of service.

    Cons

    Off when the job is done. There is no specific time you get off of work. Therefore, family time is difficult to schedule.

    I worked at Kellogg Company as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It was a wonderful place to work, and they had a welcoming environment. My mentors were very open to helping me if I had any questions or concerns. They also gave you the opportunity to explore other departments if you had other interests in the industry.

    Cons

    I wish I was a little busy more. I felt like since it was a six month my project only took two months to complete.

    Advice to Management

    Kellogg is a wonderful company, and I felt like RQN&T interns got a lot of the internship by making it six months instead of the typically summer internship.
