    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

    They offer the best work/life balance. We get flex hours where we have 1/2 days on Fridays from Memorial Day to Halloween! They are always offering new ways for us to grow in our career and they make us feel like we ARE so appreciated. As a rep, we get a company car, cell phone and computer. They also award us by giving us contests to compete in. We also get to be a part of a National Sales Meeting. We have gone to Charleston, Orlando, Las Vegas and next we'll be at Chicago. We are often left voicemail messages from senior management thanking us for our conributions to the business as well as letting us know how much they appreciate our hard work. I feel very thankful to be a part of the Kellogg family.

    Cons

    I wish I was paid a bit more in my base salary.

    Advice to Management

    Look into different levels for Sales Reps.

    Wouldn't necessarily say it is a con but you are expected to work more than a regular work schedule

    Advice to Management

    Focus on promoting interns more so that the training and knowledge isn't used for another organization
