    Pros

    Great pay, great reimbursement and hard work if you are willing to do it and be self motivated to keep yourself working.

    Cons

    Management thinks they know better, not true hours, find out about schedule night before next day. Will work you to death if don't say no!

    I have been working at Kellogg Company full-time

    Pros

    The company took away all of the pros. There is nothing left.

    Cons

    The company is struggling and is making lots of reckless cuts. A lot of top talent has been eliminated. Those left must pick up the pieces and do the work of 5 people. Work load doesn't change even with a 25% reduction in head count. On top of this, benefits such as tuition reimbursement, bonus pay, fitness center, relocation packages are being cut or costs to employees are increasing.

    Advice to Management

    We need new leaders at the very top. Middle management and below are struggling. Everyone is looking to get out.

    Pros

    Good people, flex schedule and paid well. Fortunate to have a good group of peers. Overall I was very satisfied with experience.

    Cons

    Long hours, span of control. Not as good a situation nationally as mine in South East US. We pay the labors well and that made job a little easier.

    Pros

    Working with store level personnell

    Cons

    Authoritarian management style; "my way or the highway" philosophy

    Advice to Management

    Little to no effective communication, micromanaged and lack of people skills. I treat my dogs better; clearly the real reason for the pending mass layoff.

    I have been working at Kellogg Company full-time

    Pros

    Union shop. Union has a lot of control of the process. Pays well. Lots of overtime. Decent benefits. Climate controlled.

    Cons

    Too much overtime. Management too overwhelmed with odd jobs and reports to give support. Lots of FMLA abuse. Lazy co-workers.

    Advice to Management

    Need to introduce a better support system. When an employee tells you something is broken or can be improved, at last look into it. Quit waiting for repair requests to come from the top.

    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 (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Nothing to mention, they have cut all benefits back quite a bit. Their 'K Values' do not apply to upper management. The environment has been getting worse as time moves on.

    Cons

    Their benefit package is not what it was, they have been cutting salaries of most other than executives yet they have been profitable. Top executives have been the only employees to reek rewards in the past few years.
