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

    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

    Great Benefits and people. it is a place with may different options to advance. Lots of variability on jobs and carriers

    Cons

    The down side is the constant changing of direction. Kellogg is working to find its way into the changing consumer market so it causes many changes in roles and jobs

    Advice to Management

    change is needed but the constant changes have caused stress and confusion with the employees and i believe the customers as well.

    I have been working at Kellogg Company full-time

    Pros

    Coworkers and higher-ups are generally more friendly and personable than other places I have worked, and pay is pretty decent for the area (unless you're a contractor, but even then it's decent).

    Cons

    The company is going through a long term restructuring, so occasionally there will be lay offs which are never a pleasant experience. Mid and upper management often quickly institutes changes that are poorly thought out and implemented.

    Advice to Management

    Reassure your employees that your aren't merely rearranging chairs on the Titanic.

    I have been working at Kellogg Company full-time

    Pros

    Great Midwest company focused on providing quality food to consumers world wide.
    Sees people as an asset and provides career advancement opportunities. (But they make sure it's you that owns your career as it should be.)
    K Values is seen as critical platform on how we do business.
    Is prepared to make the hard decisions on how to make the company successful, always looking at ways to improve the company.

    Cons

    Work/Life balance is a choice, but the deadlines and savings targets that may be un-achievable creates situations that sometimes make this a hard choice to live by.
    Several business transformations over the years has started to create change management fatigue in the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Transformations are the new normal in the CPG industry. Recognize signs of fatigue and remember that each employee wakes up and comes to work to be successful. Unrealistic expectations doesn't mean you will achieve more. In the end, you will achieve what you will achieve but with a tired and worn out organization that will break. There is a fair amount of money at the top that the bottom will never see. Hard to read about big bonuses on top when the rest of the organization is burnt out and doesn't feel they can be successful because of unrealistic targets to grow in a declining industry.
