    I worked at Kellogg Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits were good. I meet a lot of great people.

    Cons

    It was all about sales. We would get emails late at night that you had to react to. There wasn't any family life in their eyes.

    Advice to Management

    Think about distance future not just one at I time. Poor planning by upper management. There was also very poor communications from the top down.

    I worked at Kellogg Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There wasn't any left here

    Cons

    CEO has torn the organization into pieces constantly changing direction,demoralizing employees,unable to bring about new exciting innovation to compete with market trends,setting budgets that are so aggressive that the lousy products we have anymore will never be able to achieve the goals.

    Advice to Management

    CEO finally resigns but only after he destroys the company to the point that it would be better to sell it to someone else who cares than try to put this train wreck back together again.Good Luck to the new CEO you are really going to need it.
