    Pros

    This company has a great foundation in place. The K-Values are real and how you do you job is typically valued.

    Cons

    While there are strong brands in place this company has struggle to act with agility over the past few years as business results have sagged. Results are likely driven by changing consumer buying and consumption habits, but many of the fixes being put in place focus on the old model. There is a need to move beyond classic center store.

    Advice to Management

    Delegate and empower your employees

    Pros

    Kellogg attracts some of the brightest and most innovative and hard working professionals...

    Cons

    ...but it can't keep them because of its complete disregard for the human being that fuel the company. Leadership grinds your life and soul down with unrealistic demands.

    Advice to Management

    Remember the concept of the balanced scorecard? Financial performance is only one part of a healthy company.

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

    Pros

    Pay was about average for this type of work, benefits were pretty good

    Cons

    Employment within the industry is becoming unstable , the economy is looking good right now but the major food and snack companies are struggling .Kellogg had a major layoff they eliminated majority of sales force , closed all distribution centers and layer off all delivery drivers

    Advice to Management

    Kellogg's and most other big companies I have ever worked for are very heavily weighted in upper management . They could cut a few of these upper management people and save a lot of lower end jobs. Usually these are the people who make the most money for these companies.
