    I have been working at Kellogg Company full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Work life balance. Growth opportunities. Great people to work with.

    Cons

    Kellogg runs like any other large company. They strive to grow year after year using strategies to win. Their strategies are no different than other large companies, sometimes means closing plants or eliminating jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Provide good feedback to employees so work is always value added. Be strong to tell employees when their work habits are not value added and help them understand what is value added and how they can change to be more productive.

    I worked at Kellogg Company full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The company is pays well, has great benefits, and generally promotes a well rounded culture.

    Cons

    The management is not clear on process and will put you in a position to fail and then point out your mistakes. Very stressfull and painful to deal with. The management is the source of the negative experience. Constant change to requirements while expecting timelines to stay the same. No clear process, and misleading directions. Management experience is lacking.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to coach. Be involved in making the process especially when you are not clear on it. Do not expect that people will know your process better than you if you yourself have not encompassed the entire process. Work with your people not against them. Try highlighting some of the positives of the work being submitted.

    Pros

    good compensation. The people are great.

    Cons

    HR is the same as any other hr. They work for the companies best interest not the employees. Kelloggs has slowly been reducing departments, pension plans, benefits, perks. You never know what a Monday morning will bring. Kelloggs is no longer a 30 year career company.
