High energy work force
Territory Manager (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXJanuary 13, 2016
Kellogg's has a high energy work force. In addition, it is a well-organized sales operation. My day consists of negotiating incremental sales with key decision makers in order to grow Kellogg's revenue. I've learned powerful negotiating skills, as well as sustaining strong client relationships. Management provides an excellent line of communication that enables clear company directives. My colleagues and I work closely together to share best practices that further enhance sales goals. Team work is a central part of the Kellogg culture. The most challenging part of my job is to find more stimulating opportunities that will further enhance my sales expertise.
The most enjoyable part of my career is exceeding my sales goals which I've consistently done for the past 14 years.
Pros
Healthcare, company car, 401K
Cons
Growth opportunities, compensation stagnation

Great for getting your foot in the door for experience
Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Battle Creek, MIMarch 28, 2016
Working for Kelloggs was great however, as a part-time merchandiser you don't have any benefits. Your work week vary's from week to week or day to day for that matter. The company's RSM's order way too much product and expect you to make sure it all goes up with no back stock. This is either they don't know how to order or the company expects way too much of them. Over all if your looking to gain experience in the merchandiser go for it if not look else where.
Pros
free to eat when ever, breaks are between stores
Cons
RSM don't know what they are doing, sometimes long wait times

Kellogg Snacks Division needs more Training
OPERATIONS COORDINATOR (Former Employee) –  Auburn, MEMarch 1, 2016
Management is very intimidated by any employee that has more education than they have. You become a threat the better you are at your job and if you give the other managers suggestions they become unfriendly. The hardest part was trying to bridge the departments together because in reality, we are all part of the same team.
Pros
Compensation was great, Benefits good
Cons
Poor management, treatment of union employees is poor, non-union employees are reminded that they are replaceable.

Great place to work
Operations Coordinator II - Supply Chain (Current Employee) –  Cincinnati, OhioMarch 3, 2016
Great place to work and a very encouraging culture.

Very hectic work environment

My technical skills have improved vastly with SAP an other proprietary software applications.

Direct management is great, but the steering committee may be steering with no hands.

The hardest part of the job is being overwhelmed in supporting sales staff.

The part of the job that I enjoy the most are the co workers.
Pros
Great Benefits
Cons
A reorg every year.

The people make the job
administrative support (Former Employee) –  Battle Creek, MIDecember 29, 2015
An enjoyable job working with a large team. High demand and often not enough hours to complete the job. The overall management of the company was top heavy. The team members were the best part of the job and it was hard to leave the team. Certain areas were treated differently, some better and some not so great depending on who was managing the area and responsible for the teams. However, when a crisis occurred many of the teams I worked on treated each other with a high level of professionalism and respect and were quick to come to help when it was necessary.
Pros
Great pay and excellent benefits
Cons
Often didn't replace someone who left and distributed the work to others

Worst Job Ever
Sales & Merchandising (Former Employee) –  Sacramento, CAFebruary 24, 2016
The problems with the job are a result of poor upper management. Suits with no real clue about how their "big ideas" actually fail as they filter thru the system. "Plus outs" or shoving a bunch of extra product down stores throats, leaving the stores angry, and the merchandisers and sales reps dealing with multiple cases of unwanted product and no place to put it, day after day and store after store. And, Kellogg's is cheap on pretty much every level. The hutches sent for displays are thin, flimsy and inferior to the competition. Holiday or special event product is mismanaged by sending too much to stores that can't sell it and then not being able to order more for stores that have sold out. A simple production issue that never gets resolved.
I believe that Kellogg's is being run strictly to satisfy stock holders with little to no concern for customers and or especially their employees. I can honestly say that I have never worked for a company that gave me less than Kellogg's....no benefits, minimal pay, no paid holidays or even additional holiday pay for working them, NO incentives at all. In my experience, they really don't care whether their employees are the least bit satisfied with their job. A Christmas card would have been nice fellas.
Pros
Can't think of any.
Cons
Too many to mention.

Manager, Ethics & Compliance (Current Employee) –  Battle Creek, MINovember 23, 2015
A typical day for me would include triage of ethics inquiries, concerns and allegations; responding to standard company policies as it relates to the Global Code of Ethics; Sharepoint sites maintenance; designing eLearning modules; administering training campaigns to a global audience; designing eLearning modules in multiple languages. Working closing with various vendors contracted by our department.
Pros
Big company, small town. Excellent work/life balance, compensation, and culture.

merchandising / territory rep (Former Employee) –  Omaha, NEJanuary 22, 2016
Very good benefits, but ends up being a very labor intensive job, running from store to store putting out back stock inventory. Be prepared to work long hours and days including weekends.
Pros

Cons
Labor intensive, long hours and days, weekends..

Mismanaged, unorganized due to inexperienced upper management
Operations Associate (Former Employee) –  Memphis, TNMarch 20, 2016
Very low moral, upper management has been promoted through the ranks because of their seniority and not because of talent or experience. Just because someone has been with the company for 20yrs does not make them plant management material, Kellogg's needs to get people from the outside to manage these plants and break up the clicks. Upper management wants to put in their 9-5 and run out the door, then come in the next day and criticize everyone's action yet are never hold themselves accountable for their own mistakes which are always swept under the rug. Still managing with techniques from the 1970's and1980's , I don't think any of them have been to any seminars on how to manage or act in a professional manner.
Pros
None
Cons
No work life balace, Unorganized, Upper Management inexperienced

Director (Current Employee) –  Battle Creek, MINovember 20, 2015
Organization is Very resistant to change, insular and bureaucratic. Lots of tactical activities...leadership lacks strategic vision and capabilities to transform the 'old' sleepy company to a winning CPG organization. Company does not invest in talent, no real career paths.

Go in with a game plan and get out
Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAOctober 1, 2015
Easy work. 12 hour swing shifts (3 days on 4 days off and vice versa) so thats a 36 hour work week followed by a 48 hour work week. Management doesnt know whats going on, they just make up rules as they go. No sick days, I repeat, NO SICK DAYS. Decent benefit package. Good 401k plan. 40% match I believe. No chance for advancement. Because of the union production workers have overall control, not management.
Pros
Pay, easy work, hard to get fired, benefits, overtime, annual pay raise
Cons
No advacement opportunity, stupid management, no sick days
