Loved everything about the Kellogg Company - best culture, best benefits, great job work/life balance, and management.
Pros: Loved everything about the Kellogg Company and was proud to be a part of it.
Cons: Really nothing. Just wanted to do more with my life - to make a difference.
I supported the Sr. VP of Marketing, Morning Foods Division, and the Sr. VP of Marketing, Snacks Division. Both had teams of around 60. Even though my main responsibility was my boss, I was also responsible for the team on an organizational level. Each division had several secretaries, of whom I supervised. I planned several offsites, meetings, plans meetings, and other organizational get- togethers. I worked with Kellogg's Meeting Planning Department, but oversaw each event. I also worked for the President of the short-lived Wholesome Portable Breakfast Snacks Division. Since it was a newly created division, I was responsible for all logistics relating to setting up a new division. These included all office equipment, furniture, IT, equipping meeting rooms, employee moves, and setting up interviews for additional staff.
My biggest responsibility was seeing that my boss was where he needed to be and had everything he needed! I managed his calendar, which had ever-changing priorities to be allowed for. I created numerous PowerPoint decks, arranged all travel arrangements, etc. I worked closely with our advertising agency - Leo Burnett - to be sure the information was flowing both ways between our department and their agency. They traveled in weekly for plans meetings and media reviews. I would be sure I had everything that was to be reviewed that day - whether decks, print ads, or media - available and in hand. I arranged for lunch and snacks throughout the day, and kept as many "critical" meetings off my boss' calendar on those media days as I could.
I was organized, multi-tasked, prepared, always ready to implement Plan B if needed, worked closely with our IT department in case we ran into any IT difficulties, and just made sure everything was running smoothly. I was extremely discreet in all areas.
