    Pros

    I work in R&D and I work with a wonderful group of people. It makes coming to work a pleasure and I have loved my job for more than 22 years.

    Cons

    In the past 4 years, the company has gone through several reorganizations and lay-offs so that there is an insecurity about the stability of your position.

    Pros

    Campbell's strives to provide a professional, yet relatively casual culture. The pay is good for the region and the little extra's like half day Friday's in the summer go a long way. Also, Campbell employees are generally very kind and helpful.

    Cons

    Big food is in a tough place as an industry . Campbell's is struggling to stay relevant with the new consumer. Layoffs have been an annual occurrence and it's taking a toll on morale.

    Advice to Management

    Management is saying all the right things; however, there needs to be more follow through. The only things that seem to be happening according to plan are cuts to headcount and benefits.

    Pros

    Lots of available overtime at time and a half. Can make a lot for an entry level low requirement job.

    A lot of Forced overtime. Often hard or very boring work. Lack of shift or department choice. Not particularly fulfilling work.

    Pros

    campbells has really good benefits and people. Fun work environment makes the job enticing and interesting. A company you want to do well for.

    Cons

    Not too many downsides. Sometimes wish there were more events to bring people together as unless you work at headquarters, you are often not in an office with others.

    Advice to Management

    Be better with communication. Often, word is not spread to lower levels which can cause confusion among everyone.

    Pros

    I've loved my years here at Campbell's. I work for a fantastic group. Opportunities for learning and growing. Have enjoyed all the volunteer and team activities as well as working in a great environment.

    Cons

    I can only say I'm sorry I have to leave the company. They've had several layoffs in the years I've been here. I'm not feeling they value their employees in some sense.

    Pros

    You can negotiate a good starting salary.

    Cons

    This place is a lesson on how NOT to run a business. Millions spend on products people don't want. Desperate attempts to reinvigorate a dying brand that equals cheap ingredients, GMOs, highly overprovessed unhealthy food that the company is now trying to push overseas because Americans know better than to consume this garbage. Weak leadership has influenced a culture where what is important is not how you perform, but how well you are liked. No strategy, no forward thinking, "good old boys club" mentality and no innovation here. I give this company five years until it goes under, less time for the AFH org.

    Advice to Management

    Denise Morrisson's leadership team is incapable of making hard, courageous decisions and is too tolerate of underperforming, sycophants throughout the organization. The culture is very sick and no one here is capable of fixing it. Nightmare.
