    Great new work spaces that are modern and allow for more collaboration. The company cares about its employees and has a supportive environment for growth.

    I have been working at Campbell Soup Company full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great training, fantastic people to work with. Most employees have 5, 10, 15+ years of experience, are extremely smart, and are open to sharing their knowledge, best practices, etc.

    Cons

    Company is VERY political, morale is low at corporate HQ. It is not uncommon for the company to lay off dozens of people at the end of a fiscal year in order to cut costs. Used to be a very stable place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your people more. We used to joke around that at Campbell's you're encouraged to speak your mind, as long as you believe the same thing that management is saying.

    Pros

    - Great pay
    - Good benefits
    - Nice headquarters
    - Family oriented w/ the work life balance that comes along with it
    - Strong corporate culture w/ emphasis on relationships

    Cons

    While this is a great place to work, we do play in many mature but declining categories. It can get discouraging to see red numbers on a page when you know you are working your butt off.

    Also this is very much an old boys' network. America is changing, folks. Hire people who represent the diverse landscape of our country & give them to the support they need to move up through the ranks. Promote based on performance!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    DIVERSIFY! People aren't buying soup like they used to. I know we're trying with innovation but let's accelerate our acquisition rate and get into some spaces that are on-trend w/ long term viability!

    Pros

    not much, soup sells itself, ugly people

    Cons

    It's all uptight white people trying to be politically correct instead of being themselves. You better be a skinny, boring, mediocre person to fit in. Intelligence or thinking different are not welcome. Soup sells itself

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your HR people suck
