    I worked at Campbell Soup Company full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Competitive salary with good internal training programs. Consistent growth and promotion for proven talent and contribution. State of the art, innovative work conditions at corporate headquarters.

    Cons

    Company seems to continue to seek what its portfolio should contain (companies). Platforms keep changing with resulting layoffs. Difficult to remain relevant in a canned soup category when it seems to be a dying food industry segment.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to stay the course with reorganizing the corporation according to identified platforms (baked snacks, healthy beverages). Get through the reorg quickly. Confidence in remaining personnel, those not laid off, is faltering and thus creating a difficult place to achieve excellence.

    I worked at Campbell Soup Company as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice, and friendly environment, and great work-life balance. Great options for food as well.

    Cons

    Hard to move around, if your just starting out

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to how will you as upper management work together, so you can give clear and concise direction to the Mid-level management.

    I worked at Campbell Soup Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Team oriented feel, I felt valued and trusted in my role, was promoted after 2.5 years which was great. I really made lots of friends through work, they promoted networking and team building events. Good work/life balance and summer hours were a nice perk. The cafeteria is also pleasant with new, healthier offerings. I gained a lot of good work experience at Campbell's.

    Cons

    Change in management yeilded numerous lay offs and changes in how valuable my group was.

    I worked at Campbell Soup Company as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Generous compensation and people are very friendly. Nice gym and cafeteria, opportunities for advancement. Can also switch departments as needed, although will need support of your manager.

    Cons

    Being a younger professional in an environment where most have their MBAs and children can be challenging. Harder to initially relate to some people, but overall a good place.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the internal talent pool.

    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 Management

    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!

    I worked at Campbell Soup Company full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits (health, dental, matching 401K 100% up to 4%), friendly working environment, work/life balance, training, and commitment to community service. Management supports career growth and development. Free soup Fridays and random free food can be found frequently. Discounted Godiva chocolates, Pepperidge Farm cookies, and other products at the company store. Building had been in process of updating and creating new modern office areas.

    Cons

    Systems and tools to do job are lacking/unreliable. Company seems to reorganize like every 2 years, which often accompanies layoffs. I've seen many people who have worked there more than 20 years get laid off from reorganizations. Upper management constantly making changes that create a lot of grind.

    Advice to Management

    Consider how your actions affect all the people that work below you.
