    Pros

    Considerable learning curve and high quality intelligent co-workers.

    Cons

    Unable to compete in the space of custom soups for the positions we were hired for so entire division was let go. Many good employees were let go as a result of a failure to change or evolve processes. We lost out on considerable opportunities to gain a foothold in National Accounts with high value customers due to develop timelines and production costs to considerably smaller companies with less resources.

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Hard to advance within the organization, but that is usually the case in most companies.
