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

    Pros

    Campbell Soup is a great company to work for and is very flexible with work & life balance, by allowing you to work from home when needed. The people working there are very friendly and supportive. The base pay was good and they gave out good bonuses once a year.

    Cons

    Campbell Soup is not very good at providing employees with a career path and career advancement. They also were not good with providing training and it was difficult to get funding approved to take outside courses for career advancement.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be to continue providing the flexibility to their workers and same level of compensation, but put more effort in providing employees a clearer career path and additional outside training in support of that path.

    I worked at Campbell Soup Company full-time (More than a year)

    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.

    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.
