    Relaxed atmosphere with great coworkers.

    As an intern you do not qualify for the benefits that the full time employees get. (life/health insurance, 401k, etc.)

    My career was rewarding, challanging and skill building

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Camden, NJ

    I worked at Campbell Soup Company

    Pros

    Campbell's vision and mission, the challanging and rewarding work, the support I had by management as my career progressed and the feeling of pride in our products, customers and coworkers.

    Cons

    Sometimes too many layers, managing by objectives and being asked to force rank my direct reports. Working in the city of Camden.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mid level management needs to develop trust skills for the non-management employees. Value is there and is untapped at times - begin to build a relationship and when review time comes - do not let the one or two errors distract you from seeing the hundreds of positive happenings.

    Pros

    Great People, Collaborative Environment, Strong Leadership, Community Involvement, Iconic Brands, Fancy New Employee Facilities, Employee Shuttle allows you to live in Philly

    Cons

    Large intern class makes it easy to get lost in the crowd. Experience is highly dependent on manager you are assigned to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Objective criteria for intern evaluation that we could see so we know how we are ranked against each other would be helpful.

    I worked at Campbell Soup Company

    Pros

    The most open, warm environment I have experienced. The people are genuinely nice and want to see the company succeed. The Former CEO did an amazing job leading the company. He knew nearly everyone by name and would make it a point to walk around and talk to his employees every week.

    Cons

    Its very difficult to move from one area of the firm to another. Also, the brand management team are the "gods" of Campbell Soup and can be difficult to work with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to make Campbell and family-friendly, warm environment. Work on building employee training and allowing employees an opportunity to advance.
