    I worked at Campbell Soup Company full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Employees are very well compensated for the work they perform. One can achieve a fairly good work/life balance in most departments.

    Cons

    Company too focused on protection of current cash flow and dividend at the expense of making the necessary investments to become a true global player. Organization structure is much too top heavy resulting in behavior to just survive as opposed to taking the necessary risks to promote growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As opposed to doing blanket percentage cuts across the organization initiate a true process review on a department by department basis to determine a better way to streamline the organization. This needs to be done in an objective manner and not be left to the department heads. Maybe a real COO is the answer.

    I worked at Campbell Soup Company as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Benefits are usually very good, they allow for an open environment to work and discuss with your coworkers and the culture is generally very friendly. Also, there is quite a bit a diversity in age groups and gender.

    Cons

    There is not much racial diversity among the employees and sometimes the upper management is too personal. Although you will enjoy how personal they are, sometimes they call for meetings that could have easily been conducted over the phone or through email, making work less efficient.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find more efficient ways to communicate needs to other employees.

    I worked at Campbell Soup Company as a contractor

    Pros

    People in the organization are dedicated to their roles and accomplishing their assignments. As a contractor, I saw a level of dedication unprecedented elsewhere. Great work-life balance program as work from home and taking care of self is encouraged. Supportive during times of personal need.

    Cons

    As the company makes adjustments to meet changing business landscapes it has meant more work with fewer resources.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider modifying work load to match resource availability to reduce risk of burn out and stress.

    I worked at Campbell Soup Company

    Pros

    - Great team of people: very intelligent, great pedigree
     - Had the opportunity to learn and grow
     - Worked very hard and was rewarded with recognition and promotions
     -

    Cons

    - Meeting culture: Expect to be booked from morning till evening. I brought work home with me and worked very long hours outside of the office
     - Lack of decision making: They are trying to change this, but this is a cultural issue and will take time
     - Reorganizations annually, if not more.... difficult to get traction

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set the course and stay on it. Whether it be DAI, Engagement, whatever the new process or policy or innovation.... stick to something and see if it actually works.

    I worked at Campbell Soup Company as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    They give their interns a lot of responsibility. Campbell's is very diverse so you can learn development on a wide range of products. They have a great Co-Op program and I highly recommend it. They help the interns with moving expenses and give a monthly stipend for living.

    Cons

    Not in the best location. Experience can be very dependent on the boss you're place with during the Co-Op. As in every work place there's a lot of politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More consistent experience among members.

    I have been working at Campbell Soup Company full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great individuals to work with especially on projects. Emphasis on collaboration and building relationships. Pays extremely well for most roles - actually above market in most cases.

    Cons

    Too many personal agenda's leading the organization versus a comprehensive strategy. Many believe money is the motivator versus good leadership and development. Over pays vs market which can be challenging when looking for a new role.
