    Pros

    At Campbell's you will be given lots of responsibility and room to develop and help the business. The company prefers people who are self starters and are able to navigate a complexed political environment. The benefits are good, and the pay structure is very competitive, especially at the higher levels, which creates an incentive to improve, grow and contribute. The company really tries to engage the employees in the operation of the business, by using affinity groups and opportunities to get involved by making suggestions that are utilized in product development.

    Cons

    The average tenure is greater than 20 years of age, and although the company is now bringing in young talent, it is difficult to change the entrenched positions of the people who have see an earlier version of the company and are stuck in the past. The political environment is difficult due to allowing the tenured people move up in the organization an become decision makers. This is good for the business, but due to their relatively isolated experience, this makes it difficult for them to develop others for competitive roles above their current performance level.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to employees at the lower level more. Use 1:1 sessions of people who have been there 4,5 or 6 years. These are the employees who will tell you where your roadblocks are hiding.

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    it is a good company for job security because it is a family styled company that plays buddy system, making sure you please your boss and eat out with him/her few times a week and you will be fine, this company has a high tolerance to accept failures !! it's good for people looking for paycheck twice a month but take no risk suggesting new ideas and initiatives for the benefit of the company's future.

    Cons

    management promote people close to to them but not to people far away from them even they can greatly benefiting the company, Most middle management are not entirely honest in the company and they care more about their persoanl agenda than the company. They generally do not see far ahead in business and have very limited foreign experience. Senior management relies too much on middle management and have caused many failures in business projects. effiiciency of this company is very low; it is common to see people/ groups covering up mistakes or failures,

    Advice to Management

    eliminating family members or friends in the company and focus on using others with applicable skills that can bring in immediate results, the key is to hire the right and the very best person for job and not the closest friend - it's easy to say but very seldom done in this company,

    Pros

    Great work/life balance. Newly created building looks great. Great location close to Philly. Team environment creates atmosphere for cross-functional sharing.

    Cons

    A lot of meetings create a lot of grind. Decisions are made through consensus, not single authority. People don't stay in roles more than 2 -3 years.

    Advice to Management

    Would like to see more risk-taking from management. Need to be leaders in markets, instead of fast-followers.
