    Pros

    Great training, fantastic people to work with. Most employees have 5, 10, 15+ years of experience, are extremely smart, and are open to sharing their knowledge, best practices, etc.

    Cons

    Company is VERY political, morale is low at corporate HQ. It is not uncommon for the company to lay off dozens of people at the end of a fiscal year in order to cut costs. Used to be a very stable place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your people more. We used to joke around that at Campbell's you're encouraged to speak your mind, as long as you believe the same thing that management is saying.

    Pros

    Team oriented feel, I felt valued and trusted in my role, was promoted after 2.5 years which was great. I really made lots of friends through work, they promoted networking and team building events. Good work/life balance and summer hours were a nice perk. The cafeteria is also pleasant with new, healthier offerings. I gained a lot of good work experience at Campbell's.

    Cons

    Change in management yeilded numerous lay offs and changes in how valuable my group was.

    Pros

    Great work/life balance and a friendly, culture that (for the most part) cares about its employees. Yes there are layoffs and cutbacks but CSC tends to do it in a nice way compared to most companies.

    In addition, senior management grants a strong level of ownership to employees. It is generally a culture of trust and not micromanagement.

    In addition, compensation is pretty solid, particularly since south jersey/philadelphia is significantly cheaper than other areas in the northeast.

    Cons

    If you are ambitious, you may grow frustrated here. Its really a more mid-sized company compared to other CPGs so opportunities are few and far between, and the company is often not willing to "Rock the boat" to accelerate high performers.

    Great new work spaces that are modern and allow for more collaboration. The company cares about its employees and has a supportive environment for growth.
