Current Employee - R&D Program Manager in Camden, NJ

I have been working at Campbell Soup Company

Pros

Company has a very loyal workforce, many multi decade workers still present. Compensation is very competitive within peer group companies

Cons

Progress is hard to come by in R&D, and is gained more by those willing to play politics, or from the old school network

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep looking at what your competitors are doing to grow their business, and be willing to invest to keep relevant to your changing consumer market

    My career was rewarding, challanging and skill building

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance

    • Career Opportunities
    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.
