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

    Its all about the people - set clear expectations and establish a reward system that drives intended behavior
    Stay the course when it comes to strategic objectives
    Establish realistic goals

    No opinion of CEO
