I have been working at Campbell Soup Company

Pros

Employees at campbell have tremendous pride in the company and the company's products. The senior leadership of the company is outstanding. In particular, Doug Conant "gets it" - he is a leader who inspires a culture of learning, continuous improvement, and dogged determination. At Campbell you have the autonomy to do your job in a culture that operates from the principle of "do what's right" from the top down. Campbell has very competitive compensation and benefits and is clearly focused on recruiting and developing talent. The company is a "small, big company" where a high performer can truly make a difference.

Cons

The company is playing catch-up in business systems.

    Pros

    The senior leadership of Campbell soup is outstanding. Doug Connant is a great leader before he is a great CEO. The culture of integrity and "Winning in the workplace" that has been created under the current leadership is palpable at all employee levels. Since 2001 Campbell Soup has fought hard to do right by its products, its people and its community. It is a wonderful feeling and a daily source of motivation to be proud of the company you work for.

        This is a great place to work!

    Cons

    1. As with other organizations, some middle management at Campbell Soup apply a narrow focus to problem solving. We need holistic approaches to problem solving in order to innovate.

    2. When I read the documentation for the review/evaluation process it is easy to tell how it fits into the culture of the Company. However, the annual and mid-term review process often feels like a bloated and cumbersome process. At best, it is difficult to apply to daily or even weekly activities.

    3. Gallup survey: Some items in the survey such as "In the last seven days, I have received recognition or praise for doing good work" has a tendency to created phony or empty gestures from superiors. In addition, attempts at improving Gallup scores seem to be approached by simple mechanical processes that are applied to any group that has at least 5 supervised employees. From my perspective, some low scores are a result of variables from outside these smaller groups and can not be remedied at the lower levels

    Pros

    The people - my colleagues are the best! They always work their hardest despite knowing that it's not recognized or appreciated like it is at WHQ.

    Cons

    Management at the Cherry Hill location treats subordinates like slave labor. If you make a mistake, they are all over you. Praise is hard to come by.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a long hard look at the management team at the Cherry Hill location. There's no way Doug Conant would approve of the treatment the employees receive by management. It borderlines on abusive. Intimidation is the rule.
