I have been working at Campbell Soup Company full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

+ Strong staffing with bright, generally motivated people
+ Strong brands, though dusty and aging in many cases

Cons

+ Challenged on driving topline growth; and expecting unrealistic goals (especially give support levels) in that department
+ Often run like a collection of fiefdoms by folks with a particular love of the next "shiny" thing...whether that be a category, consumer group, strategy, etc. Not a lot of patience to see things through.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

While there is a benefit in aspiring to very lofty objectives, achieving them requires sustained focus investment and strategy. And current focus on very lofty objectives encourages people to inflate their forecasts to hit what is expected of them, regardless of the feasibility of actually meeting such numbers.
