    I worked at Campbell Soup Company

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Iconic brands.

    Cons

    Extremely political, very focused on who you know...no expertise required

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to be more inclusive of different ideas, styles. Attempt to elevate the talent by hiring people who actually know what they are doing. Don't make success a moving target...learn to set, communicate and maintain appropriate expectations. Seek to understand the cultural biases that inhibit the success of people who do not fit the Campbell mode and treat EVERYONE respectfully and fair.

    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.
