I have been working at Campbell Soup Company full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Work life balance, innovative, forward thinking, most managers engage the workforce. Cross-functional team development increased year after year for the past 3 years.

Cons

Being a large corporation their are numerous layers to get through to get to the decision makers. Local VP and Plant Manager were too wrapped up in the business politics to see the plant was the target to close. Many employees saw it coming and tried to get the attention of the VP and plant manager to find a way to stop the closure event.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Denise Morrison, the next plant closure or major change that takes place show that you care. You displayed absolutely no empathy to the Sacramento closure.

    Pros

    Campbell's is a iconic U.S. brand with a great heritage. A broad portfolio of products across multiple aisles at retail provide them the size and leverage necessary to negotiate with retailers and gain critical points of distribution. They pay extremely well and have fairly solid benefits which make their job openings very appealing to outsiders.

    Cons

    Their HR department is empowered to make decisions without due process and accurate research, or a relevant understanding of the atmospheres and sub-cultures within the field sales teams. The field Category Management team reports to their field Sales team which can provide a conflict of interest externally with some retailers. What they say versus what they do regarding work/life balance are polar opposites (my team worked 48 hours straight on a project, and it was expected by senior management).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Only reorganize when it meets a strategic directive. Do not reorganize in order to shift power to one department over another. Investigate the HR department for opportunities to educate how to influence morale in a positive way, and encourage them to visit the field teams they support to better understand the culture.
