    I have been working at Campbell Soup Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Extraordinary people, culture, and (NEW) values. The pride felt working for this Iconic organization is contagious! Our CEO, Denise Morrison is a role model for future women leaders. She is an active participant and speaker at many events and the Executive sponsor of the Women of Campbell affinity network. The World Headquarters building is bright, bold, and vibrant, an exciting environment to come to daily. The affinity networks promote an environment of acceptance and D&I among all employees. There are many ways to grow professionally and enhance your network (if you work it).

    Work smarter NOT harder is the motto here at Campbell’s, work-life integration rather than balance (because what is balance really?)

    Cons

    Many positive highlights, but like any organization, Campbell’s needs to work on their politics.

    Advice to Management

    Transparency is key, continue to Do Right and Be Real. Get out of your office and say hello & how are you to your teams! Take a minute out of your very busy schedules to connect with people (it matters more than you think).

    Pros

    Team is awesome, focus on diversity and great resource groups/affinity networks. Outstanding training provided. Focus on real food is refreshing.

    Cons

    Location is not the best - but Company is contributing to make the neighborhood better. Sometimes decisions take longer because so many departments are involved.

    Advice to Management

    Keep good candidates around by promoting them in a timely manner.

    Pros

    Work Life balance was good, pay was quite good.

    Cons

    Very large corporate environment, so that it was not very personal and you felt like a number.

    Advice to Management

    Don't ignore opportunities to promote good people and also give them a chance to try their hand at new things.

    I have been working at Campbell Soup Company full-time

    Pros

    - Company is serious about protecting its shareholders and bottom-line
    - Everyone is "nice"

    Cons

    I grew disillusioned this week by our company's response to customers expressing concern about the CEO's participation on the US President's Manufacturing Council. Customers began calling us #SoupNazis on-line; I hear the customer support lines had unusually long wait times during all this.

    When given an opportunity commit to our values the company's response seemed to be one of turning the other way. If we ignore it, surely, it might go away? Our stated values have turned into a thin veneer that glosses over a core of old-school corporatism. Our brand "real food" seems more fake then ever. This is not a place for serious brand professionals, nor, seemingly, those will any moral fiber.

     In short:

    - Poor environment for serious brand managers who want to espouse real values.
    - Lack of credible leadership and commitment to local community
    - Narrow focus on our shareholders only; actions speak louder than words!

    Advice to Management

    Lead through actions; not empty words that you secured through a manual of "best practices."

    Pros

    Awesome brands, amazing campus and room for growth if you work hard.

    Cons

    Needs less politics and middle management time wasting.

    Advice to Management

    Many of us do work not that is not geared towards growing the business. Let's sharpen the focus.

    Great people to work with.

    Cons

    No room to advance. Management sets you up to fail as their scape goat. Live your values.

    Advice to Management

    Make an assessment and give your employees a chance to succeed. Give them real opportunities not lip service, stand behind them and cheer. Celebrate victories and learn from losses.

    I worked at Campbell Soup Company full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, free soup friday

    Cons

    Bad management and clickish culture. Feedback is not useful because it's all made up. They promote those that look like them based on whom they feel comfortable and not abilities. Upward mobility is non-existent for those not in the "correct" racial group. My department consistently received bad feedback on mgmt surveys but for some reason they feel like they know how to manage a group.

    Advice to Management

    Send middle managers to race relations classes as well feedback training. Also, that group may need to obtain leadership training as well.

    Pros

    Great company to work for, strong benefits, and a clear path to advancement.

    Cons

    Politics is definitely an issue and so many teams are singularly focused on their own objectives. We need more cross functional thought leaders.

    Advice to Management

    Need to find a better balance between internal and external hires
