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

    Pros

    Campbell's Soup Company has hired you as their "Math Genius". They want their new soup can to have a volume of 500 cm³. The top and bottom of the can is made of a metal that costs 6 cents per cm² while the sides of the can cost 4 cents per cm². (Of course, as the "Math Genius" you know that V = πr²h and Surface Area = 2πrh + 2πr².)

    Cons

    Express the total cost of the can as a function of the radius of the cylinder.

    Advice to Management

    What dimensions of the can produce the least cost?

    I have been working at Campbell Soup Company full-time

    Pros

    Strong culture, work-life balance, competitive pay, updated work environment, company evolving from a soup company to a food company focused on growth in snacks portfolio and other growing areas

    Cons

    Constant re-orgs and new enterprise structures, years of declining top line growth, intense focus on cost savings, no department budgets for travel and career learning opportunities

    Advice to Management

    Continue to provide transparency to employees of the direction of the company and the integration of recent acquisitions

    I have been working at Campbell Soup Company full-time

    Pros

    Not too many. I get paid every two weeks and they have started kicking in an additional 3% to my 401k

    Cons

    Where to start. We were bought by Campbell's a few years back and our President, at the time, did his best to keep us out of their overall structure. They fired that President and now we are getting sucked in and it is horrible. Over the last two years my benefits cost has gone up by $2,000 per year while the coverage has gotten much worse. I also had my pay cut as part of a "comp leveling" exercise. The most frustrating part about the pay cut is that no one at Campbell's recognizes it as such.

    Denise Morrison is desperate to save her job so she just keeps buying up more and more companies in an effort to get to her magical $10B. At the same time the company has very little knowledge of what to do with some of those companies once they buy them.

    If I were one of the companies that was just bought up by Campbell's I would unionize as quickly as possible. At least make them collectively bargain to take away your rights instead of just letting them hammer you over and over again.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of the Fresh business. You don't know what you are doing and you are, clearly, not willing to take the appropriate risks to be successful.

    Pros

    Decent pay but not great.

    Cons

    It is not a team environment.

    Advice to Management

    Micromanaging is interrupting the workflow of the employees. Do not take professional objections personal as you will be wrong from time to time. Work on creating positive relationships with your employees and keeping your word.

    Pros

    Great brands to work with.

    Cons

    Every other year, the company undergoes a major reorg and lays off lots of talented people. You're never safe.

    I worked at Campbell Soup Company full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of people are genuinely nice and great to work with. Benefits and pay are decent for the hours.

    Cons

    Traditional company trying to adapt both internally and externally to a changing world and often failing due to old school management. Lots of talented women and minorities overlooked for promotion in favor of white men who fit the traditional stereotype of a manager and the perpetuate old methods of doing things that don't work, but feel safe and familiar. Other talented people feel discouraged and leave.

    Advice to Management

    More diversity is needed at leadership levels. HR efforts to increase diversity are fruitless when there is a pervasive boys club culture. Constant whispering that minorities are only there due to affirmative action don't help. You end up with the same old people with the same tired ideas.
