    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?

    Alot of hours. Work weekends. Rarely hire.

    Hire the good, weed out the lazy.

    I have been working at Campbell Soup Company full-time

    Pros

    Great work/life balance culture. Flexible work schedules are provided and actively promoted. The unlimited sick time policy is extremely generous. Career growth opportunities are the ceiling and division/location/department/product rotations are available.

    Cons

    I don't have any cons about working here.

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

    Pros

    Decent pay. Independence. Opportunities to network.

    Cons

    Politics, politics, politics. Brown-nosers and back-stabbers abound, just like at any other company. Don't be fooled by the company's fame; it's run by the same ruthless and greedy executive crowd that runs every company. In-house propaganda can be a little overwhelming. Management is USELESS. They get paid very well to do virtually nothing but meaningless "team-building" that builds aggravation for forcing employees to socialize with co-workers they just spent 8 hours with. Management is in constant "training" but nothing changes.

    Company's pathological obsession with its youthful employees belies a desire, and concerted effort, to get rid of older employees, who often cost more and are more cynical--not as easily duped.

    Advice to Management

    DO something besides constantly declaring how perfect and wonderful you are. Your'e not. Far from it.

    Pros

    Strong iconic brands that resonate with people. The company stands behind it's principles and commitment to real food. The pay is on par and growth opportunities exist if you are based at HQ or willing to relocate.

    Cons

    Need to be more disruptive with product innovation and strategies. Experienced long tendered managers are important to have in a company but they also need to be flexible and adapt to the changing work environment.

    Work Life balance was good, pay was quite good.

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

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

    Pros

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

    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.
