    Pros

    Salary above average per position by title. Fair flexibility in movement around company. Very fair to LGBT community.

    Cons

    Liberal values are okay, but feminism and ageism are often taken to extreme levels leaving great male employees unhappy, especially where questionable promotion practices based of frivolous qualities account for a high percentage of middle management. Experience and expertise are seldom valued, especially outside experience.

    Advice to Management

    Base promotions on merit more often.

    Negative Outlook

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

    Pros

    good pay and lots of overtime available, laziness on the part of HR means that incompetence will get hired back year after year.

    Cons

    no loyalty, dishonest, no accountability, diverse to a fault, poor to no training, no appreciation for improvement in efficiency, possibly because middle management is taking credit for the ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to have more contact with the floor personnel to know what is really going on, middle management is not above making scapegoats to hide their laziness or incompetence.

    I worked at Campbell Soup Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great colleagues who become really good friends. Great benefits and salary is among highest in the area for CPG companies.

    Cons

    Advancement takes a long time because there aren't many opportunities the higher up you go. As a result, employees are made to feel less capable or competent so the organization can justify withholding promotions. Also results in myopic thinking as employees strive to be perfect and just like everyone else in senior positions so they'll be promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out your career paths--you can't keep laying off middle managers and also maintain career paths.
