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

    Pros

    Pay, environment, benefits, work life balance were all acceptable. I sustained a knee injury that I needed surgery to fix. I was out for about 2 months and everything was seamless. My job was located in New Jersey where cost of living is higher so pay reflected that.

    Cons

    Working at the headquarters of a large food manufacturing company was difficult. I was at a lower level and always felt my job was in jeopardy. There was a lot of "corporate speak" that was almost political and I found it hard to decipher. If you want to move up in this company someone higher up has to vouch for you. If you have no friends in high places you will be stuck or dismissed. I have 12 years experience in the food industry and every job I applied for was blocked for me. I found it extremely frustrating. I was relieved when I was laid off in the midst of a company re-organization.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent. Give people a chance who have positive performance history. Cut the BS

    Pros

    Nice work environment, somewhat dependent on group personalities. Conservative but consistent benefits. Not a workaholic culture.

    Cons

    Periodic layoffs, firings without much concern by upper mgmt. Admin and support functions are treated as second class citizenry. Culture is trying to be managed, shifted to millennials and younger, so lots of young inexperienced

    Advice to Management

    Integrate your admin population into the real world

    "Working For Campbell's Paris, TX Plant"

    Current Employee - Operations in Paris, TX
    Current Employee - Operations in Paris, TX

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

    Pros

    I've worked at Campbell's for 28 years. Most of it 6 to 7 days per week. They offered a good retirement plan and insurance, so I have saved a lot of money in my 401k. The work is about what you would expect working in a factory. Sometimes good, sometimes bad. If you want to make money and don't mind putting in the long hours, it is a fairly good place to work.

    Cons

    I've spent most of my life working, with little time for my family or personal life. We work 6 to 7 days per week, sometimes months at a time. Some of it 12 hours per day. It is taking a toll on my body and also on others. Benefits and pay are becoming extinct for new employees. The equipment needs repair and employees get blamed for downtime. Overall most of management is pretty good, but higher management is out of touch with operational employees. The plant is very hot in the summer months, which wears down a persons energy level.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time working with employees to determine downtime issues. Hire more people so the overworked employees have a chance to rest and make a life.
