    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."

  8. "labeling"
