    Pros

    Large portfolio provides scale resulting in large gross sales and trade management responsibility. Campbell's provides autonomy to run your business as you see fit.

    Cons

    Like many organizations achievement of higher level roles require networking and relationships at headquarters. You need to "play the game"

    Advice to Management

    Strive to create equal opportunities for advancement for all employees - not just those in "the club"

    Pros

    Very good company. There are people worked 20-30 years at the company, which is rare nowadays. Overall, you do a good job, promotion may come your way.

    Cons

    There are boredom if you do the same job for 20-30 years. There are opportunities for lateral move. If you do not improve your credentials, then lateral move is all you get.

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

    Pros

    The pay is pretty good....a lot of overtime offered in some departments. Good insurance and 401k plus a credit union.

    Cons

    Leaderships can be extremely unfair. Some are lucky and are ask to do very little and others get loads of responsibilities dumped on them. Forced overtime for coverage for the slackers on other shifts. No retirement or pension plan.

    Advice to Management

    They really need to focus on the Team Leaders. Some are poorly trained and do not know HOW to lead. It can make the team become frustrated and extremely unhappy. Unorganized and unfair.

    Pros

    Great people who you can see working with for years to come. It's not just a job, it's a family.

    Cons

    Sometimes it can get stressful. Forced overtime makes it hard with people who have families.

    Advice to Management

    Don't get overwhelmed. The people on the floor don't understand why things are the way they are. When the employees get frustrated about things that's out of your control then tell them that. That somethings are out of your control. And if the are still getting frustrated then tell them the information they need to know and then walk away. Don't take to heart their threats. Just know you did the best you could with what you got.

    Pros

    The future vision coming from headquarters in Camden is needed for survival.

    Cons

    Unfortunately each satellite site and plant just plays lip service to the corporate vision, only going through the motions.

    Advice to Management

    Look toward the future and be less concerned about local politics.
