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

    Pros

    Great brands and beautiful HQ facility.

    Cons

    Where do I begin? Managers promoted to incompetence. Very High Turnover especially for women. (HR needs to look at that.) Anyone over 50 should start looking because Campbell likes to fire and hire two Millenials. Then the Millennials quit. Nice strategy. Before I left I heard from others that had left that Campbells was the worst company they ever worked for. Unfortunately things did not get better and with a re-org every year and no brand growth it was time to go.

    Advice to Management

    Staff your teams properly. Be more considerate to employees. Reward your top performers. Cut the dead wood. Senior leaders need to be accountable for poor growth and sales performance. HQ culture is toxic.

    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."

    I worked at Campbell Soup Company full-time

    Pros

    Nice headquarters facility and fitness center.

    Cons

    The canned soup and shelf stable meals categories are in decline and this company does not change its leadership, thinking, and behavior to create new approaches for growth. Continued misses of annual sales targets is evidence enough that the changes and acquisitions they make are not the answers. Move on.

    Pros

    Great Pay for Interns. Daily and Weekend OT added to good salary based pay. Great Opportunity to develop and hone leadership skills.

    Cons

    Minimal guidance (could be good, or bad depending on your preference). Sub par on-boarding process.

    Advice to Management

    Strengthen on-boarding and training processes for new hires. This will help in the long run with employee retention

    Great people to work with.

    Cons

    No room to advance. Management sets you up to fail as their scape goat. Live your values.

    Advice to Management

    Make an assessment and give your employees a chance to succeed. Give them real opportunities not lip service, stand behind them and cheer. Celebrate victories and learn from losses.
