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

Pros

New CEO in Denise Morrison, emerging as a better leader now out of the shadow of Doug Conant, compared to working under him. She sees the need for change, and is starting the transition. She has established a leadership team with the will to transform the business, compared with the previous regime of old school network retirement fund builders. This will be an exciting couple of years, where new things will be tried, opportunities for differentiation and disruptive pathways will be more readily accepted, and the building of a healthier future and culture begins.

Cons

Having to deal with the aftermath of 10 years where the company stood still, and product portfolio stood still. Now we see the first sign of life after a long dormant period, where image was more important than profitability or growth. Difficulty will be halting the 10 year slide and turning the corner - May have to look for solutions from outside the world of soup to reverse the irrelevance of the products to today's consumer base.

Advice to Management

Diversify, acquire new businesses, take more risk, focus on something other than condensed soup! Change with the times - We were not always Campbell Soup Company, so we can change again, possibly to just Campbell's and spread our wings.

    I worked at Campbell Soup Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Was a terrific company to work for under former CEO Doug Conant. Health benefits and salaries are good.

    Cons

    Current CEO promised to boost revenues. But sales and earnings have fallen, employee engagement deteriorated and job insecurity is rampant.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your promises.
