No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Campbell Soup Company full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

+ Strong staffing with bright, generally motivated people
+ Strong brands, though dusty and aging in many cases

Cons

+ Challenged on driving topline growth; and expecting unrealistic goals (especially give support levels) in that department
+ Often run like a collection of fiefdoms by folks with a particular love of the next "shiny" thing...whether that be a category, consumer group, strategy, etc. Not a lot of patience to see things through.

Advice to Management

While there is a benefit in aspiring to very lofty objectives, achieving them requires sustained focus investment and strategy. And current focus on very lofty objectives encourages people to inflate their forecasts to hit what is expected of them, regardless of the feasibility of actually meeting such numbers.

    Pros

    Very smart people. Very competitive in terms of the external marketplace. Takes action when its needed to stay current and relevant in the marketplace. Strong training ground for marketers.

    Cons

    Very demanding place to work. Very hard to achieve any kind of work/life balance. They will 'lean in' to job responsibilities but take their time in catching up the title and compensation to those job responsibilities.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing the sound strategic plans in the marketplace. Keep working on the workplace piece. Its too easy to burn out there.
