    Pros

    There is not one good thing to be said about this company. I'm stunned they are still in business.

    Cons

    I don't know who is submitting these reviews because I don't know anyone who works at Campbell's who is happy. They have lay-offs on a regular basis and if you're over a certain age and/or close to retirement, watch your back.

    Pros

    not much, soup sells itself, ugly people

    Cons

    It's all uptight white people trying to be politically correct instead of being themselves. You better be a skinny, boring, mediocre person to fit in. Intelligence or thinking different are not welcome. Soup sells itself

    Advice to Management

    Your HR people suck

    Pros

    Brand recognition. Decent pay. Looks good on resume

    Cons

    Politics over all else,and Incredible bureaucracy. Their Gallup employee engagement measure is a joke... It is not anonymous and there are extreme consequences for being honest. Walking down the hallways with all the placards is eerily similar to Orwell's 1984. It apparently hasn't changed.

    Advice to Management

    Change the culture and be a hungry efficient food company

    Pros

    Employees are great. They really do care about there job. If they were given respect and gratitude for there work. They would work harder. This company doesn't get it.

    Cons

    Supervision is terrible. They belittle employees. Company does not fix machines. They do not care about quality of product. Only quanity.

    Advice to Management

    If you would respect the ones doing the work. They would work harder. You don't get that. Also, you have to many salary that are dead weight. If you cut them you could save a bundle.

    Pros

    Benefits, people you work with

    Cons

    Not enough room to write them all down. I would love to know where all these good review writers work. This is the worst company ever. They treat the employees horribly. If you're not young, they won't even consider you for a job. It's like working in a third world country. They condone bullying and discrimination.

    Advice to Management

    Visit Cherry Hill, Denise Morrison - you're not better than us.

    Pros

    Brand recognition and household penetration

    Cons

    Meeting-centric culture that values face-time over actually getting work done; absolutely NO flexibility to work remotely and work/personal balance. Culture is extremely toxic... kind of like Game of Thrones set in a corporate environment.

    The former president of the sales company was a tyrant, and was known as the biggest bully in the company, yet he was rewarded for 11 years. Old-school manage-by-fear style that was emulated by many others.

    Back-stabbing and passive-aggressive behavior permeate all levels of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Stop tolerating poor leadership behaviors from your leaders and employees; take a look at your turnover (particularly in HR) and figure out why so many of your talent is leaving. During exit interview, I was told that HR had lost 19 HR professionals in less than a year.

    Pros

    flexible work hours, big company, established name

    Cons

    intern is looked at just as an 'extra pair of hands', no real project was given out but expect to have a final presentation in the end of your "project." people there like to ask us around to do things for them even though its their project and they would be doing other irrelevant things such as cooking for dinner using Campbell's ingredients!

    Advice to Management

    please treat the interns better. we are there to learn too and get something out of the experience. also, pay more attention to how the employees use their time.

    Pros

    Benefits and balance, work hours

    Cons

    Constant re-orgs, they don't give time for you to even see what transpired of the last one.
    Constant politics, nepotism runs deep. Top management has no clue who actually does the work. They promote based on who they like not who does the hard work.

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent with the employees instead of trying to hide what is coming

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Iconic brands.

    Cons

    Extremely political, very focused on who you know...no expertise required

    Advice to Management

    Try to be more inclusive of different ideas, styles. Attempt to elevate the talent by hiring people who actually know what they are doing. Don't make success a moving target...learn to set, communicate and maintain appropriate expectations. Seek to understand the cultural biases that inhibit the success of people who do not fit the Campbell mode and treat EVERYONE respectfully and fair.
