    I worked at Campbell Soup Company as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice, and friendly environment, and great work-life balance. Great options for food as well.

    Cons

    Hard to move around, if your just starting out

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to how will you as upper management work together, so you can give clear and concise direction to the Mid-level management.

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

    Pros

    Great training, fantastic people to work with. Most employees have 5, 10, 15+ years of experience, are extremely smart, and are open to sharing their knowledge, best practices, etc.

    Cons

    Company is VERY political, morale is low at corporate HQ. It is not uncommon for the company to lay off dozens of people at the end of a fiscal year in order to cut costs. Used to be a very stable place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your people more. We used to joke around that at Campbell's you're encouraged to speak your mind, as long as you believe the same thing that management is saying.

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

    Pros

    Team oriented feel, I felt valued and trusted in my role, was promoted after 2.5 years which was great. I really made lots of friends through work, they promoted networking and team building events. Good work/life balance and summer hours were a nice perk. The cafeteria is also pleasant with new, healthier offerings. I gained a lot of good work experience at Campbell's.

    Cons

    Change in management yeilded numerous lay offs and changes in how valuable my group was.

    I worked at Campbell Soup Company as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Generous compensation and people are very friendly. Nice gym and cafeteria, opportunities for advancement. Can also switch departments as needed, although will need support of your manager.

    Cons

    Being a younger professional in an environment where most have their MBAs and children can be challenging. Harder to initially relate to some people, but overall a good place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to the internal talent pool.
