    Pros

    Competitive salary, beautiful campus, although located in the very scary Camden, NJ.

    Cons

    Poor leadership, poor culture, no professional development

    Advice to Management

    Get it together. Do away with "good old boys club" and old school mentality. Invest in your people and they will be more dedicated to the company.

    Pros

    Dynamic environment, excellent pay and benefits, beloved brands. Hard-working, intelligent people and opportunities to be involved in many things. Good opportunities for work/life balance. Excellent company commitment to corporate social responsibility.

    Cons

    Competing priorities can create overwhelming workload. Unclear decision-making processes lead to an excessive number of stakeholders, and poor communication among all these decision makers can keep you running in circles.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to follow through on strategic priorities and maintain transparent communication with employees. Improve prioritization and work to streamline decision-making processes.

    Pros

    CSC is a great company and you can have varied experiences if you manage your career appropriately and have the support of management.

    Cons

    Culture has been fantastic with the exception of the last year, year and a half due to structural changes. Changes are still on-going.

    Pros

    Wonderful people, great perks like on-site daycare and fitness center. People care about their work, and doing right by the consumer. They work hard and step up to overcome challenges.

    Cons

    Culture in flux. Pendulum has shifted too far from valuing/investing in employees (Gallup model) to solely driving business results. Feels more transactional than team or people-focused. Businesses are being consolidated without additional people resources, so teams are stretched very thin.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more. Seek to understand what's driving employee dissatisfaction. Resource businesses and projects appropriately - many critical projects are under-resourced. When a decision is made, stick with it. The back and forth is difficult for teams to manage.

    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 Management

    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.

    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

    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 Management

    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.
