    Pros

    Great company for training and building your career when starting out. Gain valuable experience from a top notch CPG company. From a sales perspective, the insights and resources available far exceed other food companies.

    Cons

    Senior management needs to focus on culture and engagement to drive retention.

    Pros

    It is a family owned business that has stayed true to it's roots. Quality products, made with quality people from quality ingredients.

    Cons

    Long hours and a lot of changing shift work

    Advice to Management

    increase your direct marketing strategies. Focus on the family values and traditional quality products.
    You most broaden your product lines to include more ethnic products.

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are real good. I love going to the Company store where you can get discounts on soups.

    Cons

    I have been employed at Campbell Soup for only five months and already looking for another job. There is a lot of favoritism in my department. The plant consists of a lot of temps working. I have had major issues with some of my co-workers because I I got hired from the outside as a permanent Campbell Soup employee and have never tempted. My Supervisor threatened to fire me the first day on the job!! Not kidding!!!!!!

    Advice to Management

    I don't know what it takes to make a Company become successful but you should take complaints seriously. I have always admired and thought well of Campbell Soup until I actually became employed here. Supervisors and Team Leaders should not play favorites and be more open minded. There are two sides to every story!! I have met wonderful people here but this Company is not for me. I will not be mistreated!!

    Pros

    Good pay. Safe working conditions most of the time

    Cons

    Work 7 days per week, 8 to 12 hours per day with few days off in the sauce plant. Very stressful and hot temps in the summer. Chaotic planning from management. Too much control from supervision and management trying to make a name for themselves .

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what employees are saying instead of supervision because they will deceive you . They make a lot of bad political decisions and make paperwork look good etc.

    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
