    I worked at Campbell Soup Company as a contractor

    Pros

    People in the organization are dedicated to their roles and accomplishing their assignments. As a contractor, I saw a level of dedication unprecedented elsewhere. Great work-life balance program as work from home and taking care of self is encouraged. Supportive during times of personal need.

    Cons

    As the company makes adjustments to meet changing business landscapes it has meant more work with fewer resources.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider modifying work load to match resource availability to reduce risk of burn out and stress.

    I worked at Campbell Soup Company

    Pros

    - Great team of people: very intelligent, great pedigree
     - Had the opportunity to learn and grow
     - Worked very hard and was rewarded with recognition and promotions
     -

    Cons

    - Meeting culture: Expect to be booked from morning till evening. I brought work home with me and worked very long hours outside of the office
     - Lack of decision making: They are trying to change this, but this is a cultural issue and will take time
     - Reorganizations annually, if not more.... difficult to get traction

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set the course and stay on it. Whether it be DAI, Engagement, whatever the new process or policy or innovation.... stick to something and see if it actually works.

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

    Pros

    They give their interns a lot of responsibility. Campbell's is very diverse so you can learn development on a wide range of products. They have a great Co-Op program and I highly recommend it. They help the interns with moving expenses and give a monthly stipend for living.

    Cons

    Not in the best location. Experience can be very dependent on the boss you're place with during the Co-Op. As in every work place there's a lot of politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More consistent experience among members.

    I have been working at Campbell Soup Company full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great individuals to work with especially on projects. Emphasis on collaboration and building relationships. Pays extremely well for most roles - actually above market in most cases.

    Cons

    Too many personal agenda's leading the organization versus a comprehensive strategy. Many believe money is the motivator versus good leadership and development. Over pays vs market which can be challenging when looking for a new role.

    I worked at Campbell Soup Company full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Strong brands, salary, work from home

    Cons

    Regardless of how well you perform, you never know whether you'll have a job from year-to-year because the company lays off large groups of employees regularly. Politics & the old-boy-network thrive at Campbell. Many of the teams run on a skeleton crew. A lot of triplework because the systems don't work properly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the field.
