Good company to work for because people there are hard workers

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Campbell Soup as a contractor

ProsPeople 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.

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

Advice to Senior ManagementConsider modifying work load to match resource availability to reduce risk of burn out and stress.

Overall Minimal Complaints

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Campbell Soup

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 Senior ManagementSet 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.

Great place to intern

R&D Co-Op (Former Employee)
Camden, NJ (US)

I worked at Campbell Soup as an intern for less than a year

ProsThey 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.

ConsNot 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 Senior ManagementMore consistent experience among members.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great people....but leadership challenged

Human Resources Manager (Current Employee)
Camden, NJ (US)

I have been working at Campbell Soup full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGreat 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.

ConsToo 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.

Strong brands, no sense of stability/job security

Senior Customer Business Manager (Former Employee)
Los Angeles, CA (US)

I worked at Campbell Soup full-time for more than 10 years

ProsStrong brands, salary, work from home

ConsRegardless 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 Senior ManagementListen to the field.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
