Does Campbell Soup Company offer dental insurance?

Pros

The company is very stable and you have a consistent work schedule. The pay is average to above average depending on what you do. Their benefits are good, 401K, health and dental.

Cons

This company was the one of the top in the area 20+ years ago when I started. Had many awesome benefits. That is why I started with them. But in the last 8+ years they have become just another run of the mill company. The benefits were stellar and are now average. The have cut out many benefits that they use to have. They do very little in the way of internal development of leaders. They prefer to bring people in from outside instead of training and helping current employees to be better and help the company be better. There is little investment in the larger employee work pool. Even for those who have college degrees. They are looked over for who know what reason. They pay you the same weather you have been at the job one week or 20 years. There has been millions of dollars saved over the years due to some employees efforts and schooling. But there is no pay back. There is little given back to employees that have many years of experience and employees are seen as a commodity and not a resource. It is too bad that things have progressed to this level. There are fewer and fewer long time employees. Especially in the upper management of the plant. They are there to get what they can and leave. No more buy in. To bad. Was a great company to work for at one time.

Advice to Management

Get away from the worldly outlook of short term gains and invest in the long term future of the company and the employees.

Does Campbell Soup Company offer parental leave?

Pros

Hourly employees, hourly rate is clear and based on the union you know what you’re suppose to get this is good. Insurance is great Ability to earn a lot of money with the sacrifice of a personal life

Cons

Extreme FMLA abuse, not ideal if you have young children unless your spouse has more free time

Advice to Management

1) the current 3 year wait for top out pay is foolish. It would make more sense to offer hitting the maximum hourly rate going by hours worked. As in, if someone constantly works 12 hours a day maybe reduce the waiting period to 2 years? And reduce the wait even further with minimal to no occurrences... If someone works for 1 year and has no call-ins and maybe only was late a few times... The company has no issue with FMLA abuse. It leaves a sour taste in peoples’ mouths when that behavior is rewarded All FMLA is “I have a migraine”, I should be able to customize my work week. There are people that show up to work maybe 4 times a month and the purpose of FMLA abuse is so a person can have access to the health insurance that’s the big thing. The joke is, people that have been at this company for 10+ years think it’s funny to brag about a very specific doctor that’ll get you on FMLA not for cancer or anything legitimate but migraines This revolves around my whole complaint of pay structure, if someone wants to abuse FMLA let them but they should be making the current probationary rate of 12.92. If our union pushed for the hourly rate to be dictated on hours worked, rather then time at the company... problem solved “Can’t come to work because of your migraines, that’s fine but because your hours per month are too low no 20+ dollars an hour for you” I say that at any point if hours worked for 1 month decrease by 10% of your monthly hours As in, if the monthly hours for November is 100 hours and you only worked 89 of those hours You should be punished and be immediately dropped to 12.92 for 3 months and if you show up to work for those 3 months you go back up to the tech 1, 2, 3, etc. union rate Probationary rate exists for new people but should be utilized as a punishment for older people
