    I worked at Campbell Soup Company full-time

    Pros

    majority of team members are supportive

    Cons

    Majority of the individuals are well into their career, so not ideal for a new graduate (better off in a rotational or new grad position)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand that new graduates are fairly new to the business environment, so patience is imperative to have!

    Former Employee - General Labour

    I worked at Campbell Soup Company

    Pros

    good wages compared to other fatory jobs
    fellow employees were great to work with
    Benefits are very good for health and dental
    room for movement in the company because of internal hiring

    Cons

    worked 2 years as a temp before getting hired
    Lousy communication between management and employees
    Saftey standards are horrible, I was injured on some improperly enginerred equipment, put on disbility, and was brushed away when trying to come back to work. Felt severely betrayed, to give years of my life working there, only to be treated like garbage after injury. They treat you like another number, not like a valued employee. Dont be fooled, bad company to work for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The leadership at campells although may be sound at the top, I found it got worse as you trickle down to lower levels of management. I believe their business strategies were good, but if you treat you employess, the blood of your company, this will come back to haunt you. I honetly felt at times like i was working in a 3rd world country, not the free nation i live in.

    Former Employee - Brand Manager in Camden, NJ (US)

    I worked at Campbell Soup Company full-time

    Pros

    Great work/life balance and a friendly, culture that (for the most part) cares about its employees. Yes there are layoffs and cutbacks but CSC tends to do it in a nice way compared to most companies.

    In addition, senior management grants a strong level of ownership to employees. It is generally a culture of trust and not micromanagement.

    In addition, compensation is pretty solid, particularly since south jersey/philadelphia is significantly cheaper than other areas in the northeast.

    Cons

    If you are ambitious, you may grow frustrated here. Its really a more mid-sized company compared to other CPGs so opportunities are few and far between, and the company is often not willing to "Rock the boat" to accelerate high performers.

    I have been working at Campbell Soup Company full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - Great pay
    - Good benefits
    - Nice headquarters
    - Family oriented w/ the work life balance that comes along with it
    - Strong corporate culture w/ emphasis on relationships

    Cons

    While this is a great place to work, we do play in many mature but declining categories. It can get discouraging to see red numbers on a page when you know you are working your butt off.

    Also this is very much an old boys' network. America is changing, folks. Hire people who represent the diverse landscape of our country & give them to the support they need to move up through the ranks. Promote based on performance!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    DIVERSIFY! People aren't buying soup like they used to. I know we're trying with innovation but let's accelerate our acquisition rate and get into some spaces that are on-trend w/ long term viability!
