    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 Management

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

    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 Management

    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.

    Work is easy and non strenuous.

    Cons

    Favoritism.
    7 Day schedule during soup season.
    New HPO guidelines make it harder to advance with company and receive raises.

    Management should adhere to the complaints of current employees. Suggestion box inquires seem to go unanswered with management.
