    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.

    CSC is a great company and you can have varied experiences if you manage your career appropriately and have the support of management.

    Culture has been fantastic with the exception of the last year, year and a half due to structural changes. Changes are still on-going.

    Current Employee - Innovation Team in Camden, NJ (US)

    I have been working at Campbell Soup Company full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Wonderful people, great perks like on-site daycare and fitness center. People care about their work, and doing right by the consumer. They work hard and step up to overcome challenges.

    Cons

    Culture in flux. Pendulum has shifted too far from valuing/investing in employees (Gallup model) to solely driving business results. Feels more transactional than team or people-focused. Businesses are being consolidated without additional people resources, so teams are stretched very thin.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen more. Seek to understand what's driving employee dissatisfaction. Resource businesses and projects appropriately - many critical projects are under-resourced. When a decision is made, stick with it. The back and forth is difficult for teams to manage.
