    I recommend Campbell Soup

    Category Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsStrong Brands that consumers love. Investing in World Headquarters making it a much better place to work. Name recognition, heritage.

    ConsMany categories are declining. Changing Culture. Possible takeover target. Yearly reorganizations have crippled employee morale. Constant turnover Sales & Marketing personnel.

    25 year employee

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Napoleon, OH (US)

    ProsEmployees are great. They really do care about there job. If they were given respect and gratitude for there work. They would work harder. This company doesn't get it.

    ConsSupervision is terrible. They belittle employees. Company does not fix machines. They do not care about quality of product. Only quanity.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you would respect the ones doing the work. They would work harder. You don't get that. Also, you have to many salary that are dead weight. If you cut them you could save a bundle.

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

    Director (Former Employee) Camden, NJ (US)

    Old company slow to make changes.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Camden, NJ (US)

    ProsOne of the corporate headquarters buildings is new and has a nice cafeteria, gym, and conference rooms.

    ConsManagement is slow to make any changes. Very top heavy organization. Majority of the HQ facility in Camden is old and outdated. They're shutting down plants because their business is slowly dying and they're not agile enough to make changes to stay competitive.

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

    I worked at Campbell Soup for more than 10 years.

    Sales Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat people who take pride in doing good work. Opportunity to develop strong analytical skills to get management to support your ideas. Company really values strong finance and analytical background/expertise. Strong brand equity and consumer recognition. Great benefits overall depending on position.

    ConsStill too conservative and risk-adverse. Needs to be more agile in making decisions. Flat organization leaves little room for upward mobility or diversity of roles/responsibilities.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEncourage and reward intelligent risk-taking and creativity. Provide employees with greater autonomy to make decisions impacting business. Need greater flexibility and responsiveness when addressing market and customer needs.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

     

    Campbell Soup

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsCampbell Soup has a rich history and diversified brands and you can learn a lot about how to run a business. They also pay well and have an on-site child care center and gym.

    ConsWork/life balance can be a challenge because cutbacks over the last several years have required everyone to do more with less. Some managers will allow you to work from home, but this is necessary because dependent on your role you can work 50-60+ hours each week.

    It is hard to move up if you are well networked with the right people. This can be frustrating at times.
