Good place to work

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

I worked at Campbell Soup full-time

ProsCampbell Soup Company is a good place to work. They hire people with strong academic background and skills. The company has been acquiring numerous outside companies recently which should increase the revenue.

ConsCompany has had several reorganizations in the last few years and let employees go. Unknown if more layoff are coming in the future.

Not a good place to stay employed

Hourly Production (Current Employee)
Napoleon, OH (US)

I have been working at Campbell Soup full-time for more than 10 years

ProsPay is somewhat competitive. The company keeps up on payroll.

ConsA lot of favoritism and " good 'old boy" attitude. Pay will be spent keeping up with insurance premiums. Have to fight for fairness on the floor. Claims to be family oriented. Working at 11:00pm Christmas night is not my outlook of family oriented.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet a grip on your lower management. Less meetings and more production.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Decent place to start, uncertain future

Brand Manager (Former Employee)

I worked at Campbell Soup full-time for more than 5 years

ProsNice people working hard
Iconic brands that offer a variety of experiences - different types of products, types of consumers, different impactful marketing levers
Good place to start your career & build skills

ConsInconsistant work environment that can be very manager specific
Poor & deteriorating culture
Employees question leadership's ability to set direction or achieve it
The current general sentiment is one of fear and frustration as the company does quite a bit of downsizing and is unable to make a significant change in course.

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

Don'tWprst Place to Work EVER!!!

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Campbell Soup full-time for more than 10 years

ProsBenefits, people you work with

ConsNot enough room to write them all down. I would love to know where all these good review writers work. This is the worst company ever. They treat the employees horribly. If you're not young, they won't even consider you for a job. It's like working in a third world country. They condone bullying and discrimination.

Advice to Senior ManagementVisit Cherry Hill, Denise Morrison - you're not better than us.

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