    I worked at Campbell Soup as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    They give their interns a lot of responsibility. Campbell's is very diverse so you can learn development on a wide range of products. They have a great Co-Op program and I highly recommend it. They help the interns with moving expenses and give a monthly stipend for living.

    Cons

    Not in the best location. Experience can be very dependent on the boss you're place with during the Co-Op. As in every work place there's a lot of politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More consistent experience among members.

    I have been working at Campbell Soup full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great individuals to work with especially on projects. Emphasis on collaboration and building relationships. Pays extremely well for most roles - actually above market in most cases.

    Cons

    Too many personal agenda's leading the organization versus a comprehensive strategy. Many believe money is the motivator versus good leadership and development. Over pays vs market which can be challenging when looking for a new role.

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

    Pros

    Strong brands, salary, work from home

    Cons

    Regardless of how well you perform, you never know whether you'll have a job from year-to-year because the company lays off large groups of employees regularly. Politics & the old-boy-network thrive at Campbell. Many of the teams run on a skeleton crew. A lot of triplework because the systems don't work properly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the field.

    Great brands. Good benefits, loved the dental. Bonus structure for those eligible is also nice. Most employees are great to work with and welcoming. Depending on the department/group, open to some newer ideas and concepts.

    I worked at Campbell Soup full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Management 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 Majority of the HQ facility in Camden is old and outdated.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.
