Family-based company with a many good qualities.

Intern (Former Employee)
Camden, NJ (US)

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

ProsBenefits are usually very good, they allow for an open environment to work and discuss with your coworkers and the culture is generally very friendly. Also, there is quite a bit a diversity in age groups and gender.

ConsThere is not much racial diversity among the employees and sometimes the upper management is too personal. Although you will enjoy how personal they are, sometimes they call for meetings that could have easily been conducted over the phone or through email, making work less efficient.

Advice to Senior ManagementFind more efficient ways to communicate needs to other employees.

Good company to work for because people there are hard workers

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Campbell Soup as a contractor

ProsPeople in the organization are dedicated to their roles and accomplishing their assignments. As a contractor, I saw a level of dedication unprecedented elsewhere. Great work-life balance program as work from home and taking care of self is encouraged. Supportive during times of personal need.

ConsAs the company makes adjustments to meet changing business landscapes it has meant more work with fewer resources.

Advice to Senior ManagementConsider modifying work load to match resource availability to reduce risk of burn out and stress.

Overall Minimal Complaints

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Campbell Soup

Pros- Great team of people: very intelligent, great pedigree
 - Had the opportunity to learn and grow
 - Worked very hard and was rewarded with recognition and promotions
 -

Cons- Meeting culture: Expect to be booked from morning till evening. I brought work home with me and worked very long hours outside of the office
 - Lack of decision making: They are trying to change this, but this is a cultural issue and will take time
 - Reorganizations annually, if not more.... difficult to get traction

Advice to Senior ManagementSet the course and stay on it. Whether it be DAI, Engagement, whatever the new process or policy or innovation.... stick to something and see if it actually works.

I worked at Campbell Soup for more than 10 years.

Sales Manager (Former Employee)

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

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.
