    I worked at Campbell Soup Company full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Team oriented feel, I felt valued and trusted in my role, was promoted after 2.5 years which was great. I really made lots of friends through work, they promoted networking and team building events. Good work/life balance and summer hours were a nice perk. The cafeteria is also pleasant with new, healthier offerings. I gained a lot of good work experience at Campbell's.

    Cons

    Change in management yeilded numerous lay offs and changes in how valuable my group was.

    I worked at Campbell Soup Company as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Generous compensation and people are very friendly. Nice gym and cafeteria, opportunities for advancement. Can also switch departments as needed, although will need support of your manager.

    Cons

    Being a younger professional in an environment where most have their MBAs and children can be challenging. Harder to initially relate to some people, but overall a good place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to the internal talent pool.

    Great new work spaces that are modern and allow for more collaboration. The company cares about its employees and has a supportive environment for growth.

    Keep supporting work-life balance, flexibility, and career growth.

    I worked at Campbell Soup Company full-time

    Pros

    Great work/life balance and a friendly, culture that (for the most part) cares about its employees. Yes there are layoffs and cutbacks but CSC tends to do it in a nice way compared to most companies.

    In addition, senior management grants a strong level of ownership to employees. It is generally a culture of trust and not micromanagement.

    In addition, compensation is pretty solid, particularly since south jersey/philadelphia is significantly cheaper than other areas in the northeast.

    Cons

    If you are ambitious, you may grow frustrated here. Its really a more mid-sized company compared to other CPGs so opportunities are few and far between, and the company is often not willing to "Rock the boat" to accelerate high performers.

    Pros

    - Great pay
    - Good benefits
    - Nice headquarters
    - Family oriented w/ the work life balance that comes along with it
    - Strong corporate culture w/ emphasis on relationships

    Cons

    While this is a great place to work, we do play in many mature but declining categories. It can get discouraging to see red numbers on a page when you know you are working your butt off.

    Also this is very much an old boys' network. America is changing, folks. Hire people who represent the diverse landscape of our country & give them to the support they need to move up through the ranks. Promote based on performance!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    DIVERSIFY! People aren't buying soup like they used to. I know we're trying with innovation but let's accelerate our acquisition rate and get into some spaces that are on-trend w/ long term viability!
