    Pros

    I work in R&D and I work with a wonderful group of people. It makes coming to work a pleasure and I have loved my job for more than 22 years.

    Cons

    In the past 4 years, the company has gone through several reorganizations and lay-offs so that there is an insecurity about the stability of your position.

    Pros

    I've loved my years here at Campbell's. I work for a fantastic group. Opportunities for learning and growing. Have enjoyed all the volunteer and team activities as well as working in a great environment.

    Cons

    I can only say I'm sorry I have to leave the company. They've had several layoffs in the years I've been here. I'm not feeling they value their employees in some sense.

    Pros

    Good Pay. Nice office - completely renovated inside. Summer hours. Competitive benefits.

    Cons

    Located in Camden. Old boy/girl network.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be reviewed and rated by their subordinates annually. Good managers will embrace change/improvements, whereas poor managers stymie any improvements. Some managers have it in their DNA to be 100% accurate and will spend forever reviewing data before making a decision.

    Pros

    * Loved the people. Made some friends that I will be close to 20 years from now
    * Good work-life balance by CPG standards
    * Love the brands and the culinary spirit there

    Cons

    * Just tons and tons of management layers. Creates tons of busy work, neuters getting anything done and leads to rampant politics. They keep bringing in consultants that tell them this, but they can't seem to bring themselves to take a layer out, they just trim the number of bodies each time.
    * Lack of integrity at the most senior levels. Not that they are breaking any laws, but they don't do what they say and don't follow through on promises. Main reason I left.
    * Very challenging industry with current culinary trends. They know it and are trying to change, but have been getting their lunch eaten by smaller start-ups.

    Advice to Management

    Take the plunge and reduce the number of organizational layers. Shoot straight and don't promise things that you can't and won't deliver on. Keep pushing on fresh and healthy foods - that is where the world is headed.

    Pros

    Competitive salary with good internal training programs. Consistent growth and promotion for proven talent and contribution. State of the art, innovative work conditions at corporate headquarters.

    Cons

    Company seems to continue to seek what its portfolio should contain (companies). Platforms keep changing with resulting layoffs. Difficult to remain relevant in a canned soup category when it seems to be a dying food industry segment.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to stay the course with reorganizing the corporation according to identified platforms (baked snacks, healthy beverages). Get through the reorg quickly. Confidence in remaining personnel, those not laid off, is faltering and thus creating a difficult place to achieve excellence.

    Pros

    Great brands and friendly people. Benefits are good and the corporate campus has become a really nice place to work.

    Cons

    Corporate structure requires you to take a very active role in growing your career. Doing a great job at your job is not enough to get ahead. You have to be comfortable with change. The company restructures every 12-18 months.

    Advice to Management

    Become better at recruiting across divisions. It should not be so common to meet people who have been laid off by one team and then rehired by another area. There has to be a better way to move people internally without letting them go and then hiring them back.
