    Pros

    Great pay and benefits.

    Health of the business is very weak...people are not buying canned soup anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire new employees as you are herding out a few hundred that you just laid off....happens every 4-5 years.

    "Significant lack of corporate strategy & direction is eye-opening...morale + culture is non-existent."

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

    Pros

    Do you enjoy leaving work before 5pm? Taking Summer Friday's year-round? Not knowing when the next round of layoffs + corporate restructurings will happen? Then this company is right for you!

    Cons

    Lack of focus and direction (especially within the Consumer Connections, Digital and eCommerce verticals) is a real painpoint and has stunted growth for many who have been leaving the company in droves for the past few years. Poor track record of retaining talent in these growth channels for the obvious reasons. Layoffs and re-structurings occurred way too frequently whenever a new regime came on-board that didn't want to inherit their predecessor's blueprint. Culture is non-existent -- ask anyone who is still employed there or have moved on. Morale is pretty low, too. This company is a dumpster fire.

    Advice to Management

    Actively listen to your current employees (especially the progressive ones who understand digital/eCommerce) before they leave. The clock is ticking...literally. This was my worst career decision to come on-board here.
