    I have been working at Campbell Soup Company full-time

    Pros

    Strong culture, work-life balance, competitive pay, updated work environment, company evolving from a soup company to a food company focused on growth in snacks portfolio and other growing areas

    Cons

    Constant re-orgs and new enterprise structures, years of declining top line growth, intense focus on cost savings, no department budgets for travel and career learning opportunities

    Advice to Management

    Continue to provide transparency to employees of the direction of the company and the integration of recent acquisitions

    I have been working at Campbell Soup Company full-time

    Pros

    Not too many. I get paid every two weeks and they have started kicking in an additional 3% to my 401k

    Cons

    Where to start. We were bought by Campbell's a few years back and our President, at the time, did his best to keep us out of their overall structure. They fired that President and now we are getting sucked in and it is horrible. Over the last two years my benefits cost has gone up by $2,000 per year while the coverage has gotten much worse. I also had my pay cut as part of a "comp leveling" exercise. The most frustrating part about the pay cut is that no one at Campbell's recognizes it as such.

    Denise Morrison is desperate to save her job so she just keeps buying up more and more companies in an effort to get to her magical $10B. At the same time the company has very little knowledge of what to do with some of those companies once they buy them.

    If I were one of the companies that was just bought up by Campbell's I would unionize as quickly as possible. At least make them collectively bargain to take away your rights instead of just letting them hammer you over and over again.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of the Fresh business. You don't know what you are doing and you are, clearly, not willing to take the appropriate risks to be successful.

    Pros

    Decent pay but not great.

    Cons

    It is not a team environment.

    Advice to Management

    Micromanaging is interrupting the workflow of the employees. Do not take professional objections personal as you will be wrong from time to time. Work on creating positive relationships with your employees and keeping your word.

    Pros

    Great brands to work with.

    Cons

    Every other year, the company undergoes a major reorg and lays off lots of talented people. You're never safe.

    I worked at Campbell Soup Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great brands, people and appreciation of team members. Competitive pay, flexibility and ability to influence the agenda but you must choose to do so.

    Cons

    Slow growth, risk averse - ideas recycled as a result. Need to go back to the good to great principle of embracing the cold hard truth, acknowledge it and then plot a new way forward.

    Advice to Management

    Find a synergistic deal to alter portfolio.
