    Brand Manager in Etobicoke, ON

    I worked at Campbell Soup Company for more than a year

    Pros

    Half day Fridays and central location. Nice people to work with. Gym on site

    Cons

    Lack of leadership. Leadership team very segregated from remainder of organization. Lack of communicating. Operates under fear and finger pointing. Cost cutting is priority over growth due to categories reaching maturity and declining.

    I have been working at Campbell Soup Company full-time

    Pros

    - Company is serious about protecting its shareholders and bottom-line - Everyone is "nice"

    Cons

    I grew disillusioned this week by our company's response to customers expressing concern about the CEO's participation on the US President's Manufacturing Council. Customers began calling us #SoupNazis on-line; I hear the customer support lines had unusually long wait times during all this. When given an opportunity commit to our values the company's response seemed to be one of turning the other way. If we ignore it, surely, it might go away? Our stated values have turned into a thin veneer that glosses over a core of old-school corporatism. Our brand "real food" seems more fake then ever. This is not a place for serious brand professionals, nor, seemingly, those will any moral fiber. In short: - Poor environment for serious brand managers who want to espouse real values. - Lack of credible leadership and commitment to local community - Narrow focus on our shareholders only; actions speak louder than words!

    I have been working at Campbell Soup Company full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Campbell has all the positive aspects you'd expect in a traditional CPG company (Strategic leadership, Training, Iconic brands, large resources, great facilities). The main thing that sets it apart is that it cares for the people they serve with their products (Real Food for Life's Moments) as well as the people who work there. I am able to have a challenging and rewarding job surrounded by some of the smartest but kindest people I've ever met and at the same time make time to be with my family and make time for my personal life.

    Cons

    Like other large public CPG companies is very susceptible to Wall Street and the uncertainty of suddenly being acquired or need to cut it's way to EBIT targets is a constant reality to deal with. It's become a flat organization in recent years so upward movement is more limited than other places.

    I worked at Campbell Soup Company

    Pros

    Great on the job training opportunities for marketing managers, exposed to a broad range of experience in just 4 years' time.

    Cons

    Lots of "hallway" conversations that align priorities without the entire team to provide input. Marketing tactics are stuck in 1995. Difficult culture for promotions.
