Former Avery Dennison (Paxar Indonesia) employee comment

Finance (Former Employee)
Jakarta (Indonesia)

I worked at Avery Dennison full-time for more than 5 years

ProsCan learn a lot of good work environment. Company support employees with completed tools

ConsVery easy to fired an employee even for small fail. Pity for the employees of the acquired company. Avery Dennison tend to fail to pay severance. Even have the tendency to create an uncomfortable and force the employee to resign

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease watch your subordinaries every where in the world. A lot of employees turn over has made large losses. You have respect to loyality, not just professionalism

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good experience but the corporate leadership is a bit weak from my perspective. I didn't really get the "company spirit"

Business Analyst (Former Employee)
Leiden (Netherlands)

I worked at Avery Dennison full-time for more than 5 years

Prosgood careers oportunity ; good work/life balance specially in the European HQ

Conscompany to USA/Corporate centered ; lake of company spirit

Advice to Senior Managementless corporate communication via emails and more direct (live) communication with the company sites & employees (via webcast for instance) to reinforce linkage between the top management and the rest of the company and to give a stronger feeling of belonging to a major company.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
