    I have been working at Avery Dennison

    Pros

    They are a true Global Company and at the core are organically diversivied given their true, true Global existence.
    You will see varying styles of Leadership and taken in with the "right' mindset, you'll see different styles of Leadership working well together.

    Cons

    A gap in what is being communicated and what is really happening.
    The same varying styles of Leadership, may not allow for growth to some that might be better suited in a different setting.
    A disconnect with what their organice strengths are and what they think they need to develop, as a Company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't lose sight of who is providing you the data for the things you do. Your employees are bothe stake holders and the worker bee's who know as well as see, what is really happening. No need to "doll up" or package your communication to your worker bee's, they gave you the data.

    I worked at Avery Dennison

    Pros

    Good pay, good PTO/Holidays, ability to work remotely when necessary. Some nice people.

    Cons

    They are WAY behind in their technology which is eroding both their margin and market share (10+ years). Leadership is unwilling to make the necessary investment which will continue this downward trend. Not a viable strategy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You will continue to lose market share and profit until you update your back-end systems. Despite your desire to do so, you cannot continue to operate as you always have.

    Pros

    The people are all very nice and helpful. Loved my job here but had to move to another state.

    Cons

    Wouldn't let me come back to work for them when I quit to move even though my supervisor knew I was planning on moving away and said they didn't.( J.C is a jerk)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really wished I could've had a second chance here . I was a good worker and that's all that should have mattered.

    I have been working at Avery Dennison full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is plenty of room for upward movement at Avery. The pay is as good or better than comparable employers.

    Cons

    There are a lot of politics that go into who moves up, and how quickly. As with most large companies, it takes forever to get any sort of change implemented. There is a lot of talk about the culture, but it is all really written just to sound good and not really what they strive for.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, with a very formal annual review. You know where you stand.

    Cons

    Way too many reorganizations, and way too many Harvard MBAs that know everything, but end up being like a tornado...leaving a trail of destruction behind before they disappear.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit making personnel decisions based on Quarterly financial results.
