    I worked at Avery Dennison

    Pros

    Good benefits. Many locations such that you got opportunities to travel many places. It is a California company with some high tech cultures.

    Cons

    Too big with matrix organization such that it might take longer to make a decision. Many divisions got different priorities, that might make the decision-making situation even worse.

    Pros

    Good work-life balance, the company treats its employees well and is not cut-throat in its decisions. Possibility to get involved in work outside of your immediate job if you show and interest and get involved. Truly global company, not just a US company that operates outside of the US. People working in other regions definitely get to drive strategy and change.

    Cons

    Change doesn't always happen as quickly as it should
