    Pros

    The friendships are the best asset of the company.

    Cons

    Right hand doesn't know what left hand is doing. No promise of promotions. We had to take a cut in raises and yet Upper Management is in Hawaii???

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is too top heavy. Please review your policies because they will end up causing more problems in the future.

    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 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

    Nice people, gorgeous new office. Good place to start out of college.

    Cons

    Overall not a great place to have cross functional growth. Very matrixed so hard to get momentum on projects. Not the most supportive of change.
