  1. Good for family oriented people, sustainable career possible, good for self driven people

    I have been working at Avery Dennison

    Pros

    People are self driven. There is a lot of autonomy in jobs and very less micromanagement.

    Cons

    Environment can seem slow at times. Morale low sometimes due to layoffs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be clear in target strategy- product orientation or customer orientation?

  2. good with people

    I have been working at Avery Dennison

    Pros

    human resources management is based on strong values of being fair with employees. There are less and less companies fitting that description

    Cons

    Like most larger organizations you have to navigate through some levels of politics. It is not over the board but you need to be aware of it to progress.

    I have been working at Avery Dennison full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to work. From what I can see they will work with you for promotions. Lots of young people with many in management positions.

    Cons

    Yearly review process is tedious but it is the same at all larger companies. In some ways I think the young people are put in management positions to reduce cost since the years of experience is certainly not there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value experience more than the college someone attends.

    Current Employee - OHIO in Mentor, OH

    I have been working at Avery Dennison full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Hours are light and somewhat flexible. Mangers are barely in the offices so no one is watching. People naturally disappear after 4 or on Fridays. Salaries are not the best in this area but fair.

    Cons

    Constant org changes, upper leadership team doesn't try to connect to the people and understand what really is going on. Uneven distributions for resources. Very limited opportunity for personal growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think through at least a 60-day plan for any changes you make to the organizations. Crisper communication will be appreciated.

    I have been working at Avery Dennison full-time (more than 10 years)

    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.

    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.

    Pros

    Strong functional teams...the people make Avery Dennison a great place to work and are considered by many a key differentiator in the industry.

    Challenging metrics and hard to prioritize work based on quarter focus vs strategy.

    Simplify and prioritize what will help deliver the AOP.
