    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 Management

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

    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.

    Pros

    Opportunities are abundant. Benefits are good. Coworkers are diverse and overall pleasant. Company focus on personal growth and development. Management encourages employees to strive for advanced positions within the organization.

    Cons

    Business goals and priorities continuously changing. Working on multiple projects that are all top priority. Budget constraints often stalled or cancelled projects in midstream. Leadership turnover rate was high at times.

    Advice to Management

    Management encourages employees to take risks, work outside the comfort zone, and aim for higher goals. The organization should take their own advice. Take a chance and do something big and different. The same procedures and processes will likely yield the same results. Why settle on that? No risk, no reward.

    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 Management

    Value experience more than the college someone attends.

    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 Management

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

  10. Good place to work if you want to move up.

    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.

  11. Great people and a great team
