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

    Pros

    Working for the company has been such an amazing experience, from senior level executives to interns within the workforce, all employees are driven, excited and progressive in how they contribute solutions to our company success. We're a company of 26,000 globally, but move at the pace of a startup...and I love that about the company.

    Cons

    I don't really have a con so I"m going to type this sentence so Glassdoor allows me to submit my review. Thanks and peace be with you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to facilitate innovation and collaboration. Our senior leadership team is already making an impact, from the new corporate location to engaging with our employees globally. We have an amazing CEO, CHRO, CLO, CIO, etc. I couldn't ask for better leadership.

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

    Pros

    Innovation, sustainability, culture and community investment are at the core of the company...loving every minute of it! I feel like I'm part of a team that wants to make a difference. I work with smart people that span the globe, literally. When I look at our product, we truly are "Everywhere You Look". When I look at the opportunities across the globe, we are "Careers - A World To With".

    Cons

    Complexity of business units/products are both a challenge and asset to navigate. I don't have much to say that is negative. Like any large company, there are complexities to deal with, all part of life I guess. Go with a small company if you can't handle it. Me? I love it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. The communication department is the best of its kind.

    Pros

    Awesome people here; very easy to work with, good team work, low stress

    Cons

    It's a large corporation. You see where all your works goes and why it matters, but at the same time it seems that the company does not know where it is going, or you don't know where you are moving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Personal Reviews of status of projects, better idea where team members fit in.

    Corporate Tax Internship

    Former Employee - Corporate Tax Intern  in  Pasadena, CA
    Former Employee - Corporate Tax Intern in Pasadena, CA

    I worked at Avery Dennison as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Actual tax return preparation, great work environment, great co-workers, beautiful building. I could tell from day one that the company is very organized and structured. The staff was very friendly and they were willing to answer any questions I had.

    Cons

    They are going to downsize soon. I also didn't receive too much training. It was more like being thrown into the fire. It was a good way to learn, but if I have no idea what I am doing, it will take a long time for me to get something done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A lot of people are concerned with the downsizing and impending move. Maybe address those concerns more?
