    I have been working at Avery Dennison full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    We have the following: Great Leadership Team, Hours,Overtime and Open-minded individuals!

    Cons

    Communication isn't always the best, but they are constantly striving to be better. This stems from a great CEO in Dean A. Scarborough!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate a little more. Other than that, this company is the best companies that I have ever worked for.

    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 Intern - Corporate Tax Intern in Pasadena, CA

    I worked at Avery Dennison as an intern (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?

    I worked at Avery Dennison

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to move between divisions, if the desire is there. Career ladder was pretty well laid out and a good work/life balance was evident and respected.

    Cons

    It seemed that in IT, if you did not want to end up in Corporate HQ, you could get 'stuck' at a divisional IT Manager level. Also, each division seemed like it's own company - one division could be cutting headcount to make quarterly numbers, but the guys across the street were popping champagne corks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Making quarterly numbers at a division level dictated many important decisions, especially for smaller divisions.

    I have been working at Avery Dennison

    Pros

    Hands down, the culture. The best environment I've ever worked for. Love the people and open atmosphere. Not a lot of politics, more about making good sound business decisions. People treat business as if it were their own money they were spending when making decisions but spend money when necessary.

    Cons

    Have to move for promotions usually which can be difficult on families however they offer a lot of consideration around this at each business unit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should have all lines of business aligned. Two lines of business are not up with current day process and procedures so some change management needs to take place.

    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
