    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.
