    Pros

    The only reason you want to work here is for the money. Avery truly tries to compensate you for all the personal abuse they put you through. However, if continuous disagreement with the leadership team and a President, who is simply nuts, don't scare you, and if physically and mentally you can make it through strategies going in full circles, and a continuous deterorating financial outlook, then hang in there! You will be paid a nice sum eventually to leave, no questions asked ....

    Cons

    A bi-polar President, who leads a "yes, Sir!" Team, uses the "f" word more than 10 times in a leadership team meeting and disregards employee input and expertise. A deteriorating market position. A desert of innovation paired with chaotic execution of strategy. A culture that is only marked by "fear".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Good career opportunities and flexible culture that supports balanced work and life.

    Cons

    Like other big corporations, decisions are difficult to be made and some of decisions are made without good debates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We should walk the talk specifically when we say our No 1 priority is "Growth".
