    I worked at Avery Dennison (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Had plenty of opportunity to advance and grow through the organization if willing to put in the effort.
    Pay scale was fair comparative to other businesses in the area.

    Cons

    At times company would be very high on specific training activities but frequently cut short on programs to switch to a new industry hot topic. Recently it seems that there was a push to have people transition to different roles for "personal growth" reasons even if that was not a desire of the individual.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For the most part you have hired bright / talented individuals that make positive contributions to the company. Consider not trying to force individuals to make career changes under the guise of personal development.

    At Avery Dennison I watched them try so hard to lean out everything to death while keeping too many chiefs on staff.

    Pros

    They offered good training and fair vacation. Good working conditions and decent pay. Workers were encouraged to offer ideas to make things better.

    Cons

    There were too many managers around while the workers were hounded to produce higher production numbers. People who were willing to work fast became expected to work hard all the time.
