Former Employee - Quality Manager in Clinton, SC

I worked at Avery Dennison as a contractor (less than an year)

Pros

Been around a long time.
Some work is federal contracts

Cons

Toxic Corporate Environment ("Buddy System" permeates, cliquish)
Dishonest about US assignments especially those they're sending to Mexico and China.
Do not train!...
Middle, Entrenched management are threatened by initiative from subordinates and often finds ways to dismiss the best people.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Honesty IS STILL the BEST Policy. If you only need a temporary employee, be decent enough to..
1)Hire them direct instead of using 3rd party employers
2)Tell them UP front.."We need someone for just two weeks BUT it could be longer or we might need you in another part of the plant". That way, the prospective employee would know for sure going in. (Do unto others as you would have done unto you)
3)Analyze and evalutate your middle management for signs of "feather bedding"

Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

    There is an increasing use of off-shore contractors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My immediate managers are doing a good job with what they are given, but upper management is not executing well.
