I have been working at Avery Dennison full-time

Pros

Nice people at non-executive level.

Cons

Used to have work-life balance, now it's just talk. Micromanaged to death, any decision making at lower levels can be overturned at any moment thus no empowerment at lower levels. Difficult to get promoted, promotions are very subjective.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't talk out of both sides of your mouth on work/life balance, promotions, strategies. Actions need to back up words and strategies put in place need to live for a bit, constant change makes employees panicky as they can never trust what they're being told.

    I worked at Avery Dennison full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits, vacation and holiday schedule, flexible scheduling. Many opportunities to learn and expand skills and abilities through working with crossfunctional teams, global team members, and special projects. Very supportive of employees pursuing new opportunities within the company and in the relocation process.

    Cons

    Not a "family type" atmosphere; due to continued "re-structuring/organizing" activities, you constantly worry whether or not you will have employment the next week. Talented employees are either lost through the restructure or to pursue new opportunities due to the lean structure and long work hours. Work-free vacations and weekends rarely exist either as it is the norm to always have your phone/email on and be available. Do not plan to retire from here---learn and move on.
