    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.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
