I worked at Avery Dennison full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Very good training ground. Thisis a good job as your first one out of biz school. Very focused on cross functional teams. Will help you become a general manager or entrepreneur at some point in your career.

Cons

After about 5 years it tends to be "up or out" and for 90% it means out. It gets snarky and political as the pyramid gets very narrow very quickly. Pay is lower than 1st tier marketing firms like Pepsi.

    Seemingly decent organization but with poor upper management overview.

    I worked at Avery Dennison full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good benefits and bonus program.

    Cons

    Upper management does not have a grasp of what is happening on the day to day levels of the organization. Low levels of severance when employees are rif'ed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sound business and cost based decisions, even if they are difficult. Doing what is easiest for management on a daily basis is not the way to conduct business.

    I worked at Avery Dennison full-time

    Pros

    Used to be a friendly, team-oriented company but that changed in the last 3 years. Good benefits in terms of 401K, medical plans.

    Cons

    Micro managed, political, no retirement plan. I would not by stocks anymore in this company. the CEO will take a large raise and stock option while the workers get negligible or no raises. Company is divesting and downsizing. They just cut 25% of Corporate, are trying to sell 1/3 or the company (Office Products - this is public knowledge) and they keep cutting the IT departments frequently and working them like slaves. No real future here if you want to work in those areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Suggest consideration of your employees, rather than just how much profit you can pocket. We call it "Slavery" Dennison for a reason.
