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.

    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.
