I have been working at Avery Dennison full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Training, education and business travel are encouraged and supported by management. Innovation, professional growth and upgrades to technology are ongoing and there is a strong team of colleagues in the Corporate HQ.

Cons

Transition time presents physical and professional challenges during downsizing, reorganizing, restructuring of the corporate office model and environment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More meetings and communication would be welcome during this challenging period in the company's growth.

    I worked at Avery Dennison full-time

    Pros

    - Opportunities to travel
    - Pretty good benefits and employee engagement activities
    - Interesting innovations
    - Beautiful headquarters campus
    - Flexibility in working arrangements (remote work, etc.)

    Cons

    - There seemed to be reorg-s happening every other month, and everything was just rumors until the announcements hit
    - Too hierarchical/top-heavy/title inflation
    - Really had to fight for own professional development; unless you were being groomed for a certain role, you were basically ignored

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Poor strategy has led to many talented folks leaving the company, whether by their own accord or because they didn't fit into the latest organizational model.
