I worked at Avery Dennison

Pros

Lots of opportunity to move between divisions, if the desire is there. Career ladder was pretty well laid out and a good work/life balance was evident and respected.

Cons

It seemed that in IT, if you did not want to end up in Corporate HQ, you could get 'stuck' at a divisional IT Manager level. Also, each division seemed like it's own company - one division could be cutting headcount to make quarterly numbers, but the guys across the street were popping champagne corks.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Making quarterly numbers at a division level dictated many important decisions, especially for smaller divisions.

    Pros

    relaxed culture....but hard working. Majority of people are good people who care about business and co-workers.

    Cons

    Pay and promotions not clear or consistent

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote managers who understand that leading is a privilege and their role is to teach those around them to be better employees not to yell at them if they do not get what want.

    Pros

    Hands down, the culture. The best environment I've ever worked for. Love the people and open atmosphere. Not a lot of politics, more about making good sound business decisions. People treat business as if it were their own money they were spending when making decisions but spend money when necessary.

    Cons

    Have to move for promotions usually which can be difficult on families however they offer a lot of consideration around this at each business unit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should have all lines of business aligned. Two lines of business are not up with current day process and procedures so some change management needs to take place.
