A company on the decline with little opportunity for career advancement, unfavorable work/life balance and low salaries.

Senior Process Engineer (Former Employee)
Mentor, OH

ProsAvery will provide a job but not much in the area of career. If one is looking for work and desires to reside in the greater Cleveland area, it is an "ok" place to seek employment.

ConsThey are typically not a good paying company. They are struggling to stay affloat due to excess capacity in the pressure sensitive market. One of the ways they are offsetting losses is by annually off-loading salaries that are at or above $80K annually and hiring younger, local talent from the nearby schools and universities. If you are not a senior level manager and your salary is at or above $80K, you will be targeted in their "right-sizing/restructuring" efforts.Work life balance is a challenge as well as they are doing more with less people. A declining market along with cost out efforts over the past decade have led to this approach which has resulted in many Process Engineers, Team Leaders and Managers in Operations experiencing "burnout" after 2-3 yrs in their respective roles. Diversity is also lacking at senior level management positions. It only exists at lower level/subordinate positions. They have recently undergone lawsuits for age, gender and racial discrimination (2001, 2003, and 2005) in which they were found liable and/or payed an undisclosed sum in settlements. I would not reccommned this company, particulary the Northeast Ohio Operations, to anyone seeking employment with a company that will value work/life balance or that is looking for a "career home" with whoch they could retire.

Advice to Senior ManagementWork life balance must be improved, more competitive salaries offered and diversity improved at "Senior" level managment positions.

– I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
