Pros

Very nice culture, training available to help you develop, international company with many opportunities. Avery Dennison created the label and has several divisions. They have an interesting interviewing process that involves Select for Success. Each interviewer has a specific Role. They offer yearly development plans and reviews.

Cons

Lean culture is not fully implemented - sometimes feels like saluting the flag. Company has changed directions several times, recently sold corporate office and moved to new open plan.

Advice to Management

Focus more on your people. Many of the people feel neglected or confused on the corporate direction.

    Pros

    Great employee morale program which provided employees with food, opportunities to socialize, and product. A good working schedule which didn't require excessive amounts of overtime or commitment to projects which suck the free time out of your life. The folks in the office were typically pleasant to work with.

    Cons

    Silo culture without a solid orientation program for new folks coming in. Not enough information about the daily details and a work breakdown structure of where to find vital information. People are held responsible for information without being told how to find that information. Management focuses more on how people are seen on a superficial level, and don't take the time to find out more about the skillset of the people they've hired so too many people stagnate in jobs where they could shine.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of focusing on the superficial look and demeanor of your employees, find out how they can help you make your company a stronger place to work. Create a mentoring program for new employees with a "daily tips" program which will help employees get a strong base of how everything is done on a daily basis and who to go to in order to get information.
