    I worked at Avery Dennison full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company had a lot of energy investing in the growth of their employees before January 2015. Since, that energy and drive changed.

    Cons

    Not alot of opportunity for movement upward. Not too many avenues of different positions and is getting less and less as the years move forward.

    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    Minimal supervision so no micromanagement

    Cons

    Poor internal communication. There are so many subsidiaries, that the left arm doesn't know what the right arm is doing. Poor training. Company culture is very old school.

    Advice to Management

    Get involved, don't just come in for your paycheck.

    I worked at Avery Dennison full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good salary. Even there is a 20 word minimum for this field, there is nothing else positive I could say about Avery Dennison.

    Cons

    Miserable work environment by ongoing re-structuring. Brown nosing is the only way to get ahead, not experience, expertise and ability.

    Advice to Management

    Hire some leaders that can manage people and don't need to be managed by people.

    Pros

    The only reason you want to work here is for the money. Avery truly tries to compensate you for all the personal abuse they put you through. However, if continuous disagreement with the leadership team and a President, who is simply nuts, don't scare you, and if physically and mentally you can make it through strategies going in full circles, and a continuous deterorating financial outlook, then hang in there! You will be paid a nice sum eventually to leave, no questions asked ....

    Cons

    A bi-polar President, who leads a "yes, Sir!" Team, uses the "f" word more than 10 times in a leadership team meeting and disregards employee input and expertise. A deteriorating market position. A desert of innovation paired with chaotic execution of strategy. A culture that is only marked by "fear".

    Advice to Management

    A fish always starts to stink from its head!

    Pros

    Good career opportunities and flexible culture that supports balanced work and life.

    Cons

    Like other big corporations, decisions are difficult to be made and some of decisions are made without good debates.

    Advice to Management

    We should walk the talk specifically when we say our No 1 priority is "Growth".
