    I worked at Avery Dennison full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    People, fun industry, travel. I enjoyed the first 5-7 years of my employment.

    Cons

    No work-life balance, high stress, little room for advancement, low morale which causes negative work environment

    Advice to Management

    Company needs to work on succession plans for all levels of the organization and be open and honest with employees about their potential. Reorganization and eliminating jobs is often necessary but when this happens you need to strongly look at what you will take off the functional plates. Continuing to pile work on employees causes burnout, stress, health issues and low engagement. After leaving I realized how overworked the sales team, support staff, and other functions really were.

    I worked at Avery Dennison full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good 401k Matching and Contributing. Advancement if you enjoy politics.

    Cons

    Cliquish and built around a Good Ol' Boys club. Lots of young professionals making bonuses for entrenched staff. New staff are hazed.

    Advice to Management

    Employee morale is exceptionally low because the company reorganizes so often. Most staff I interacted with made it clear leadership does not acknowledge them, does not speak to them, and makes changes without regard for how it impacts workflow. Also, outsourcing and offshoring is not the answer to every problem.

    I worked at Avery Dennison full-time

    Pros

    Great pay, benefits, flexibility if you need to go to the doctor for example, overall nice people. The job is what you make of it.

    Cons

    Not much room to advance, mentoring from managers almost non existent, not a team environment, rarely recognized for accomplishments.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize employee accomplishments. Stop placing people with no experience with the industry in high stress positions with a workload that is so overwhelming it slows down other experienced employees.

    I worked at Avery Dennison full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice colleagues and strong financial incentive packages

    Cons

    Allow managers to persist who are horrible people that destroy those around them.

    Lack of mentorship

    Very old style of management, hire and fire cycles, how much time you spend in your seat correlates to how good of an employee you are.

    Advice to Management

    Get with the times. People want to work in a place that inspires them, not saps their motivation and stresses them out. Revisit what leadership are valued in management.

    I have been working at Avery Dennison full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with, very capable. Lots of opportunities for career shaping if you take initiative. Good development opportunities, they give you responsibility.

    Cons

    Work life balance is tough, everyone has a lot on their plate. At times it's been tough to feel like you have an impact because of changes within the organization, can get frustrating.
