    Excellent company and culture.

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great culture, supportive management, excellent training program and the people treat you like family. Pay could be better initially but there is room to grow if you are willing to be flexible and cross-train in other areas. Set shift and schedule make for a great work/life balance .

    Cons

    Tend to pay less than other manufacturers, but assume that depends on the position you start in. Entry level pay below average but worth it if you want to escape the monotony of retail jobs or physical labor.

    Very large company culture, for better or worse.

    Nov 16, 2022 - Business Development Manager 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Seemed to be a professionally managed company that understood the value of keeping employees reasonably satisfied via active HR policies around fair treatment, lack of discrimination and other social values that I think are important. And their continued good and often-improving earnings over many years despite their public image as a boring "label" company demonstrates good strategic innovation and acquisitions savvy. And their benefits package was very good for a US based company.

    Cons

    I worked for a medium-sized privately run technology company which Avery acquired began to manage in early 2020. I thought they were poor at understanding and actually valuing the core strengths of the company they had acquired, and so they have experienced pretty high turnover among my former associates. I think this is typical of very large companies, which is why I have never wanted to work for very large companies.

    Tech needs a lot of governance - its a mess

    Nov 2, 2022 - Anonymous Employee 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Good stable org. Some work life balance. Market leadership in a few areas.

    Cons

    Internal processes are decades old and very hard to change. Technology space in the organization is a complete mess. There are Business Tech Culture: Units (BUs) and BU within a BU. And then there is a Corporate Tech org. Each one of these have some namesake leaders and they are all in power hunger. Bureaucracy runs amok. Nothing is standardized. Roles and responsibilities do not exist. The CIO should make firm and strict governance protocols. And all tech should ultimately fold into him without the nonsense power hunger at each level of BUs. BUs want freedom (read power) in implementing their own way. Upper Level BUs have their own tech leadership who think they own the lower BU's governance. And Corporate pushes their own agenda in the name of guidelines. Some (almost all) of these leaders want to provide the "tech services" to the entire org/BU through their "preferred" partners. Tech Pay: Tech salaries are WAY SUB-STANDARD compared to the market. Some changes are being done on that with recent hires getting better (still lower to industry) pay. But existing employees who have been here long enough, don't get their pay bettered. Of course, they leave after a while, taking all the knowledge with them. Org Diversity: There is a consistent talk about Diversity and Inclusion, but execution is very poor. People bring their own people they know/worked with in the past. Inclusion is hard for people with different backgrounds.
