    I have been working at Avery Dennison full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great work life balance! Genuinely appreciates their employees and provides them the tools to succeed. All employees I interacted with so far were great and very easy to work with. Many employees here have long tenure with Avery Dennison which can show that employees are treated well.

    Cons

    The pace can get slow if you just wait for the management to assign you projects. So learning to be proactive and paving your own way for advancement is crucial.

    Advice to Management

    Create more development opportunities for the Analysts/Millennials. Millennials like to have a lot of exposure to different projects and have different expectations when it comes to career development. Recognizing this will help retain and attract the younger generation.

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

    Pros

    Generally great people to work with, competitive salary and benefits, strong processes that represent a good training ground.

    Cons

    High demand to conform to the culture, an "up or out" orientation that fosters significant churn, myopia when it comes to allocation of resources.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that diversity of opinion makes an organization stronger, and that leadership takes more than the right words to be effective.

    I have been working at Avery Dennison full-time

    Pros

    Avery is a good company overall. Good Insurance.

    Cons

    There is no opportunity for growth. Not good paid job. Overwork with no bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Care more for the talented people in the company. People are leaving the company because of overwork and lack of interest from higher management. Be transparent in decision making, open door policy shouldn't just be a policy but an everyday act.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the flexible work arrangements, keep the transparency in your communication and continue to be an advocate of diversity and inclusion. Do not let D&I the latest initiative.

    Pros

    none none none none none

    Cons

    Absolutely no leadership at at any level. Overworked and under paid. Systems are ridiculous labor intensive, inefficient monstrosities that have to have work arounds or band aids to make them semi-work there are no checks and balances and supervisors / managers have no clue about workloads there is no training and changes are implemented without notifying plants perfect example of no leadership. Production employees get very little time off and have no time for families. No chance for advancement

    Policies are not adhered to unless they fit a situation beneficial to the company if they want a different outcome then they do it employees are considered an asset just like any other piece of equipment. Policies are a joke. the company is more interested in political correctness rather then what is best for the company and employees, they also care about exorbitant bonuses and raises for the chosen few

    Advice to Management

    Leave the company and allow real leaders to lead the company to prosperity
