    Pros

    Decent Benefits including paid time off, insurance, best doctors, and various free health testing. Fair income for the type of industry.

    Cons

    Need to continuously look at competition for advancement opportunities and income comparison. Very little mentorship, but one can advance internally with an Avery mindset and the right connections.

    Advice to Management

    Survey current employees for skills that are under utilized and better suited for alternate positions.

    I have been working at Avery Dennison full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Profitable Fortune 500 with opportunity for growth. Lean corporate team so opportunity to be involved with many aspects of the business. Diverse business portfolio with products touching many industries. Opportunity for personal growth, at least in the communications team.

    Cons

    Lots of business restructuring despite being a profitable company. Corporate a very lean team, so there is a lot of work and not much time to start/create new projects. Most new positions are contractor so it's hard to achieve long term continuity. Basically only cost of living raises and no bonuses outside of high level executives.

    Advice to Management

    Fewer contractor staff. Provide bonuses or more substantial salary increases for productive employees.

    I have been working at Avery Dennison full-time

    Pros

    Everyone that I met at Avery Dennison was very nice and helpful. The compensation package is very nice as well.

    Cons

    Avery Dennison has a very strong work culture and environment. They tend to only hire people that fit their mold and they miss out on top talent.

    Advice to Management

    Their should be more opportunities to move up in this company. Their is a lot of ficus on the leadership development program and not other employees.

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

    Pros

    Pay was good, T shirts, and milestone marking good. Leadership principles were good words but not followed. The idea is present for a good business.

    Cons

    Always tearing down what was established instead of building on it. Not really gaining any benefit from constant rehash of same problem solving.

    Advice to Management

    Quit Rockstar mentality, destruction not equal to innovation.

    Pros

    Just started working for the company and so far, no complaints. Great benefits and 401k!

    Cons

    Not enough employees at current location so more work is put on select employees and pay is below other ink companies.
