    I worked at Avery Dennison full-time

    Pros

    I enjoyed most of the people I worked with at Avery. Most people start at entry level so there is always room for advancement.

    Cons

    There is quite a large turnover, hence the ability to advance. This, though produces problems of extra overtime, and untrained workers. This is also in the management. My wife said leaving here was the best thing to happen to me in years. I wouldn't go that far, but it must have been hard on her too.

    Advice to Management

    The corporation as a whole seems to be doing well, this plant seems to be an isolated black hole. There do not appear to be too many happy production people working here, they always speak of the better days in the past. Great opportunity here though.

    Pros

    Open people and structures, easy to talk to everybody on each level. Professional approach of projects and among each others. And we had our moments of fun and laughing. Recommendable to work here.

    Cons

    Nothing you could not talk about in direct conversation to get sorted out.

    I worked at Avery Dennison full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits, great training ground, you'll work with highest quality people. Close knit industry, so the people you meet while working at Avery Dennison are people you will network with the rest of your career!

    Cons

    The company reorganizes constantly! Can you weather the storm? They recruited me, moved me to OH and then less than 6 months later reorganized and eliminated my job. Nothing to do with me, they kept me in a different role. Then 6 months later they decided the original role was better for me and switched back. They used to promote from within...but they also churn people out

    Advice to Management

    Find some stability...you'll get more out of your employees. Show more loyalty.

    I have been working at Avery Dennison full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I've been blessed to have been with Avery Dennison for many years and had exposure to some of the top managers during this time. I have been regularly impressed with their desire to do the right thing and live up to the stated company values. They fail at times as individuals, they have blindspots or act too quickly, but generally they work hard at satisfying the customer and respecting the interests of the employees.

    Cons

    - Reach for workforce reductions too quickly and with too broad a focus. The interest is to cut costs but there is no financial target, the goal is headcount regardless of where it comes from.
    - Too many decisions made without factual backup, reliance on gut feel.
