    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.

    Pros

    Good salary, very flexible schedule with a lot of benefits, nice bonuses and good team. Managers are very professional and easy-going.

    Cons

    Sometimes I have problems with customers and that’s why I really felt myself in trouble. Working long hours, that’s what I really don’t like.

    Advice to Management

    You need to pay attention on your customers, because sometimes they tend to be rather rude. You should take care of your employees.

    Global, profitable company. Great hard-working people.

    IT is an afterthought. Dated technology and not a lot of structure. Talk about IT innovation and digital revolution but no action. Most IT investments based on what is the cheapest rather what is right. Very reactive.

    Wake up and understand that IT can be a growth engine.

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

    Pros

    The organization continually promotes safety as a value. They have many good people working for them, but in 18 months, I was one of only two managers left at the site. six managers were replaced or left for other opportunities.

    Cons

    The turnover in EHS is less than 2 years on average. I was let go after 18 months, no cause was given other than my manager wanted a change. I was provided a two week severance, after relocating my family 18 months prior.
