    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

    Pros

    Summer Fridays, end of year shutdown

    Cons

    This company has a very disorganized corporate structure. Extremely lean on staffing. Because of this even at Manager level admin work is a large portion of your job. If you ever go to HR for something they give you the run around. Very hard to find out information for where to go to for this or that. Also the intranet provides minimal resources. Even if you are promoted you will still be doing all your old work because they are to cheap to backfill.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t be so penny wise and dollar foolish. The company has been very profitable the last several years, hire some additional staffing so employees can do work at their level and not be bogged down. Be clear about job responsibilities and expectations in the job post/interview. Show more appreciation for your employees.

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

    Pros

    The benefits at Avery are good for mid management and above. Safety is a big part of the day to day operations. The cleanliness is also a big focus of the operation.

    Cons

    New management, does not know how to handle critical issues. Mid management and administrative teams are expected to work longer ours and not be compensated. They promise to follow up on issue and do not.

    Advice to Management

    Team is trying to save pennies and not looking at the dollars. Do not tell employees that that company is not the best nor the worst. Who want to work for a mediocre, run of the mill company? I am looking for a company that wants to be the best at everything. I want to work for a company that people are fighting, paying to work for. Avery Dennison is currently not that company.

    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.
