    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 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.

    Pros

    Global Company that is very diverse and treats everyone fairly from the boardroom to the shop floor. People tend to stay for 10 + years . Avery Dennison is great about recognizing and promoting talent from within. Cares greatly about CSR.

    Cons

    A bit of turn over recently due to down markets . Because for the global aspect there tends to be lots of travel

    Advice to Management

    Stick with a strategy for a bit longer to see it through before re adjusting. Invest more in innovation and think about long term profits.
