No opinion of CEO

Pros

Compensation, benefits and flexibility for time off. Fellow employees are hardworking and personable. Multiple divisions without much overlap. Easy to move among the divisions. Many opportunities within the U.S. Opportunities to work with a very diverse customer base. Not many quality issues with the products. Supportive managers (generally).

Cons

15 years behind in IT technology. Frequent mid level management changes. Generally, good company and division strategies are put in place, but never anything truly innovative. Always a follower of bigger and better Fortune 500 companies. Execution is usually extremely poor. Truly disorganized. "Right sizing" has left morale low. One year the answer is RFID tags, the next year Paxar.

Advice to Management

The "right sizing" was done without any streamlining or technology improvements. None of your initiatives, Six Sigma, ELS or Horizon Projects, will go far with everyone focusing on work that should be automated or outsourced. Start focusing on your core markets and sell the peripheral divisions. Smaller, faster and more profitable. Move beyond sticky paper. We honestly like you, but we need a more radical vision.

    I have been working at Avery Dennison full-time

    Work-life flexibility; Multinational; Benefits for graduates.

    Cons

    Salary and holiday benefits differ too much between locations; Safety culture does a blind eyes for non "shop-floor" related issues.
