I have been working at Avery Dennison full-time

Pros

Nice people at non-executive level.

Cons

Used to have work-life balance, now it's just talk. Micromanaged to death, any decision making at lower levels can be overturned at any moment thus no empowerment at lower levels. Difficult to get promoted, promotions are very subjective.

Advice to Management

Don't talk out of both sides of your mouth on work/life balance, promotions, strategies. Actions need to back up words and strategies put in place need to live for a bit, constant change makes employees panicky as they can never trust what they're being told.

    I worked at Avery Dennison full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The people I worked with were awesome and we were all doing everything we could to keep the company alive while the upper management insisted on tearing it down. Benefits were very good and life/work balance was very good.

    Cons

    Upper management has no clue about running a printing company.
