I have been working at Avery Dennison full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Awesome people here; very easy to work with, good team work, low stress

Cons

It's a large corporation. You see where all your works goes and why it matters, but at the same time it seems that the company does not know where it is going, or you don't know where you are moving.

Advice to Management

Personal Reviews of status of projects, better idea where team members fit in.

    I worked at Avery Dennison full-time

    Pros

    Used to be a friendly, team-oriented company but that changed in the last 3 years. Good benefits in terms of 401K, medical plans.

    Cons

    Micro managed, political, no retirement plan. I would not by stocks anymore in this company. the CEO will take a large raise and stock option while the workers get negligible or no raises. Company is divesting and downsizing. They just cut 25% of Corporate, are trying to sell 1/3 or the company (Office Products - this is public knowledge) and they keep cutting the IT departments frequently and working them like slaves. No real future here if you want to work in those areas.

    Advice to Management

    Suggest consideration of your employees, rather than just how much profit you can pocket. We call it "Slavery" Dennison for a reason.


  2. "Know what you are getting into."

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to move between divisions, if the desire is there. Career ladder was pretty well laid out and a good work/life balance was evident and respected.

    Cons

    It seemed that in IT, if you did not want to end up in Corporate HQ, you could get 'stuck' at a divisional IT Manager level. Also, each division seemed like it's own company - one division could be cutting headcount to make quarterly numbers, but the guys across the street were popping champagne corks.

    Advice to Management

    Making quarterly numbers at a division level dictated many important decisions, especially for smaller divisions.
