I have been working at Avery Dennison full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Avery painesville at one time was thr best place to work. The management in the 70's 80's and 90's involved the employees on team to deal with issues (FEA members). In 2000's Avery went degree for all management from teamleader up and thats when it went sour.

Cons

Micro managed, misleading on issues, no retirement or benifits when you leave in the future from avery. I would not by stocks anymore in this company. the CEO will take a large raise and stock option while the workers on the floor didn't get a raise for a couple of years.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hope that Stan Avery cannot get out of his grave because you all will most likely loose your jobs. Look at the OSHA and labor laws closer and start following them to be a better place to work

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

    Pros

    Great people. Coworkers (the ones that have chosen to stay among the turmoil) are fantastic.
    Leadership sometimes gives their LA Clippers/Lakers/Kings tickets to employees.
    Opportunity for international travel

    Cons

    Leadership does not communicate business direction.
    Layoffs always around the corner, very stressful.
    Re-organization and re-structuring 2+ times per year.
    Hard to do process improvements with shrinking budget.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share your vision for the direction of this company. A lot of us are worried, and are not getting any answers.

    I worked at Avery Dennison full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The rank and file employees that are currently there generally love the company and put forth 100% effort.

    Cons

    The Executive team is seriously old-school, with backward views on brand management and human resources. The company has recently dissolved it's corporate research center, is sustainability group and its corporate communications group. The CEO is trying to sell off the company piece by piece.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Read some contemporary management books, i.e., Good to Great. Avery Dennison fits squarely within the parameters of companies bound for failure, which is sad.
