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

    Pros

    Employees are talented. Hard working. Pay is average. Great work with community outreach.

    Cons

    The leadership team wastes company money traveling around the world for no reason. The company tries to claim they believe in female diversity however the top tier of female leaders (with the exception of one in finance) unless your in their "social click" will do everything in their power to beat you down (especially if your a female) and take credit for your hard work. It's a Corporate political nightmare and their Finance leader should take a good hard look at budgets and the many many layers of VPs in each function.

    Advice to Management

    Take time to truly understand how employees feel about their leaders. Don't do this through the leaders again either- of course they will hide the truth.

    Pros

    Some good people are at Avery who are very helpful

    Cons

    Leadership changes frequently is driven exclusively by numbers each quarter. Very cut-throat environment that has set a culture of individuals making decisions for their own personal gain versus for the better of the company.

    Pros

    Good technical talent in some areas that can mass produce high volumes of products for the market.

    Cons

    Senior management is mostly poor and consumed by internal politics. The senior team has poorly invested in developing future offerings and is losing business.

    Advice to Management

    Change out the management team and get internal IT systems that support rather than burden employees. Bring in outside management talent and don't let the incumbent managers continue to drive this company into the ground.

    Pros

    Here, we can learn so many things, processes, and as the part of MT program it is one privilege to be close with the top management. For those of you who are willing to learn after graduating without considering salaries, this is one good place.

    Cons

    - Very poor compensation and benefits rate. As a huge global company, they don't pay you for what you deserve. - Management only appreciate the people who are willing to do according to what they want, not what actually is needed in the actual field. Meaning, you don't need to be very smart or to be very innovative by inventing what is necessary for the actual problems, but instead you just need to do what the management says, although you may feel it as ineffective or inaccurate - Management consists of bosses, not leaders - They don't listen, they assume. - Some jobs might make your work-life balance suffered a lot, and you might be very stressful while dealing with the people
