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

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, with a very formal annual review. You know where you stand.

    Cons

    Way too many reorganizations, and way too many Harvard MBAs that know everything, but end up being like a tornado...leaving a trail of destruction behind before they disappear.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit making personnel decisions based on Quarterly financial results.

    I worked at Avery Dennison (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Had plenty of opportunity to advance and grow through the organization if willing to put in the effort.
    Pay scale was fair comparative to other businesses in the area.

    Cons

    At times company would be very high on specific training activities but frequently cut short on programs to switch to a new industry hot topic. Recently it seems that there was a push to have people transition to different roles for "personal growth" reasons even if that was not a desire of the individual.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For the most part you have hired bright / talented individuals that make positive contributions to the company. Consider not trying to force individuals to make career changes under the guise of personal development.
