I worked at Avery Dennison full-time for 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.

Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    A genuinely nice place with pleasant people who work hard.

    Cons

    These same hard working people are generally unimaginative, set in their ways, and resistant to change. Don't expect things to change or move quickly (or maybe even at all). Proof of the adage - you can't teach an elephant to dance.
