I have been working at Avery Dennison full-time for 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.

    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.
