    Pros

    The profile that Avery offers me is great for the carrier development and best learning opportunities.
    It gives me the good opportunities to implement my ideas and views. The environment and culture of AD is good.

    Cons

    Not getting the same platform as compare to US and UK employee. The global appearance of Indian employee in AD India is very less as compare to the Other which carries the same potential.

    I have been working at Avery Dennison

    Pros

    In this profile, you are treated with quite some respect and there are a lot of expectations
    The exposure is quite good as compared to other management trainee profiles
    Very open to new ideas

    Cons

    The profile deserves a bit more compensation than they offer in India. I guess the profile has good packages in Avery elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Standardize the pay package for a profile irrespective of location.
    Levy more responsibility on Asian nations.
    Can utilize the GOLD profile more and in a better way.

    Pros

    Great career opportunities to move up within the organization, but prepare to put in some long hours. Great benefits, 401K, and vacation policy.

    Cons

    The workload is sometimes overwhelming. The corporate team, sales team, and operations team lack trust in each other. Decisions are always second guessed

    I have been working at Avery Dennison full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Working for the company has been such an amazing experience, from senior level executives to interns within the workforce, all employees are driven, excited and progressive in how they contribute solutions to our company success. We're a company of 26,000 globally, but move at the pace of a startup...and I love that about the company.

    Cons

    I don't really have a con so I"m going to type this sentence so Glassdoor allows me to submit my review. Thanks and peace be with you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to facilitate innovation and collaboration. Our senior leadership team is already making an impact, from the new corporate location to engaging with our employees globally. We have an amazing CEO, CHRO, CLO, CIO, etc. I couldn't ask for better leadership.
