    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.

    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.

    I worked at Avery Dennison full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    not a lot of high pressure, good people to work with

    Cons

    they fall behind with technology, lack of feasibility in project management (biting off more than they can chew), disregard for process improvement over pet projects, lack of research before making big business decisions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make less use of consultants that know less about your business and structure than inside personnel. Learn the benefits of cost effective process improvement regardless of long term uncertainty structure changes.

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

    Pros

    Excellent company to work for and invest in as a career with opportunities for advancement. Professional and supportive managers and co-workers with a can do attitude that creates an environment to get the job done. Collaborative and team based work environment. Some of the best people you can ask for to work with. Very ethical company. Great healthcare and 401K benefits.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is basically mostly work so expect to put in the extra hours if you are in the field. This is not always bad thing especially if you enjoy what you do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Since the Avery Graphics division was merged with Avery LPM there has been some "teething issues" meaning that the LPM group still needs to fully understand how the Graphics division functions, it's challenges and opportunities, and be open to constructive input from it's employees.

    I have been working at Avery Dennison as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    This is a great place to start your career with plenty of room to grow and relocate (if you so wish). As a large company, there are decent benefits and compensation. The work environment is driven and leadership pushes for results.

    Cons

    The higher up-the-ladder you look, the more stressed and overworked the employees become. Everyone is very busy with their own schedule (lots of meetings), that the culture feels anxious.

    I have been working at Avery Dennison full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Challenging projects, good benefits, great financial support from corporate HQ.

    Cons

    The leadership team was assembled from transfers within Avery Dennison. Most have a label converting background. None understood the complexity of what was being manufactured and really didn't care. If you want to report to someone that doesn't understand the product or what you do, this is the place to work!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Division leaders should be from the electronics industry, NOT the converting industry. You're building an electronic component! Not a label.
