    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.
