Backward management, slow motion train wreck

Graphic Designer (Former Employee)
Pasadena, CA (US)

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

ProsThe rank and file employees that are currently there generally love the company and put forth 100% effort.

ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementRead some contemporary management books, i.e., Good to Great. Avery Dennison fits squarely within the parameters of companies bound for failure, which is sad.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
