A company that contributes to the Earth's landfill
Artworker (Former Employee) –  Nottingham, Nottinghamshire2 April 2019
Ethically distasteful. This company is trying to apply a plaster to a gaping wound. The managing directors may as well be the four horsemen (or women) of the apocalypse. Contributes to, along with the fashion industry, an environmental and ecological catastrophe. Not to mention cheap human labour, although they may see it as contributing to their economy. But really it's exploitation of cheap labour. Fashion is the 2nd highest polluter of the world to oil. Spreadsheets from fashion brands of animal species around the world are disturbing. No wonder there is animal extinction. If you can live with yourself it's an okay company.
Pros
free food
Cons
world pollution and water famine

Avery recently moved to a quality new office in the middle of Nottingham, but it has moved much work off shore and this has a big effect on your working day.
Pros
Free Tea / Coffee
Cons
You only really work with people who are off shore

A good place to work if depending on position within the company
Machine Operator (Current Employee) –  Cramlington, Northumberland18 May 2017
Hard work in the area I am in work. Two person job done by one and there are similar jobs here but other areas are easy and a lot more relaxed. Management is not the best, their attitude to different operators is puzzling and I was put in an area with little chance of advancement. and high pressure.
Pros
Shifts are geat
Cons
Management, pay poor

Collaborative environment & room to grow
Market Development (Former Employee) –  UK23 February 2017
- Each day was varied as I had the opportunity through my role to work on multiple projects at the same time within different areas such as marketing, process improvement or new product launches.
- I learned a great deal about team leadership, mentoring, presenting skills, project management, networking, collaborating across global locations, working remotely and much more.
- The most challenging part of the job was coordinating projects and tasks with globally located teams.
- The most enjoyable part was working with great team mates, achieving results to be proud of and always learning and growing.

Poor Management
Sales (Former Employee) –  London24 January 2017
Inefficient Management. Many Junior and mid level staff are leaving the company. Lack of training. They do not train their interns and expect them to understand everything.

UK Territory Manager (Former Employee) –  Wooburn, ENG9 April 2014
A great deal of variety of working with high street retailers such as M&S, Next, Matalan to the rag trade distributors, engaging with people at all levels.
Although I already considered myself to have excellent commercial acumen the Key Account Management and sales training helped to enhance these skills.
Team ethics were high on Avery Dennisons values and this helped to develop a very positive environment in a multi-cultural operation.
The most challenging aspect was defending business against inferior imported products however promoting the quality of the brand and total support Avery offered was a very useful defense mechanism
Pros
People Who I worked With
Cons
None

Valued team member working in a friendly and productive environment
Deputy Team Leader (Former Employee) –  Raunds12 May 2013
Two tier shift system which entailed a 15 minute handover period to identify priorities for the shift in hand. Start of shift meeting with team members to allocate duties in order of urgency. Supervision of workload throughout the shift to ensure deadlines are met when Team Leader. When covering planning, reporting previous day's performance and planning on an ongoing basis for future production. As a machine operator I would set up the machine and run output as per planning instructions.

I learned to be flexible in my approach to work enabling me to perform various roles within the team.

The hardest part of the job was to let the customer down by not delivering to their needs.

The most enjoyable part of my job was working in a happy, but productive environment where everyone felt valued.
Pros
Private healthcare entitlement
Cons
Night Shifts
