New HR Mgmt took over and was not involved at all and team went downhill
Talent Acquisition Manager (Former Employee), Brea, CAAugust 19, 2014
New HR Director came in and failed to be involved in anything other than issues that arose. Without a leader the teams went astray and were left to their own devices. Poor leadership

On the whole working for Avery was a good experience.
Senior Computer Operator (Former Employee), Concord, OHJuly 15, 2014
Pros: satifying work
Cons: no career path.
The processing had been automated by the ROBOT software system. So a typical day was to monitor a number of systems, contact support personnel when needed, and report distribution.
The most important thing I learned was to remain involved in a problem until the problem was resolved. This was especially important when dealing with users. An operator – more... must stay involved until he finds out that a user's problem has been resolved. I also learned it was good to get acquainted the programmers, tech support personnel, and even some accountants in or to better understand what the needed from operations. As far as management goes, I think things were the best when Tech Support was in charge of the data center. I learned the most and had the best opportunities when I had a Tech Support manager. The hardest
part of the job was month end processing. Closing would start Sunday morning and could last until first shift operators came in the next morning. The most enjoyable part of the job came towards the end of my tenure at Avery. I was allowed to do some system programming projects for Tech Support. For instance I wrote a program that would use Gumbo software to convert AS/400 generated reports to PDF files. The PDF files would then be automatically emailed to the users by the AS/400. – less

Digital Prepress Operator/Department Lead (Former Employee), Greensboro, NCMay 14, 2014
Pros: great pay and benefits.
Cons: sending too many jobs overseas.
Was there 18 1/2 years. In many ways I grew up there. I learned how to work with others in a spirit of cooperation.

The hardest part of the job is losing it. Getting laid off because your position is going overseas is tough to hear, but it opened the door for my newly-earned education, so I guess it worked out okay.

My immediate manager was amazing. She made my job pleasant even during stressful times.
Executive Assistant (Former Employee), Westlake Village, CAFebruary 9, 2014
Pros: big celebrations for employees, close knit group, fair salary
Cons: office moved more than an hour away through bad traffic
A typical day started with cleaning out the mornings emails. This set the tone for how busy the day would become. I learned to balance my work load and prioritize to prevent things from dropping through the cracks.

My co-workers were dedicated and very focused. There was very little if any goofing off during the day. The office was at least an hour – more... from Corporate headquarters and only a couple of executives located in the office. This gave the office a family feel and garnered major loyalty.

The hardest part of the day was stopping whatever project I was working with and go home. Some of the projects were not only challenging but gave a major sense of accomplishment once done. – less
