    * Benefits & compensation are competitive
    * Site leaders plan events to make us feel included and part of one company
    * Intriguing mix of employees, via many acquisitions ... everyone from corporate folks to creative folks; it's a nice blend


    * Lots of long-term employees can mean obduracy ... "This is how we do things here." Running a business unit via oligarchy is risky. Without fresh opinions, how can you know you're not seriously off track?
    * Little chance for promotion or mobility because of low attrition at the top
    * Senior-manager-heavy: we are having trouble hiring younger people, and some of our key talent isn't that far from retirement
    * PTO policy *sounds* great, but many managers discourage you from taking time off
    * Some truly abysmal people managers who have little experience running teams but who are given no motivation or resources to change their ways.
    * Everyone seems burned out most of the time. No one smiles any more. If you say 'good morning' in the hallway, people wince because they're afraid you're going to ask for something they don't have time to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Many employees seem to feel 'locked in' because of generous benefits, equity, and flexible working locations. What will you do when that isn't enough to hold them? Start creating serious succession plans, as well as a multi-year talent retention and acquisition plan. The next generation doesn't want to work for Adobe. Reverse that trend before it's too late.
