  1. Very good starting compensation. But hard to advance through the trenches

    Pros

    Good benefit package. Great bonus opportunities. Advancement is another matter, as it seems the team is more important than the person.

    Cons

    Hard to advance in a regular basis. Peer reviews take some time to get recorded, which is a huge paun

    Advice to Management

    Put more interest in the history of performance than the team as a whole Which is hard to achieve as some positions have similar job descriptions

    Pros

    Great place to work. Nice benefits, nice offices, good people at the lower levels. CXO's know what they are doing and provide good company vision.

    Cons

    Management at the mid layer doesn't get along. VP's range from great to poor - involved, smart to checked out, slow or do not support employees or provide direction.Insurance is pricy.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house more often and reward those who go above an beyond. Lots of dead wood and people in positions that can't meet the minimum at other tech companies.

    Pros

    Adobe is growing rapidly, and they are a solid, stable company to work for. The benefits and compensation are really outstanding, and the people are great.

    Cons

    You have to understand and be interested in Digital Marketing to really excel here. Also, if you don't like big corporations with a lot of red tape, this isn't the place for you.

    Pros

    Great salaries and smart people. Solid company and future.

    Cons

    Stress levels can run high, and culture isn't "fun" like many silicon valley/bay area tech companies -- feels more like a big, mature software company (It's trying hard to change, though).

    Great working environment, good pay, very generous benefits and the work is not as demanding as some of the hi-tech companies.

    Cons

    A great deal of politics ... if you can navigate through it, then it is s good place for you.

    Pros

    Talented people that work well together
    A good benefit/pay package
    The company does a good job of being a responsible member of the community
    Products that are recognized and work well

    Cons

    Yearly realignment/purge makes for some insecurity for employees. Even with record profits and market share, there is downsizing.
