    Pros

    Great pay, annual reviews, which have resulted in raises every year.
    Free snacks & drinks
    Great healthcare that is basically free
    Two Vacation weeks per year
    Great PTO that can be cashed out

    It is a large company, so there is red tape and strong segregation between departments.

    Pros

    At Adobe, the people make the company. Everyone is so smart and works so hard, yet no one is stuck up or afraid to let loose.

    Cons

    After a while, the Adobe cafeteria loses its magic and everything starts to taste the same. And the sushi is too expensive.

    Pros

    There is unlimited opportunity to grow your career at Adobe and management encourages employees to stretch outside of their areas of comfort to discover their potential.

    The people are fantastic - you will never work with higher quality more engaged employees than you will at Adobe. At all levels, it is as important how you do what you do and that truly makes Adobe stand apart.

    The passion for the products can't be beat. Every person is an Adobe ambassador and you can really feel the product love here.

    Cons

    It is a big company and with big company comes big structure and process. Thankfully Adobe encourages us to challenge process and structure to think about how we could do the work differently.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work growing and developing leaders from within. I love seeing my friends grow into leadership roles and it gave me confidence that I could develop along that same path at Adobe.
