    Pros

    - Laid back atmosphere that promotes a fantastic work/life balance. - Phenomenal benefits--from the health plans, to flexible vacation policy, and set company breaks. - Great coworkers. - There is a push to redefine what Adobe is from the inside out with varying success. - you feel like your contribution matters. Leaner teams mean you have more impact on the company (and project) bottom line.

    Cons

    - Vision is sometimes lacking from above (or at least not clearly communicated to staff). - Sometimes difficult to work on what you want (or were hired for) - Inertia in older codebases (and defined process around the application) can be difficult to overcome. - There is a drive to adhere to Scrum even when it sometimes doesn't fit the project goals.

    Advice to Management

    - Define that clear vision that motivates your teams. Understand that changing direction often can confuse and demotivate. - Realize that development methodologies aren't one size fits all. - Push to simplify both the process and the system. Adding process for process sake is a dangerous path that leads to immobility. Allow engineers to reduce complexity and debt whenever possible.
