    I worked at Adobe

    Pros

    Good facility, great office, good infrastructure though they can expand and have bigger infrastructure catering to more number of employees. Work-life balance is good and a lot depend on you manager too.

    Cons

    Very flexible as far as the company policies go but as is with every other MNCs in India, operations is often the most targeted cost-center.
    A lot is given in the hands of management without any written rules.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more transparent in processes in operations. Cost cutting is not done at the cost of ESAT. Management should be carefully chosen

    Pros

    Give you huge salaries but environment is very bad

    Cons

    Bad environment
    People praise the company as they have no other place to go
    Everyone I know is working because of some liabilities they have.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and let them take a leave if they have some serious issues.

    Former Employee - Senior Manager in Greater Noida (India)

    I worked at Adobe full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay for most people, as Adobe strives to get best talent
    Relaxed working culture and it is entirely up to the individual if he wants to take on more
    Good brand and product, and that helps employees to get a edge in the jobs market after working here.
    Proud association as the company has done some path breaking things in the software market in the past years.

    Cons

    Lack of thought leaders as I have seen decisions being made on the fly and that leaves a lot unstructured and at risk
    Diplomatic management who will shy away from being candid about anything to do with your growth and career and tend to keep things grey at all times. There is a desire that they walk the talk...lot of gyan on being a employer of choice but when things get tough , I have been given the run around and flowery words with no action.
    People dependent to the extent that work may stop because someone key is on a vacation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would like to see a more capable leadership and stable decision makers with actual skills and not hit or miss approach.

    I worked at Adobe full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Worked in Adobe for about 2 years, the pros are good pay, good food, not much work pressure and some good opportunity to learn different things.

    Cons

    extremely bad management. Old products are changed to provide new User Interface and sell them in market. Not fair review cycle. The presumption about certain people stays forever even if they are not performing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs to judge people by their current performance not by past achievements. And please stop selling the old wine in new bottle by marketing strategy.

    They pay you nicely and have a good work atmosphere.
