    Pros

    Great company, good coworkers, great benefits. This company takes care of you, while giving you a lot of room to grow, train, and try out new things. I had a good relationship with some in upper management and felt like they cared about what was going on in their organizations.

    Cons

    The same as anywhere else you work- some uninspired middle management, old foagies hanging on not wanting to grow, double standards. Nothing inordinately different about the cons here versus other places. Your average corporate America shenanigans.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Most of the management did a fine job with that, but there were always a couple people with their ears shut.

    Pros

    Good products and good company culture. It was hard to get a job because everyone in Utah wanted to work here. That probably got worse once the new building was built.

    Cons

    Upper management had been making it harder to make money for the last couple of years since the Omniture acquisition before I left. That was strange because the Adobe Marketing Suite is going to have to grow really quickly to stay ahead of Google and IBM.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let short term stock price pushing take your eye off the long term opportunity of being a leader in Digital Marketing Optimization.

    Opportunities for internal growth and advancement were very limited.

    Advice to Management

    Look for more ways to reward top talent and provide opportunities for growth.

    Pros

    The benefits at Adobe are excellent. They really do a lot for their employees. The Adobe culture is great and I think it is getting better. The people at Adobe enjoy their jobs and it shows in interactions.

    Cons

    Very tall company and a lot of middle management feels a bit stale. I think many departments are a bit over segregated creating unnecessary levels of management and hierarchy between employees and people with real authority.

    Advice to Management

    Don't allow middle management to stay too long without progressing.

    Pros

    Good work life balance for the most part. There is a high value on PTO from upper management. Family first. Advancement opportunities if you have the drive to learn and move up. The company is still small enough to know a lot of key people up to Ops Staff.

    There is a huge push to improve the workspace on a global level and it is making it an even more enjoyable place to work.

    There is also a new welcomed push from HR to remove the annual review process. This is a huge innovated step for a company this size. It shows that HR is listening to the employees and making changes.

    Ultimately, Adobe is a great place to work because of the people I work with. I genuinely enjoy working with most of my peers. It creates a solid experience.

    Cons

    The HR policy that restricts the salary increase when you move to a new position. Too many new jobs where you completely change roles are considered "lateral" moves and thus not eligible for an appropriate salary based on the new job or stock options.

    Advice to Management

    Re-evaluate the HR policy around around lateral moves and new positions within the company. Career advancement should also be rewarded financially.

    Pros

    Great benefits. Large company. Lots of potential, perhaps California is better than the Utah office. They copy the benefits over to Utah and outside of the Client Success organization I think things could be much better.

    Cons

    Management does not seem to get it in our department. They will not communicate with the employees and it does not seem that we have the clients interests in mind nor the employees interest in mind. This leaves us with only managers who are looking at the wrong items. If you do not have happy clients or employees the only happy ones left are stock holders and in that situation that will not last very long. To quote Dan Pink ,"When the purpose becomes unmoored from the money bad things happen." Mostly the Client Success Organization has to better themselves. They are treading water when they could really be in touch with the clients and be doing so much more.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your clients more. Listen to your employees more and write down some real next steps to resolve some of the current issues you have happening right now. If you cannot pay employees enough you have got to cater to other needs. First, give them more autonomy. Next, give them more opportunities to master themselves. Outline better career paths, this is the case for most of the company why not in the client services department.

    Shantanu is probably doing what he can, but some of your departments are floudering and failing and you are unaware right now. You should let people report failures. It seems they are too scared to report failures now.
