    I have been working at Adobe full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Interesting projects, work life balance, compensation, conferences, growth track for technologists, two annual shutdowns

    Cons

    Appalling internal systems, reorgs, large number of people involved in even smallish projects, politics between organizations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to recognize new ways to measure success of new initiatives, since nearly everything is bundled into larger services. New products take time to pick up speed.
