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

    Pros

    Adobe is a great place to work and provides all kinds of benefits to employees including work-from-home opportunities, wellness stipends, and social celebrations. But most importantly, I like the people I work with, because they work hard and appreciate my work and contributions. Looking forward to a raise soon!

    Cons

    Adobe is such a large company that you really need to do your research to learn about its products and services beyond your own business unit.

    Consider changing work perks/parties to benefit the majority of individuals based on culture of office location.

    Pros

    Very Flexible with work/life balance. Provides great benefits. Very easy as a culture to integrate into. Love that they have an office in the city.

    Cons

    Adobe is a consensus building organization, meaning, that to get anything done, you have to work very hard to convince a critical mass that your idea is a good one.
