    I have been working at Adobe full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I've been at Adobe for more than 9 years and I couldn't be happier. I have challenging work, the freedom to implement new ideas, a fantastic working environment and a supportive network of colleagues. I'm fortunate to have found a career that I love and a company that truly cares for its employees.

    Cons

    Nothing that I can think of. I'm thankful for the opportunity to be able to make an impact everyday.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to take bold risks.

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

    Pros

    Amazing benefits. Adobe goes far beyond any other place I have ever worked. You really can feel Silicon Valley coming through.

    Cons

    I work on the Digital Marketing side of the company and things are very sloppy. Finance workers such as analysts are required to input accruals and other journal entries. It feels like the checks and balances of a controller is sorely missed. I have never worked somewhere that I don't know everyone who works in accounting to satisfy the demands of a finance role. Not at Adobe. There are so many people all over the world putting in entries it's impossible to know who does what. Accounting is like a black box of unknown workers. There is an amazing amount of duplication of work. It seems like no one really owns anything because there are so many other people doing that same thing.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    - Whole company shuts down the week of Christmas & New Year's and again the week of July 4th. Makes it much easier to unplug and come back without a tsunami of emails, etc. - Work life balance is decent for a tech company. - Sabbatical program for employees who have worked there for 5 years (one month off paid). - Adobe is very open to people working remotely and a lot of people do.

    Cons

    - Lack of job security: Adobe is known for having layoffs on an almost annual basis. People start getting nervous about their jobs come evert January. You're unlikely to see it coming. - Benefits aren't on par with other tech companies such as Google, Facebook or even newer companies like AirBnB. - Summer & Christmas shutdowns put pressure on people to not take vacations outside of those two scheduled weeks.

    Advice to Management

    Put more emphasis on developing a consistent culture across the company. For the most part people seem to be treated well, but there are pockets where that is not the case and senior management either isn't aware or turns a blind eye.

    Catering to dying industries in certain cases. Many have worked here for 15+ years so little incentive to DIVE into new tech.

    There are no downsides, however there are so many levels of approval that sometimes it can be a challenge to get things done.
