    I have been working at Adobe

    Pros

    Very strong products with extensive recognition across the creative customers base and the information workers

    Cons

    products are expensive and have a big learning curve for new users, also creative products change version multiple times per year

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reconsider change in direction away from channel moving towards a direct/online fulfillment model

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

    Pros

    Great company with great products! Adobe tends to pay well and has wonderful benefits. They are the market leader in most of what they do, I was always proud to tell people I worked at Adobe. I worked remotely, but all of the Adobe facilities I visited were fantastic.

    Cons

    The biggest con (and the only reason I didn't rate 5 stars) is that every November, virtually everyone in the company has to be worried about their job. Adobe tends to go full force at something for a while and then rather than making small incremental changes they drastically change direction, budgets are slashed and you are gone. Very little commitment to good employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should do a better job helping good employees find new places in the company when direction changes.

    I have been working at Adobe full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people, who genuinely care about the customers they serve and their role in spurring creativity and design throughout the world. Built by two fantastic founders who infused the company with passion around engineering, innovation, and treating people well. Great stock purchase plan. Great sabbatical plan. Great and easy travel expense handling. Proven track record of acquiring companies to continue growth.

    Cons

    Very San Francisco-centric. You can work in a 400+ person office in another city and be considered a remote employee. Do not handle decentralization well. Instead of centers of excellence built around specific projects or businesses, many offices are essentially treated as remote cube farms. Poor track record or organic growth. Most growth has come from M & A or through business model changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get serious about building centers of excellence in sites outside of the Bay Area. Continue to invest in innovation, and look for organic growth.

    I have been working at Adobe full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedules keep time for family-personal items a forefront. Strong benefits thru espp, health, and other programs. Lots of smart people to work around, doing smart things well.

    Cons

    Due to acquisitions some seats of power are located in other geos which makes it difficult to climb the ranks without moving (for some departments/products).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up!

    Pros

    Benefits, vacation, working remote. There is always something to work on

    Cons

    Sometimes it gets too hectic. Working remote you need a balance. Also, sometimes the processes get in the way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continuing understanding the needs of the employees and allow them to innovate more. Making it easier for ambitious individuals to move up and tackle different tasks.
