    Pros

    I worked at Adobe full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, great products. Adobe provides good technical support and good support tools. Adobe is growing at a very fast rate and tends to promote within.

    Cons

    Quatas are set by corporate goals, not necessary by potential within the assigned accounts. High turnover in some industries.

    For a company that calls itself creative, I see no creativity and bad management

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

    Pros

    The base pay is above average for the area and comparable to tech companies. Some good peers to work with and the stock has done well

    Cons

    Having a cash cow / monopolistic product allows unaccountability and terrible execution to flourish. The management is horrible. There is a lot of talk but no action- that is if you get any real communication. No career progression. It is still a revolving door with people coming and going. There are many contractors working there with roles that should be employees. Once you get in a groove with a team, there is a re-org. Many teams do not have any clear goals. You see the concepts being talked about over and over but no execution. But the cash cow products purcahsed allows it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is no focus on the customer externally or internally as an employee. Any management 101 book would explain basic concepts. Establish clear goals and hold people accountable. Increase both 2-way communications allow non-VP tactile decisions to be made.
    Hire more junior people to do the work and want to listen to your employees/customers

    I worked at Adobe (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great culture, perks, brand and vision. Quality people and products.

    Cons

    Relatively big and slow moving. Making a measurable impact is difficult even if you run a $150m business in such a large/diverse company. If you're on the Enterprise/customer facing part of the business (ex- sales) this is only being created after the Omniture acquisition...so a real sales-centric culture for the Enterprise does not yet exist as the history is in consumer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay the path, identify talent and work to retain it.
