    Pros

    Great Silicon Valley company doing many things right especially in how it treats its employees. Good working environment where employees are heard and valued. Benefits are many from flexible hours, great gym, 401-k match, volunteer opportunities including matching donations, discounted software among a few. One of the best places in the valley to work.

    Cons

    Typical SV issue of meeting and email overload. Senior management sometimes feels indecisive and executive team works too top-down.

    Advice to Management

    Give staff more ability to negotiate decision-making processes. Lead by example. Too much of the time you're in the weeds.

    Pros

    working at adobe includes plenty of meaningful work, being around many smart colleagues who are very passionate in all their activities, and taking on lots of breadth and variety in your daily work responsibilities

    Cons

    there aren't too many cons. obviously it is a large company so suffers from some of the pitfalls of any large company, like sometimes you can end up on a product or agenda that gets sidelined and isn't part of the core business. that is not a great place to end up but movement within the company is good so you should be able to jump to a more compelling project.

    Advice to Management

    continue doing the great work and setting growth-oriented and ambitious strategies. adobe needs more variety in it's leadership and a focus on fostering young talent as well as hiring in new talent.

    Pros

    Great location if you live in downtown San Jose.

    Cons

    People do busy work. It's more important to look busy than to be productive. Much too much time is spent on internal politicking and creating presentations to "sell" what you are working on to other internal teams, as opposed to creating value for customers. Execs are highly paid and impressed with themselves. This is not the "cool" place to work that they think it is, although they will try very had to convince you.

    Pros

    Great people, Strong Brand, Good Benefits, On the right team you can thrive. Can't argue with the growth in the stock price.

    Cons

    It still amazes me that the smallest details are decided by the executive leadership team. Must be a lack of trust.

    Advice to Management

    Allow the people you've hired to grow and run their business. Don't be so quick to kill the channels.
