    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 Management

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

    I have been working at Adobe full-time (More than a 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.

    Pros

    Everyone you work with will be skilled and talented in their area of expertise. Equipment is state of the art. Work perks are above average.

    Cons

    Where much is given, much is expected. Very complex products.

    Advice to Management

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