Riding past successes, hopefully continues to survive, pretends to be progressive but is actually fairly insular.

Senior Product Marketing Manager (Current Employee) San Jose, CA

ProsInteresting products, reasonable work-life balance, and they are trying do innovate and move beyond their core products. Good relative salaries. Macromedia aquisition helped to dilute the stifling old-boys club.

ConsYou need to be in the club - this is no meritocracy - it's an old-boys club. Thus if you aren't in this club - and it take years to be included - you will suffer an extremely slow path of development and promotion. If rapid growth is important to you, then you'll need to look elsewhere. Unfortunately a fair number of members of the 'club' have been at Adobe for a decade (or more), and they seem to feel like there is some time-based 'dues' that need to be paid. If you are a woman, it is also more difficult to get past Director level. There are very few that actually own product/revenue.

Advice to Senior ManagementOur attempts at innovation are fairly weak and are very close to our existing products. Glacial pace of employee development leads many folks to looking elsewhere, even though it is easy to get caught in the 'comfort' trap. But you don't want folks comfortable - you want them striving for the next level. When it is apparent that you need to be in a club to advance, or here for more than 5 years, then motivation flags.
