Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to provide good information about competitors and how Adobe plans to compete. Also, would be interesting to know how an enterprise strategy will be articulated.

    Stay away from the Omniture side, especially Adobe Digital

    Pros

    You really learn a lot and since it is consulting, you get to work with some really smart and great people from other companies. You know what is going on in many different industries.

    Cons

    Although you learn a lot and meet great people at other companies, the management within Omniture is really bad. Promotions are given out based on friendship and politics to people that don't deserve them and aren't capable of leading or managing others.

    At least at Adobe Digital, employees are treated very unfairly, talked down to, reprimanded both in front of others and privately and you are only as good as you next mistake. You are given way too much work for one person to handle and then chastised when you make one mistake. And this is not just my opinion, the proof is in the pudding. In San Francisco, the Adobe Digital team has hired over a dozen people in the last 2 years with all but one quitting prior to reaching their year mark (and Adobe pays out nice money for reaching a year). Yet they still tell interviewees what a wonderful place to work it is.

    Meanwhile, the managers of these disgruntled employees keep getting promoted and praised because the consulting group is still very profitable based on the premium they get for carrying the Adobe name. They are profitable and that seems to be all the VPs care about. The incredible part is that upper management is aware of these issues because of countless HR complaints, surveys and the out-of-control turnover, but they'd rather turn over the entire work force than fire the people responsible for the mess.

    Do yourself a favor and away from Adobe Digital and possibly even Omniture altogether. Check out the Adobe software business itself. I hear they are much happier.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees.
    Thing long term success based on investing on your human assets rather than short term profits and losing your best people.
    Treat everyone with respect, even those you aren't trying to impress.
    Get rid of the people that are quickly ruining what used to be a great part of your company.

    Pros

    - lots of time off
    - great health care
    - stock purchase programs

    Cons

    as a massive organization, you get the following issues:
    - product direction changes almost daily
    - change comes very slowly
    - sales and engineering run everything and are seldom aligned
    - nothing every gets executed well, and there is a frequently a mad dash at the end of projects

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Slow down, and focus on aligning your existing business units for a while.
