    I worked at Adobe

    Pros

    It provides flexible hours. It's good for the engineers who want to work remotely. I have never met a couple of engineers in the same group for about four years. It provides a good benefit package. It has good QA teams.

    Cons

    No innovation, that's a biig problem in this company. It tries to retain the senior engineers (more thatn 10, 15 years with the company) because they can read/understand the lagacy code. Managers are afraid of losing them. Managers cut loose the less senior ones if downsized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company needs new "blood" from outside. The new college gradutes are not new "blood". Try to recruit engineers from Google, Microsoft, and the others. Seniority kiils the innovation.

    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.
