Pros

Free Starbucks coffee, candy, sodas, filtered water in all break rooms. 4 week sabbatical every 5 years for all employees.

Cons

My organization has no documented processes, procedures or templates. Information is very hard to find and is put out in various systems based on individual preferences. Attempts to normalize processes or procedures are not supported by individuals or management. Consistent poor feedback based on measurable actions is not acted upon.

Advice to Management

Take action on key managers who receive consistent poor reviews from peers and others rather than let a poor manager drive productivity and morale down for entire teams.

    Pros

    Great Benefits, very comprehensive. Competitive pay and nice place to work

    Cons

    Adobe does not know what it wants to be now that it is over 20 years old. They change course in the direction they are headed too often. They need to determine what they want to be a software company or a enterprise solutions company, you can not be both. Also, if you have young children this IS NOT the place for you. Long hours are expected and while they boast work life balance programs, do not be fooled. I think it is a great place to start your career fresh out of college but being in middle management at Adobe sucks.


  2. Over the past 7 years my experience at Adobe has been tremendous.

    Pros

    Best reasons to work at Adobe - culture, career growth potential, great people, and amazing opportunities to learn from senior colleagues and managers.

    Cons

    Lack of senior management's support in violations of code conduct. I and many of my colleages have been witness to blatant favoritism, of which senior management is well aware, but no disciplinary action is taken. Three incredibly talented and intelligent people have left the team because of this, but are too afraid to go to HR to complain. They fear that it would be awkward and nobody wants to be a whistle blower. It's a commonly known fact that the manager and his subordinate are in engaged in a personal relationship - it's laughable. What is not laughable is the obvious display of favoritism this manager bestows upon his subordinate - i.e. promotions when most would agree her skill level and abilities do not match the roles she's been promoted to.

    Advice to Management

    Don't promote/reward folks who cheat and lie. The good guys get screwed and end up leaving and you end up with a team built on a weak foundation.
