Pros

Work life balance. Leadership in the industry. Resources and support. Company invests heavily in keeping workers abreast of products and works to grow synergies through acquisitions.

Cons

Teams work across broad geo locations which can be challenging. Performance reviews are rather superficial. You won't really know if the quality of your work is any better than satisfactory or not.

    Cons

    Poor senior management , changes directions every few months.
    Annual Layoffs talented folks gare demoralizing. Seems like there is the threat to your job every year.
    Performance reviews are rather superficial.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop celebrating just strategies. Your strategies change every few months.
    Respect the existing employees instead of just making the employees through acquisition happy.

    Pros

    - Neat products - look great - customers like them
    - Semi-Flexible hours
    - Great salary - commisions just ok

    Cons

    - Poor senior management (change directions every few months - terrible)
    - Poor product quality - terrible bugs still in the product after 5 years
    - Layoffs every year - talented folks get let go while lazy political types stay on - well documented
    - Adobe is in a nosedive in terms of direction - poor place for secure career
    - Vacation policy is directed by each manager - terrible execution
    - Get ready for a layoff about a year after you join! Fun Stuff!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Quit the lack of direction and switching direction every few months!
    - Learn what products you have and learn what value they bring the market before eliminating them
    - Talk to your customers - not other execs - ask customers about product quality and how bad it is
    - Stop these constant hire a ton of people then 6 months later layoff a ton - very disruptive
    - Stop the four letter word usage in major sales meetings by execs - very childish - very unprofessional
    - Stop making the acquired company the new management - wow what a mess every time!
    - Eliminate the crazy vacation policy which allows each manager to decide how much you get - terribly unfair and poorly handled at the local level
