I have been working at Adobe

Pros

- very little stress
- great work life balance (out by 5pm, in after 9)
- great benefits
- most people are nice
- free food/soda
- If you are looking for decent pay, no stress, consistent work, hard to go wrong

Cons

- Absolutely no correlation between ability and position in the company
- Far more politics then other companies I have worked with
- Some of the least skilled people I have worked with
- Terrible infighting between groups
- No one is held accountable for anything
- MANY MANY layers of management for no reason
- If you want a position that pushes you, makes you better, will allow opportunity and growth, not the place for you

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It is obvious that we have a rudderless ship. I blame middle layers of management and complete delusion of people who have been in the company for many years for most of the problems.

    Used to have focus on cool technologies, now very much business focused.

    I worked at Adobe

    Pros

    Very cool technologies
    Excellent benefits
    People are very open and receptive
    Everyone knows and admires Adobe and its products
    Worldwide business exposure

    Cons

    Expansion seems to all be done outside the USA - very limited growth within.
    No attention paid to giving people wider experiences, so heaven forbid you stay with a product too long, you'll be shown the door.
    Strategy explanation never seemed to make sense the last few years - maybe it's gotten too big to have a single focus?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adobe was started with some ideas that really shook up the world and created new opportunities. Now it seems the focus is on doing existing things more efficiently. That way lays suboptimal growth.
