    It's been pretty good, but there are problems that can be sorted out.

    Pros

    Great benefits. Large company. Lots of potential, perhaps California is better than the Utah office. They copy the benefits over to Utah and outside of the Client Success organization I think things could be much better.

    Cons

    Management does not seem to get it in our department. They will not communicate with the employees and it does not seem that we have the clients interests in mind nor the employees interest in mind. This leaves us with only managers who are looking at the wrong items. If you do not have happy clients or employees the only happy ones left are stock holders and in that situation that will not last very long. To quote Dan Pink ,"When the purpose becomes unmoored from the money bad things happen." Mostly the Client Success Organization has to better themselves. They are treading water when they could really be in touch with the clients and be doing so much more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your clients more. Listen to your employees more and write down some real next steps to resolve some of the current issues you have happening right now. If you cannot pay employees enough you have got to cater to other needs. First, give them more autonomy. Next, give them more opportunities to master themselves. Outline better career paths, this is the case for most of the company why not in the client services department.

    Shantanu is probably doing what he can, but some of your departments are floudering and failing and you are unaware right now. You should let people report failures. It seems they are too scared to report failures now.

    Pros

    Base pay can be decent. There are still some smart people left here but you have to search for them. There are still some innovative products to work on. Many employees still remain customer focused and try their best to make the best products they can.

    Cons

    Utterly incompetent senior management. No one on the E-Team (save for maybe one SVP) is able to motivate technical staff. The company is now run entirely by bean counters who are trying to figure out the next way in which they can squeeze out things they've identified as "costs". All up the chain there is no tolerance for risk and hence not much in terms of truly groundbreaking innovation happens.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to the board is that Adobe needs some serious house cleaning at the senior management level and they should start at the very top.
