I have been working at Adobe full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Very good quality of life, people very nice (no yelling and screaming!), you can have an impact - they don't expect the work you do to necessarily follow some strict guidelines. Creativity permitted!

Cons

Some people (particularly those who have been at Adobe a long time) are quite resistant to change - responses can often be: "that isn't how we do it at Adobe", "we can't do that", etc.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Often people say "no" when new ideas are proposed, particularly related to our internal systems.

    Great company to work with but Annual Layoffs are a Killer

    Former Employee - Technical Account Manager in San Jose, CA

    I worked at Adobe full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Great work environment and company culture
    - Good Technology
    - Great flexible hours

    Cons

    - Annual layoffs. It happens every year in Oct-Nov before the end of their Annual year. Affected are mostly in high cost area such as US and Europe and they replace those with lost cost centers like India.
    - Very little chance of cross group movement. They prefer to hire from outside instead of giving inside opportunity unless you have connections then you can move into any position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - You have ruined the company culture by these annual layoffs. Stop them.
    - Also, there is a bit of cronyism culture in the company. Make it more performanc ebased instead of connection based.

    Pros

    Adobe has very bright people, and provides employees with very good benefits. Adobe continues to develop products that you can't live without.

    Cons

    Adobe is a becoming a big company, and has its share of big-company problems. There is lots of internal politics, and of late has caused execution to suffer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some help with Management Consulting to improve execution
