I have been working at Adobe full-time for more than a 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.

    I have been working at Adobe full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, decent salary, lots of smart people, cool projects, international reach.

    Cons

    Can be bureaucratic. Too many directors without enough to do so they interfere in the day-to-day operations. Decision making process is often chaotic. Decisions get made and reversed on a regular basis. Politics can be irritating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow through better. Let decisions be made at an appropriate level - do it, don't just say it.

    I have been working at Adobe full-time for more than 10 years

    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
