Pros

Lots of interesting projects, good life/work balance, good benefits, great location and office in SF. Recent acquisitions have brought in good product, technology, and people.

Cons

Several key strategic missteps in the last few years have kept the stock price stagnant, harmed morale. Heavy emphasis on offshoring leads to little stability and high turnover. Frequent layoffs are demoralizing.

Advice to Management

The subscription business model change is a good bold move, glad to finally see some risk-taking, keep it up.

    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 Management

    Get some help with Management Consulting to improve execution

    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 Management

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