Current Employee - Software Engineer in San Jose, CA

I have been working at Adobe full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Good office location,Good Gym,Good Beer Bash

Cons

Too many managers. In some cases you have 9 managers between the poor employee and the CEO. Outright nepotism in promoting individuals especially in QE. Some managers do not even come to work every day, rumors are they have a side business to attend.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to keep a flat structure. Have a open forum to discuss issues with the employees

    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

    Doesn't Recommend

    I have been working at Adobe full-time (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.
