    Pros

    The technical people, computer scientists and architects are some of the smartest and most passionate people I've ever worked for in over 20 years in software companies. There is an expert in anything - you're never more than 2-3 phone calls or emails from getting a very authoritative answer to any question.

    Cons

    There have been layoffs in 5 of the last 7 years. There is no job security, and no long term plans. Its virtually impossible to plan out more than 2-3 months of a project, and there is no vision on what products to build, what customers need. In the last ~3 years this has become one of the most chaotic, me-too organizations.

    Advice to Management

    Please, oh please, figure out where you want this company to go, and focus on getting there. You're far too scattered and ambiguous to be successful. Remember when Adobe was known for Photoshop and Acrobat? What is Adobe known for now? Mediocrity and chaos.

    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 Management

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