    Current Employee - Engineering Manager in San Jose, CA

    I have been working at Adobe full-time (more than 5 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    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.
