Pros

* Great people
* Good opportunities if you act on them
* Interesting projects & technology

Cons

Corporate politics reign at Adobe. Given it's size and history, there is a lot of bad blood between different groups. This leads to different divisions creating similar technologies, instead of investing in a single best-of-breed technology.

Don't take this to mean that the company is on the decline... I just believe that it can be so much better.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The CTO needs to realize he is not hearing the entire story and needs to foster a culture of unification.

    Pros

    The benefits at Adobe are excellent. They really do a lot for their employees. The Adobe culture is great and I think it is getting better. The people at Adobe enjoy their jobs and it shows in interactions.

    Cons

    Very tall company and a lot of middle management feels a bit stale. I think many departments are a bit over segregated creating unnecessary levels of management and hierarchy between employees and people with real authority.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't allow middle management to stay too long without progressing.

    Pros

    Work with smart people. Creative ideas are encouraged. Ability to move within the organization.

    Cons

    Overlap of responsibilities. Consensus approach to most decisions. Difficult to tell who is in charge. Digital marketing unit is growing but they have high expectations that they may not reach.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give a little more clear direction to employees. Have a little more direct responsibility for tasks.
