    Pros

    Great benfits. Divison is growing, though not as quickly as before. There are many great people to work with (my immediate team is really, truly fantastic). Nice location.

    Cons

    New building is an AWFUL workspace - it tries to be trendy, but completely fails functionally. There has always been a certain mild cultural bankruptcy which is hard to pin down. This was once overcome by the excitement and growth of Omniture, but no longer. It has become much more top heavy, big-brother, and over-environmentalist. If you like that kind of thing, this is the place for you!

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Treat them with respect. Help them grow. Don't simply reflect everything back on them. Learn how to lead, manage, and praise human beings. Choose supporting technologies that make sense and make the tough decisions you know are right.

    Pros

    Great people -- super smart, friendly, hard working
    Great products
    Offices are VERY nice (SJ and SF at least)
    Employee discount on products is like 90+% (huge discount), and we can hook up friends.
    Great other benefits
    The right amount of vacation time
    Old products shipped to India for maintenance so we can work on cutting edge stuff in the US (this is a good thing!)

    Cons

    If you work on an old product, Adobe is in the process of rennovating itself, so you might fear layoffs. However even in that case, if you are on top of your game, you'll get rehired by another team before even your last day. If you do get laid off, Adobe gives a 3 month severance, which is huge.

    Advice to Management

    There are a lot of great ideas in the company, and people willing to work on them... stop getting in the way. It takes too many people to make decisions, if you find people that believe in something, empower them instead of putting them through 10 levels of approval. We have some crazy awesome IP here, we can revolutionize the world. With the IP we have, one senior dev can make Instagram in a month.
