    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
