    Pros

    Great, smart people, good culture, good salary, benefits still good, always interesting projects and challenges.

    Cons

    A lot of products struggle to understand their marketplace, leadership has consistently made bad bets. Adobe used to create markets and product segments, but now it follows the leadership of other companies. Extremely distributed workforce makes for incoherent teams.

    Advice to Management

    Simplify and consolidate products and teams. Figure out a better way to grow products and innovation inside the company instead of buying other companies.

    Pros

    Great Technology
    Collaborative Environment
    Access to Senior Management
    Forward thinking Company
    Ethical Values
    Macro-Management Style- You can be yourself
    Seasoned players. Adobe isn't a start-up but can adapt like a start-up without the immaturity

    Cons

    Change can come so fast, talent often is left behind
    Since it's a large organization, Adobe can be challenging to navigate. If you're the type of person that likes to be thrown into the woods with a Map/Compass and told to figure it out, Adobe is the right place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time developing career paths for employees, many leave because of lack of advancement opportunities.
