    I have been working at Adobe full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Employees are highly valued and handsomely rewarded. The dev environment is second to none. Lastly, the company culture is more like a family than the ever present industry sweat shop.

    Cons

    Executive management indecision or wild swings in strategy. This makes job security a constant issue among the rank and file.

    Advice to Management

    Plan well and invest for success. Work to increase confidence in the strategy at the ground level. When it's time to change direction, reassign rather than indiscriminately layoff and rehire.

    I worked at Adobe as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good coworkers and boss. Great exposure to challenging work.

    Cons

    My boss didn't live up to the contract to hire promise. I worked very hard in the beginning to impress my manager, he was impressed, and he showed every sign that he was going to get me converted to permanent. He did that for 3 contract extensions until finally laying me off because they a bunch of guys in India. But permanent employees at Adobe Consulting sometimes seem to be in a lot of stress to keep up to the hours utilization which is quite hard given fewer workable hours available to work.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to your word.
