    I worked at Adobe full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Cool atmosphere, cool benis, Cool events. It has to be or the cons can easily over weigh this.

    Cons

    Politics and process. While "Process yields predictable results", The amount of process can be nauseating. If you love sitting in meetings, you can sit in meetings for hours and hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are some mighty fine folks at Adobe. There are some that are simply terrible. Weed out the ones that you know are bad apples. Performance matters. If the employee is an individual contributor, don't be afraid to promote.

    Former Employee - Program Director in San Francisco, CA

    I worked at Adobe full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Although a relatively large company, Adobe has always thought of itself as a BIG company. This does have its advantages:
    - Competitive salaries, great benefits, stock
    - Support of charitable giving and activities
    - Resources, opportunities

    Cons

    However, operating as a "BIG" company also has its drawbacks:
    - Bureaucratic
    - Slow-moving
    - Tentative
    - Rewards longevity rather than innovation
    - Annual Christmas purge (layoffs)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in true innovation, or get left behind.
