Pros

Awesome products -- fun working on a product used by millions of people
Great Technology
High level of trust and respect for employees
Great work environment

Cons

Some employees have a lack of urgency for making needed product improvements. We need to be more customer focused. Sometimes we have great technology that is too hard for people to use.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Drive accountability for more accountability from business and engineering leaders for ensuring that we are doing right by our customers.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the adobe creative suite, specifically, cs4, didn't sell well due the the economic downtime. Adobe had to lay off twice in one year, sigh...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None... I am grateful to my manager and manager's manager. I wish Adobe didn't acquire the omniture but stick to the desktop creative suite, but I understand that's not the reality..

    I have been working at Adobe

    Pros

    - Very generous time off, including company shutdowns to ensure everyone actually uses it.
    - Non-confrontational atmosphere; colleagues are accessible, pleasant people to work with on a daily basis.

    Cons

    - Lots of silos. Core component groups take no responsibility for downstream use of their code, leading to lots of patches and not enough sharing of knowledge.
    - Lots of work done overseas. If you depend on one of those groups it can be tough to work out problems in a timely manner.
    - Too many groups have their own agendas, leading to a confusing technology stack.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Flash may be the future, but it's 10 years old and showing its age. Start taking its stability and performance issues seriously or all of the partnerships in the world won't help.
