I worked at Adobe

Pros

Most of the professionals at Adobe are exceptionally smart, competent, and easy to work with. The salaries are very competitive and the benefits, especially health insurance benefits, are great.

Cons

The Learning Resources group, which handles technical writing and documentation, is neither well-organized nor well-run. Decisions are made based on nebulous ideas about future trends and not based on better service for the customer. Cross-functional communication is very limited. There is a new initiative to lay off US employees and move jobs to India, and this initiative is not being handled well.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I suggest paying more attention to the ideas of key employees, and also slowing down the plans to move jobs offshore.

    Pros

    Environment was really helpful especially in development. All engineers are free to talk and help. The building is extremely nice and the amenities are top notch.

    Cons

    Sometimes the products are not the most exciting. Every product uses flash or so it seems, and speed is not always the first priority.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look into other options, flash is not the answer to everything. Overall, I feel there needs to be more innovation.
