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 Management

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

    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 Management

    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..

  2. Good place to work but that is changing.

    Stop the flow of experience walking out the door you will need them again.
