Advice to ManagementAdvice

Although flash and related products are not key money making products for Adobe, these are very important for overall company strategy. Please compensate the employees equally for these products, otherwise talented employees will start looking elsewhere.

    Extremely political workplace, but good if you're on the right team

    I worked at Adobe

    Pros

    --excellent compensation
    --private offices
    --flexible policies
    --diverse workforce
    --fun products
    --good on your resume

    Cons

    --many managers are promoted as a reward for time at the company--*not* for competence or true management ability
    --in some areas, teams actively dislike each other (and even within some teams) and management either ignores or is helpless to solve the problems

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less time should be spent paying lip-service to political correctness, and more to relations among coworkers--and set some standards and training for your management in how to manage people

    I have been working at Adobe

    Pros

    - Very reasonable hours; I almost never work weekends (only about once a year during "crunch time").
    - Very friendly place to work, not at all confrontational or competitive.
    - People at Adobe are less nerdy than at some other companies, perhaps due to all the design-oriented products that the company makes.
    - I think the company is in a fairly good place in terms of future growth potential.
    - Steep discounts (about as steep as you can get) on all those great Adobe products.

    Cons

    - Although my peers are pretty good programmers, they are not as good as the people I used to work with at another large software company.
    - Adobe is not the kind of place that is "changing the world" in the way that Apple and Google are.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adobe really should do a better job at college hiring. I feel that we seldom get the top-notch students from the nation's top computer science universities. There are some awesome people coming out of these schools, and Adobe should be trying to get more of them.
