I have been working at Adobe

Pros

I respect Adobe's management/senior leadership and believe that the company has a solid strategy for meeting the challenges of the future. Each employee's role and contribution is respected, something that is very hard to find in similar companies. Finally, while not as good as in the past, the overall benefits/compensation plans are solid.

Cons

There seem to be very little opportunities for career advancement, definitely a sense of having to "do the time." Also, the culture can sometimes feel a bit "stodgy" -- innovation/change not always embraced.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Consider stronger paths to career management/advancement

    I worked at Adobe

    Pros

    Excellent Benefits
    Professional, yet collegial atmosphere
    You get to work on products that are actually fun to use.
    Ideas are welcomed no matter where you are on the food chain.
    Free fruit!

    Cons

    Too much is being off-shored. It's hard to get things accomplished during the day when you're waiting on information from someone on the other side of the globe. Live meetings with said same co-workers are at inconvenient times for all involved.

    Limited opportunities in Seattle office.

    I've never seen so many people cry at work when they're under pressure.

    Annual layoffs of hundreds of people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers need to take a more proactive approach to growing the skills of employees. Don't tell people in the US that "we can get someone for $40K a year in India, all expenses" because this is not confidence building and is fairly frightening.

    Lots of talk and not enough follow through.

    I have been working at Adobe

    Pros

    Benefits and pay is on par and everyone seems happy that stays. Adobe tries to make things better for employees by throwing activities and maintaining a balance. There are some cool technologies coming out of Adobe and if your a fan-boy you will be very happy here. People respect families in Adobe some people have been around for +20 years and for a high-tech company that is still producing some forefront technologies that is great. It's a leading software producing company that has done some good strategic moves to keep things fresh.

    Cons

    Moving fast is hard and there is a lot of isolation. Management could be better sometimes you are left to fend for yourself. A lot of teams doing the same thing and not enough communications across the company. Everyone is doing there own projects and you get a lot of soloing of resources.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More communications between teams and ensure that new employees get assimilated properly to ensure morale is good.
