    Still good place to work

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Computer Scientist  in  San Jose, CA
    Current Employee - Computer Scientist in San Jose, CA

    Pros

    Pretty good salaries and excellent benefits, very nice environment with personal office for every engineer. Work on products everybody recognizes. Almost no everyday pressure from mid-level management, with accent on overall performance.

    Cons

    Management chain sometimes is way too long and includes middlemen far from both engineering and decision making. Engineering job title structure is flat (it's common for Adobe to have Computer Scientists with 10+ years of experience and Senior Computer Scientists with 15-20 years) - might be a problem when you change a job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less concentrate on Flash and stop war with Apple. Do not send so many jobs to Indoa and China. Flatten the management chain.

    Becoming less fun to work here as corporation and resulting bureaucracy grows

    Current Employee - Software Quality Engineer  in  San Jose, CA
    Current Employee - Software Quality Engineer in San Jose, CA

    Pros

    You get to work on interesting products and technologies. If you don't like what you are doing, it is relatively easy to transfer to another group. Company has a good reputation in the marketplace. Very good benefits and amenities, including employee software purchasing, private offices, on-site post office and gym, some free food and drinks.

    Cons

    Benefits have been significantly cut in the last couple of years. Promotions are difficult to get. Cost-cutting measures have resulted in ridiculous bureaucracy in purchasing equipment. Layoffs are frequent. New hires are usually in China and India instead of USA. With some products there is a lack of leadership from senior management, which results in low-quality products. It is very difficult to fire incompetent people, especially managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add a system for people to review their managers so senior management can be notified about poor managers. Instead of laying off people in the US to boost the stock price, should be investing in acquiring great talent to really mature some of our products.
