Pros

Insanely amazing engineers that create fantastic products consistently

Cons

engineering is amazing, but understanding how to position and sell the products in the markeplace is lacking; Connect should be beating WebEx for example, other products get buried.

    I have been working at Adobe

    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.
