I worked at Adobe

Pros

- Stocked Kitchen, Beer Bashes on Fridays
- Lunches are well prepared by chefs (not free though)
- Very passionate and smart people
- Very fun and relaxed atmosphere to work in. "Work Hard, Play Hard"
- Awesome game room
- People are very open minded and willing to listen to your opinion and ideas and courteous as well
- Good pay, cool perks like free fitness reimbursement

Cons

- Very flat organization structure, hard to get promoted and move onto other positions
- Mature company, goes to the first point, a lot of people are settled in their positions so its hard to move up, you may have to go to another company then come back to higher position
- The yearly layoffs
- Upper management is not taking risks in new products, very conservative and reliant on the core products (photoshop, flash, etc.)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep treating your employees well. Don't be afraid to take risks and retain top talent, don't lay off people without a very good reason to do so. Keep letting the innovation grow and support new products!

    Adobe needs to worry about employees and products, not wall street

    Pros

    Great co-workers. Work-life balance is better than most other companies. Adobe's doing exciting things--if we succeed, we'll have a huge, positive impact on how others do their work.

    Cons

    Adobe still isn't a bad place to work, but from the employee perspective, it definitely seems to be on the decline. With layoffs, cost-cutting measures by removing time off and benefits, morale on most teams is really low. Management seems more worried about appeasing Wall Street than running a successful, impactful business where employees are happy and excited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ignore Wall Street, but don't ignore the low-morale within the company. Worry about making a difference to your customers. Quit making small, hedged bets...that is a way to create mediocre products, not a way to create successful products. Make sure quality is a key priority in the company; outside of their own organization, most people have no faith in other Adobe products.
