Former Employee - Intern  in  Seattle, WA
Former Employee - Intern in Seattle, WA

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!

    Hard to get new projects off the ground, but still a great place to work.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA

    Pros

    * great people -- lots of talented engineers
    * great products -- mostly best-of-breed
    * great customers -- creating tools for creative customers is fun
    * great benefits -- totally solid

    Cons

    * hard to get new projects to live long enough to reach critical mass (but at least a failing project doesn't necessarily lead to layoffs, like it often used to)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We should take more risks, letting more projects get a toe-hold. The brand is strong enough to handle more failures.
