Great place to be yourself

Pros

Generally speaking, Adobe is not a super political place. I have found people to be genuinely interested in what is best for the company. That makes working across different teams easier than if everyone were in their own empire or silo.

Cons

Historically, the company has been very consensus oriented -- if anything, the power of the veto was greater than the power to make a decision. That is definitely starting to change.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Employees want to be part of a winning company. If that means unpopular decisions sometimes have to be made, so be it.

    Pros

    Products are great & company continues to innovate
    Sr mgmt has always been strong
    Very civic oriented: very unusual for companies based in Silicon Valley

    Cons

    Mid-level mgrs: some good, many are real idiots
    Very process-bound: takes 10 people to approve every decision
    Review process rewards people who rubber stamp decisions of mgmt

    A decent place to work, higher than average off-shoring of positions, bright straightforward employees.

    Pros

    OK pay, flexible organizational structure. Excellent work environment.

    Cons

    Slow moving in adoption of new technologies; internally and providing them to customers. Average amount of politics. Poor employee performance reporting process. Middle management needs business training as well as basic management training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication is bidirectional but responding to it is not, management should listen as well as they direct.
