    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 Management

    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
