    Frustrating Beyond Comprehension

    Current Employee - Senior Marketing Manager in San Jose, CA

    I have been working at Adobe

    Pros

    Great products and technologies, people are smart (on the whole) and compensation and benefits are pretty good (though HR has taken away perks like PTO of late). Nice cafe!

    Cons

    Weak executive team, lack of clarity around vision. Very process oriented - and some of the processes are lame beyond belief. Once it took me six months to hire a new vendor and get them through the contract process. Very driven by quarterly revenue, so little investment in long brand term marketing....or long term anything for that matter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a new CEO, one that is capable of leading the company out of the era of packaged software. Get out of the stupid Flash argument with Apple. The market has decided Flash is dead.

    No clear career development paths
    Employees tend to be shuttled around to new roles (with or without their input)
