    Parking is the only thing that I can think of, but that's subjective. Other than that I can't really think of serious Cons from on-top of my head.

    Pros

    Great welcome for new employees

    Cons

    Not seen anything yet, I am few weeks old employee

    Advice to Management

    They have complementary sodas and drinks, instead I would suggest company should offer fruits to the employees that is good for health and well being as well. But this is not a big deal, my suggestion because apart from that, so far I have not found anything else.

    I have been working at Adobe full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I love working here, it's a super humane workplace. I work with talented, intelligent and kind colleagues, and it is really fun to be surrounded by creative people all day.

    Cons

    San Francisco is hellaciously expensive and a difficult place for families to live. Commutes to the surrounding areas are extremely long.

    I have been working at Adobe full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Have a good work life balance.
    Good benefits especially the ESPP purchase plan
    The CEO has a very good understanding on current trends in the industry and is willing to make changes.

    Cons

    It very much depends on the team. Some teams are young and like a mini startup.
    Some teams are full of old people, and it is hard to get promoted because they want you to wait until certain years despite you might be already qualified.
    There were a lot of reorganization and planning without solid action items.

    I have been working at Adobe full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of turmoil and dysfunction in the last couple of years, we're finally seeing the light. Lots of improvement in the Inside Sales org in the last couple of months with a change in leadership. Increased communication and more transparency is making things feel more at ease. There is more sense of a clear career path. Finally there is a a positive outlook and morale is up in the office

    Cons

    Quotas and definition of roles needs to be defined clearly.

    Cons

    -The PPT deck (and presentation) is a main communication currency here. Often, I think a summary email would be much more efficient.
