    I worked at Adobe full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great company, good coworkers, great benefits. This company takes care of you, while giving you a lot of room to grow, train, and try out new things. I had a good relationship with some in upper management and felt like they cared about what was going on in their organizations.

    Cons

    The same as anywhere else you work- some uninspired middle management, old foagies hanging on not wanting to grow, double standards. Nothing inordinately different about the cons here versus other places. Your average corporate America shenanigans.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Most of the management did a fine job with that, but there were always a couple people with their ears shut.

    I worked at Adobe as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Adobe provides a Flexible work schedule. Often found myself working on cutting edge work. The teams were friendly and welcoming.

    Cons

    Front line managers lack the motivation to get to know employees and care about their development. Management would talk bad about employees behind closed doors while telling the employees that they are doing great and have little to work on.

    Advice to Management

    Managers should give real actionable feedback to employees when there is something to improve instead of just belittling the employee.

    I worked at Adobe full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Adobe cares a lot about employees and provides incredible benefits. I worked with really talented people all across the world and learned a lot about powerful technology in the domain of digital marketing / analytics. The products I worked on were complicated and challenging. Also - you didn't have to be a manager of people to advance.

    Cons

    Lots of politics and (at the time) weak product management organization. Also, there wasn't room to advance as a manager because of other Adobe "lifers" who liked their comfortable management jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in the learning and growth of individual contributors. Don't put people in management positions that are poor people managers or don't know how to help others grow.

    I worked at Adobe full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good products and good company culture. It was hard to get a job because everyone in Utah wanted to work here. That probably got worse once the new building was built.

    Cons

    Upper management had been making it harder to make money for the last couple of years since the Omniture acquisition before I left. That was strange because the Adobe Marketing Suite is going to have to grow really quickly to stay ahead of Google and IBM.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let short term stock price pushing take your eye off the long term opportunity of being a leader in Digital Marketing Optimization.

    Advice to Management

    Look for more ways to reward top talent and provide opportunities for growth.

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

    Pros

    The benefits at Adobe are excellent. They really do a lot for their employees. The Adobe culture is great and I think it is getting better. The people at Adobe enjoy their jobs and it shows in interactions.

    Cons

    Very tall company and a lot of middle management feels a bit stale. I think many departments are a bit over segregated creating unnecessary levels of management and hierarchy between employees and people with real authority.

    Advice to Management

    Don't allow middle management to stay too long without progressing.

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

    Pros

    Good work life balance for the most part. There is a high value on PTO from upper management. Family first. Advancement opportunities if you have the drive to learn and move up. The company is still small enough to know a lot of key people up to Ops Staff.

    There is a huge push to improve the workspace on a global level and it is making it an even more enjoyable place to work.

    There is also a new welcomed push from HR to remove the annual review process. This is a huge innovated step for a company this size. It shows that HR is listening to the employees and making changes.

    Ultimately, Adobe is a great place to work because of the people I work with. I genuinely enjoy working with most of my peers. It creates a solid experience.

    Cons

    The HR policy that restricts the salary increase when you move to a new position. Too many new jobs where you completely change roles are considered "lateral" moves and thus not eligible for an appropriate salary based on the new job or stock options.

    Advice to Management

    Re-evaluate the HR policy around around lateral moves and new positions within the company. Career advancement should also be rewarded financially.
