    I have been working at Adobe full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    -It's a Billion Dollar Start Up - fast pace, highly-intelligent people, makes strategic decisions fairly quickly for such a large company.
    -Culture is fantastic - you love coming to work because of the great people!
    -The solution space is fantastic - everything digital!

    Cons

    We're a consensus-driven culture, which can make the decision making process all-inclusive; but the positive is that once a decision is made, it is fully supported.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the Pace and Great Work. Continue a Relentless Focus on Making Our Customers Happy.

    I have been working at Adobe full-time

    Pros

    Great Benefits, fun culture, innovative company. I've enjoyed working for Adobe so far. The people have been very welcoming and Adobe has a vision to make a change in the world.

    Cons

    it all depends on your position. For some it may be long work hours. For others it may be boring work. Haven't pinpointed any specific cons yet.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up all of the great work. I have enjoyed going to the internal meetings to learn about the direction of the compay.

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

    Pros

    From the start, I was immediately empowered to pursue whatever resources I needed to perform my tasks by my manager and the Check-In system ensured we were always on the same page in terms of my role's direction. The work-life balance was similarly excellent and I appreciated their willingness to not only let me volunteer locally but to chip in a pretty large donation to the nonprofit I was working every 10 hours I recorded. The severance package I received was very generous relative to the time I spent at the company (just over two years).

    Cons

    My team was distributed across the globe and (as would be expected) there were a lot of difficulties getting everyone on the same page/motivated to follow the processes I was responsible for within the group. There were also pretty significant organizational changes at the executive/director level which then cascaded down and led to the elimination of my position.

    I have been working at Adobe full-time

    Pros

    The vision around the platform is solid and customers buy into it. The number of reference customers and major brands using the platform is impressive.

    Cons

    The sales culture and morale is abysmal. The comp plan is punitive and many of the top performers in the sales org are leaving. Quotas are ridiculously high and borderline unachievable. Sales reps take on extra quota if customers do not renew. Customer support and professional services are terrible causing many customer escalations.

    Good work-life balance

    Cons

    Its all about the KPIs

    When its all about the billable number, experience folks don't have time to share what they know
