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

    Pros

    Relentless commitment to customer success. This is the core of most day to day decisions and the North Star for all activity. This makes it a place to be proud to work.
    Incredible products
    Amazing benefits and culture that draws incredibly talented individuals

    Cons

    Really not many to mention. Like any enterprise software company some of the processes can be cumbersome but certainly no worse than anywhere else.

    Pros

    It’s a fun place to work where everyone is at a top level in their field. Where creativity isnt just a way of life. It’s a state of being.

    Cons

    Sometimes the right hand doesn’t know the left exists. Needs more communication across teams.

    I have been working at Adobe full-time

    Pros

    Adobe welcomed me with open arms. I interviewed with several tech companies and I must say the interview process was far better others. The talent partner mentored and ushered me along the way providing me with advice and continued to stay engaged with me throughout the process. Adobe's HQ campus is beyond amazing with bright colors. My first week, I was welcomed by several employee networks and employees from various sites all excited to have me part of the #AdobeLife family. Now I am heavily involved in these employee networks planning for site-wide cultural events and more. My manager constantly supports my work/life balance and asks if I need help or advises me to slow down at times.

    I joined Adobe because of its family first benefits. Birthing and non-birthing parents receive six months of family leave after birth. I can also freeze my eggs and receive fertility benefits in addition to adoptions benefits up to $25,000! It was the best and right decision to make to join #AdobeLife. The company does not feel competitive in nature at all like at other tech companies.

    Cons

    No cons at all for Adobe

    Pros

    Adobe is a truly inspiring place to work. The benefits alone are a show stopper -- above and beyond what any other tech company offers: 6 month paid maternity, flexible return to work back from maternity, high quality insurance that covers above anything you might want, HSA spending for anything not covered, reimbursement 1K annually for learning development, reimbursement $360 annually for your health & wellness needs -- and so much more. The benefits have your back for your needs both inside and outside of work. The culture is warm, accepting, and open. You can truly create the kind of job that you want, based on how you want to grow. If you ask for what you need -- whether it's from your manager, mentor, peer Employee Resource Center -- you can truly make your job what you want it to be. The people who work at Adobe are on your side. They are high performing yet humble. They will go out of their way and step up for you to bring out the best in you. Whether you are looking for an environment that pushes you, challenges you to do your best work, or for colleagues that will accept you as you are -- Adobe is a great place to work for anyone that takes pride in their work.

    Cons

    There are no cons to working at Adobe.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the amazing work!

    Pros

    Adobe really cares about people and their development. Lots of resources. They ensured Magento acquisition would be successful. Clear career path at Adobe. Lost of growth and good talent being added.

    Cons

    It’s very large. There is some organizational tax to any company of a large size.

    Pros

    When it comes to technology, Adobe is right at the top of the stack of employers. A fantastic and open work culture that truly believes in innovation.

    Cons

    Not all managers have good people skills. They might be excellent on the technical side of things but maybe have been promoted too fast within the ranks. Leading teams requires more than technical expertise. I would also like to point out some random policy decisions such as continuing with Aetna for insurance is very problematic. Especially when people have complained regarding their lack of cover for certain problems, such as not providing coverage for younger women for prenatal genetic testing. This is definitely something that needs looking into.

    Advice to Management

    HR needs to act on complaints and points raised by employees more quickly
