    I have been working at Adobe full-time

    Pros

    Successful company with solid management. Room to move around. Culture is good, although a lot of people work from home, so the offices aren't always full.

    Cons

    Lot's of reorgs and management changes. Acquisition of many companies has created uncertainty around strategy. Integrations are complex, which can lead to confusion internally and externally.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing but try to solidify the organization, so there isn't so much change all the time.

    Pros

    - Good salary and stock compensation
    - Stable and secure job atmosphere
    - Very talented people to learn from
    - Great benefits (health, legal, vacation, life insurance, commuting...)
    - SF location makes it easy to commute
    - Successful company with considerable means to support ambitious projects

    Cons

    - Growth (both in terms of salaries and title) is slow and unclear
    - People are usually very career-driven so it's not friendliest group of people at first

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that people's career path is clearer: Let them know if they can grow (both in terms of salary and stock, and in terms of title and responsibilities); and let them know exactly what they'd need to do to get there.

    Pros

    Best in class Benefits (Healthcare, HSA, ShortTerm Leave, Education reimbursement, Maternity leave [6months full paid], UNL vacation, 401K). The stock buying program is fantastic and RSUs are great if you negotiate and stay. For those not in sales, its a diversified workforce. Our CEO is an engineer so we are a product first company and our technology is on the cutting edge. The partnership with MS is revolutionary and I am excited to see what happens with it.
    Your colleagues will be best in the industry and you will learn a lot from them. When you first get here everyone is willing to help get you up to speed.

    Cons

    Leadership can be overbearing and often antagonistic. With women in sales at Adobe Experience Cloud at historical lows, its a guys club and management does not try to fix itself. Recent higher of VPs of plagued with old school thinking of not progressing unless you have put your time in or are a middle aged married white man.
    They change your comp plan for sales reps mid year/remove SPIFFs to prevent overpaying.
    No clear path on how to progress your career and if your management doesn't support you it makes it very challenging.
    As an employee, new hire and job specific training is challenging if you don't do well learning at the computer. They rarley do trainings in person.

    Advice to Management

    Try to bring in fresh talent the is more diversified. Do trainings in person.

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

    Pros

    Always ranked one of the top companies to work for.

    Cons

    As with any big organization you’re going to find people doing the work and lots more people telling others how to do their work.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of attrition in the sales comp model.
