    Pros

    The cafeteria food is good.

    Cons

    The HR department recycles job ads with no intention of filling them. They do this as a matter of course. Don't waste your time applying. Your application will most likely go straight into a database and forgotten.

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

    Pros

    Great employee stock purchase program, good health benefits okay (3%, vesting 1/4 of that each year) 401(k) match, free use of Adobe products, “unlimited” PTO*****

    Cons

    Top heavy organization with too many managers, ends up stifling autonomy and creativity. Thoroughly bureaucratic, takes very long for minimal approval. Managers tend to be disconnected from individual contributors. Lots of favoritism at play, especially when managers distribute workload, as well as for promotions. Say they want to invest in employees, but actions show very differently
