    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 (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Superior work culture & environment: pleasant, warm/friendly, clean
    -Emotional intelligence and interpersonal skills are valued highly; as a result, everyone (in my two months) has been a delight to work with
    -The employee experience is valued highly
    -Great benefits & perks
    -I love the gym here

    Cons

    -The PPT deck (and presentation) is a main communication currency here. Often, I think a summary email would be much more efficient.

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

    Pros

    I love the company culture and the job that I do. I have a great team.

    Cons

    I have a long commute and hate sitting in traffic -- if I could eliminate the traffic it would be perfect.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to treat employees wonderfully and look toward future trends in the industry the way they have been.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Adobe full-time

    Pros

    - A lot of really smart people work at Adobe
    - Kickbox is a very good program to get into

    Cons

    - Managers will pick people and move them to teams to inflate headcount
    - Political games by management

    Advice to Management

    Stop letting managers who haven't shipped a product kill perfectly good teams of engineers. Adobe has acquired so many promising companies just to kill teams and re-assign them to dead-end jobs that they are bound to quit in six to twelve months.

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

    Pros

    I've worked for Adobe for four years. It's the best company I've ever worked for, by far. Adobe cares about its employees. The offer a competitive salary, flexible schedule, and lots of PTO, including two mandatory shut downs. I've worked in three different positions in my four years, so there's lots of room to move upwards if you're driven. It's a fast-paced environment, things are never boring. The culture is very open and inclusive, with an emphasis on accountability and ownership. My team has a very tight-knit, almost familial feel. I love working for Adobe.

    Cons

    Any problems or frustrations I've experienced at Adobe have been tied directly to the group I worked in, not Adobe generally. For about a year, I worked in a toxic group with tone-deaf managers who provided no direction, hated feedback, and made their performance goals unattainable. Luckily, I interviewed with another group and moved on. And the management of that group has since been replaced. The bad teams are few and far between, but when they're bad, it's BAD.

    The only other con is the length of time it takes to be promoted internally. It's possible, but the administrative side of things takes forever. We have an interview-heavy culture (10+ interviews for an internal position is extreme).

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees when they provide feedback on management, and be more decisive. Make it easier to be promoted from within. Otherwise, keep on keeping on... Adobe rocks.
