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

    Pros

    Really great place to work. Loads of flexibility to arrange your own schedule- Dr. Appts, WFH, whatever works for you. Amazing benefits.

    Cons

    Siloed, but this is true at most big companies. People are not all open to collaboration and sharing of ideas.

    Advice to Management

    I don't really have any advice to management... maybe just to work on the culture to get more peoples to stop caring about "owning" ideas and instead to work together to accomplish things.

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

    Pros

    Typically 4 weeks vacation depending on your manager. Salary was competitive once worth was established but not right away. A lot of family events that my kids loved

    Cons

    Extremely boring as well as working with sales leaders who want it done their way instead of scale friendly processes

    Advice to Management

    Provide engaging projects to work on in order to keep employees engaged.

    Pros

    It is a place where you can build a long-term career, and work on amazing technologies. The people are great here; engaged, friendly, and professional. Work life balance is excellent

    Cons

    Things move slower here than at most other companies. Adobe tried to move faster, but has only made modest gains there. Career growth (title) generally takes longer than at other companies, though compensation is really good throughout the process.

    Pros

    Great company, benefits, and culture. Good work life balance. Competitive industry with strong strategic business partner ecosystem. Fun place to work.

    Cons

    Upward mobility is minimal with few senior executives leaving the organization. Attrition metrics calculated into compensation model can become demoralizing.

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

    Pros

    Executive team has a strong vision and they are very focused on growing the business. Their customers always come first.

    For employees, the company has been doing extremely well with their Cloud offerings so the stock has nearly tripled in price in less than 3 years making a great ROI for employees that get RSUs. Pay is good/ average compared to other companies in the area.

    Lastly, it's a great place to be if you're looking for flexibility and WFH opportunities. As long as you're doing your job and in the office for key in person meetings, they don't care where you work from.

    Cons

    If you are motivated and career driven, this is not the place for you. There is no CLEAR path to promotions. Most of the management/ Director positions are filled with external candidates and it is extremely difficult to move up unless you have an executive sponsor. Also, they don't conduct formal performance reviews which could be part of the problem.

    Adobe often times prides itself in being one of the BEST places to work but HR works hard on these surveys and they are always asking employees to rate them well.

    Company is also very political, more so than other places in the valley so you have to know and gain trust with the right people. Otherwise, your voice will never be heard.

    Advice to Management

    None
