    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

    Great people
    Everyone help each other
    Good work environment
    Awesome benefits
    Competitive salaries

    Cons

    Cons are different depending on which organization you are in, which office you work in, who you report to and who is your VP. As a company in general, the only con I have is the fact that Adobe is going towards "Open Space" work environment. Everyone (including managers and directors) in Seattle office will have a very small cubicles and no privacy starting in 2019.

    HR and Upper Management impervious to reason when it comes to negotiating the reality of modern work conditions.

    Pros

    Safe and friendly culture, very inclusive and appreciative of diverse talents
    Company stock doing well, great gains on ESPP
    Awesome products to work on
    Great investment in employee training & learning opportunities

    Cons

    Work can get boring and maintenance oriented some times, particularly for old products with a lot of legacy code.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work.

    It would be great if engineering managers could encourage 20% of the time for working on innovative projects, or organize hackathons, to provide developers some exposure outside of their assigned work.
