    I have been working at Adobe full-time

    Pros

    Adobe has amazing benefits and for the most part treats their employees with respect.

    Cons

    You have limited career growth potential the longer you remain at Adobe. If you just want a stable job, Adobe is perfect for that. If you want to eventually move up to the next level in your career, Adobe is not the place for you. People remain at Adobe for long periods of time, so opportunities for advancement do not come up often.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to give people more career growth potential. Provide more training opportunities for employees. For people that have been there 5+ years, move them around to a role that might bet out of scope for them but gives them a chance to grow their career.

    Pros

    Amazing people and fresh talent - pockets of innovation and fresh talent all over the company, which has been running more like a startup since it moved to a subscription model a few years back. Very hard-working folks.

    Cons

    Can be hard to get things done in a huge organization - the institutional memory of how things used to work during the software only phase can be hard to shake.
