    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.
